Michael Graves Design Automatic Peeler

Our love affair with this graceful and charming lime green tool ended soon after we popped in the batteries, and they popped right out. We got the idea: A battery-charged peeler would make a boring task virtually effortless. But the time saved by technology was wiped out by the frustration. We even tried peeling with the power switched off, but the peeler felt clunky and unsafe. The last straw: The peeler is not dishwasher-safe, making an inconvenient tool even less convenient.
