You may already know that when it comes to peeling ginger, scraping the edge of a spoon over the ginger works better than trimming with a paring knife—the knife cuts too deeply into the flesh, while the spoon just grazes the skin. Building on the spoon technique, Oxo has come up with this little ginger-peeling tool. It’s not a vast improvement over a spoon, but it has a couple of advantages. The fat rubber handle is more comfortable and easier to grasp than a narrow spoon handle, and its slightly pointed tip helps you maneuver into the grooves between ginger knobs, especially the little ones. It also has a slightly sharper edge than most spoons. If you only occasionally peel ginger, you can stick with a spoon, but if you cook with it often—or if you’re a kitchen gadget junkie—then you might want to add this one to your collection.
