A "Peeler;" also known as "Potato Peeler" and/or "Apple Peeler," is a metal blade attached to a handle (wooden, metal or plastic) that is used to scrape off the outer skin or peel of fruits and vegetables. Some Peelers also have an "Eye-Gouger," a metal loop used to remove eyes or other blemishes from Potatoes or other vegetables.
