Prepara - Holiday Gift Guide Review and Giveaway



If you are holiday shopping for someone who has a love of cooking or wants to make their kitchen preparations easier, Prepara has a supply of kitchen tools to enhance the cooking experience.


I've said before that I'm not the Betty Crocker in the home. My husband either enjoys doing the cooking or doesn't want to digest what I've cooked - probably a mixture of both. Although I don't necessarily make all the meals in my home, I will give a helping hand when I'm feeling brave. And, as odd as it seems, I buy all the kitchen gadgets for our home. I like things that are innovative and make food preparation easier for us.

Prepara sent me a Trio Tri-Blade Peeler for review and I actually put it to use myself. Boxed with the peeler was a free paring knife. I left that one to my husband's hands because I'll mangle a perfectly good piece of food when I try using a knife.

Since having the Trio Tri-Blade Peeler, I've been volunteering to peel the potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, and other vegetables. This kitchen gadget is simple to use and makes peeling a cinch. There are three different blades nestled inside the peeler. Depending upon which vegetable needs peeled, you just turn and click a dial at the end of the peeler to select the blade needed. There is a soft blade, a firm blade, and a julienne blade.

It has been so much easier to peel food with this peeler. It has a sharp cut that gets close to the skin so chunks aren't taken out. Since it came with a free paring knife, I've been using the peeler and Jason's been using the knife. We both work together and get the preparation done quicker.

For a limited time, when you purchase a Trio Tri-Blade Peeler online, you will automatically receive a second one FREE.



Win It!

One person will win a Trio Tri-Blade Peeler and paring knife.
