Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is The “Big Peeler” by New Soda. We found this little wonder when Dorothy found a video about making Chicken Enchiladas using zucchini vs. tortillas to keep us on the keto train. On our fist pass we used a standard peeler like this one by Oxo. For a lot of stuff in the Kitchen Oxo is and will always be one of my true go to brands. But when I tried this thing Dorothy came up with I was like, man that is fricken good! So I wanted something to make wider “flat noodles” (flazoodels?) out of zucchini.
So I started checking around on Amazon for an over sized peeler, and found this one. I was kind of skeptical, I mean it is plastic and all and they claim it will peel a fricken butternut or a pineapple. In the end though it has good reviews, as in 5 stars with over 600 ratings. It is also only 10 bucks, free shipping on prime and if it sucks, you can just return it anyway. So we ordered one.
Okay this thing is the bomb! Check the video below were we are making up some flazoodles for the chicken enchilada casserole. On a side note, one thing that makes it so damn good is this Red Enchilada sauce by Casa Fiesta. Amazon doesn’t sell it, we got it at Krogers, if you can’t get it at a local store, that link is a good source for it. Man that stuff is good and yea, low carb too.
Anyway as you guys know I have always been a fan of zoodles and usually make them with a julienne peeler. But now I am excited about what we can come up with flazoodles. I can tell you lasagna is coming soon! I did think of a hack for cooking though we have not tried it yet. One thing I hate about casseroles is they can be too soupy. I figured a simple way to mitigate this. I am going to take a aluminum pan like this one, punch a bunch of 1/8th inch holes in it, crumble up a few small balls of foil, and nest the pan with holes into a second pan to let the excess moisture drain. I will let you guys know how that works when we try it.
Anyway this little 10 dollar peeler is as good as the maker claims. It is awesome for just peeling but if you are on any version of the low carb train a lot can be done with it. Zucchini is obvious but you can also do cool stuff with say daikon radish and other stuff as well. Of course it makes very short work of a potato as well and even has a built in eye remover. So check out the “Big Peeler” by New Soda today and enjoy the short video at the bottom as well.

P.S. – Dorothy shot the VVS (vertical video syndrome) video above and did it vertical due to habit formed by doing all my Instagram videos where they require vertical videos. I hate vertical video, if you are not familiar with VVS see this PSA on it here.
