A TikToker has revealed how you're actually meant to peel potatoes and social media users are in complete shock. Prepare to never look at a peeler the same way again:
Apparently, we've all been peeling potatoes wrong our whole life.
But thankfully, the wonderful world of TikTok has saved us once again.
A user named Jennifer has taken to the platform to reveal how you're actually meant to use a peeler, and people have been left bamboozled.
Content creator and TikTok cook Jennifer (@jenniabs3) took to the platform to fill followers in on a kitchen hack.
The hack? You can use a peeler in more ways you originally thought.
In the video, Jennifer explains: "Did you know the reason why potato peelers swivel back and forth is that you can not only go down but forward when you're peeling so that you can peel the entire thing super fast without having to actually lift up the peeler off of the vegetable."
People have flooded to the video in awe of the kitchen hack.
One user wrote: "I've always gotten mad cause I thought mine was just always loose."
"At this point am I even cooking right. Lol. Thanks for another great tip!" Another said.
A third commented: "Seriously questioning everything I do in life right now."
A final added: "TikTok need to get a teacher of the year award or something, cause no... no I did not know that."
Others theorised there may be another reason for the peeler swivelling.
A user wrote: "Could it just be for right and left handed?"
"That's not why, it's so it works for left and right handed ppl," a second user echoed.
Another resolved: "I think it was made to suit both left and right handed, I am left handed and I don't peel the same side right handed peel."
After the video was shared on Twitter, a final social media resolved: "As a culinary student this hurts to watch, it’s like that for left&right handed people, never pull a peeler towards yourself unless you’re asking for higher risk of injury, same with a knife or any sharp object really."
However, another responded: "Heyo, as a culinary student aswell, i dont think theres any issue with peeling towards you - many of my instructors and the head chef at the restaurant i work at peel towards them whether its with an older style peeler or a Y shaped speed peeler as shown."
