Apostrophe Orange Peeler from Alessi

This small and functional objet d'art was my Valentine's Day present from my sweetie, and I am really loving it. Do you need a gadget to peel an orange? Of course not. But if you love citrus and like little modern objects in the kitchen, then this is a sweet gift to yourself. It does a good job hooking its tiny snout into orange peel and getting you started on a piece of juicy winter citrus. But it also stands up on its weighted base and wobbles, just a bit, like a toy for grownups. This little thing has personality and it's terribly enjoyable.
