Leave it to TikTok users to highlight kitchen gadgets that make everyday tasks way easier. From a top-rated mandoline to a ″genius″ bagel guillotine, the social media platform is full of videos with under-the-radar Amazon finds that can reduce the amount of time you spend preparing meals.

The latest life-changing gadget to go viral is this electric fruit and vegetable peeler—and it's currently 26% off on Amazon. TikTok user @jenn_aayyy posted a video featuring the electric peeler last month, and since then, it has garnered over 800,000 likes, earning the gadget a spot in Amazon's Internet Famous section.

It comes with two replacement blades, a thumb knife, and a power cord (it can also operate with batteries). To use it, all you have to do is place your fruit or vegetable on the bottom holder, pull down the upper holder onto the top of the produce, and press the red button. The machine will then rotate your fruit or vegetable in continuous circles and peel off the skin in one neat motion.

It has reduced my prep time significantly with foods such as mashed potatoes and apple pies. This product has saved so much 'wear and tear' on my body."

A second shopper added, "My folks suffer from severe arthritis and peeling potatoes has become more difficult for them, and my mom refuses to let it interfere with her cooking. They use this thing quite a lot for potatoes and vegetables, and they are thinking about getting another one."

Many other customers shared that in addition to saving them time and hand pain, the electric peeler is super satisfying to watch in action. As one reviewer wrote, it "makes peeling fun." Who knew such a sentiment was even possible?
