Yes, most of us use a peeler for the job, but peeling fruits and vegetables can be a cumbersome task, taking up a lot of your preparation time. But how does one generally use a peeler? Usually, we use one side of the blade and start from one tip of the vegetable and roll it downward to peel the rind. But looks like that may not be the correct way to peel.

In a TikTok video that is now going viral, Liv Dalton from Australia shows how to peel correctly using dual blades. “You’ve been using a peeler wrong your whole life,” Dalton wrote while demonstrating how to use the equipment while peeling a carrot.

Going by Dalton’s hack, one can use the peeler from either side and make use of both blades. This means you can continue peeling the vegetables in both upward and downward motion without lifting the peeler. Doing so makes the process easier and quicker, also saving some of your cooking time.
