Peel Pride by Rianne Koens

View all 8 Photos

The fresh smells of citrus are bright and awakening. A simple orange peel can cheer up a martini. Squeeze of lime puts a kick in guacamole. The hush of pink grapefruit instantly zings your taste buds.

The careful thought behind this set of citrus kitchen tools by Rianne Koens is incredibly executed. Her experience cooking has lead her to discover a new way to get the most out of our lemons. They match each other with light wood details, pretty enough to leave out on the counter for display. The set named peel pride includes a peeler called flinterdunschiller, drying racks called schillendroger, a grinder called schillenstamper, a storage container with shaker called schillenstrooier, and a steeper for drinks, of course, called schillenplons.

The titles for these gadgets are recognized as Dutch.  Their meanings are a fun reminder to play with our food:

Flinterdunschiller –  means thin peeler, since it is thinner than most peelers, specifically taking off just the outer peel that holds all the aroma.

Schillendroger – means peel dryer, appropriately.  These racks are stackable, allowing you to leave them out for days to process in a cute, compact stack.

Schillenstamper – means peel pestle, for the similarity to the classic version of mortar and pestle made of stone or ceramic.  This version has acute teeth to break up the peel fibers easily.

Schillenstrooier – means peel spreader since the bottom lid removes to reveal a shaker head.

Schillenplons means – peel splash, making us excited to try different and new combos of peel bits adding flavor our teas, waters and other drinks.
