If you ever need to peel a bunch of carrots and you can't find a peeler, reach out for the soda can.

Yes, you can use a knife to peel your veggies, but what if you're not great in peeling things with a knife?

I personally prefer a peeler as I am too slow with a knife.

In this Instructable, I demonstrate a way to make a peeler from a soda can.


If you are Interested in the video version of this Instructable and the embedded video does not appear on your mobile device, here is an alternative link

Step 1:

Empty the can and break off the ring.

Cut off the top with a can opener.

Step 2:

Remove the tab

Step 3:

To make sure you don't cut yourself, trim the edges with scissors.

Step 4:

Bend the narrow part of the top a little bit, so it could cut off the skin.

That's it!

Now go on and peel some carrots :)

If the peeler is cutting the skin too thick or too thin, adjust the "blade"

<p>It might not be very healthy in the &quot;long-term&quot; because it's made of aluminum...</p><p>Make sure not to cut yourself with it, You don't want it to be a &quot;finger peeler&quot; ;)</p>
<p>Is there a health problem associated with aluminium?</p>
<p>Yes (<a href="https://www.google.co.il/search?q=do+not+use+aluminum+for+cooking&oq=do+not+use+aluminum+for+cooking&aqs=chrome..69i57.9276j0j7&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8">link</a>)</p><p>It isn't extremely poisonous, But as I said: It might not be very healthy in the long-term</p>
<p>It's only to be used for emergencies :)</p><p>Or, you can use a steel can.</p><p>In the instructables &quot;<a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Awesome-Spinning-Toy-made-from-Soda-Cans/" style="">Awesome Spinning Toy made from Soda Cans</a>&quot; I used steel cans.</p><p>Not sure if you can get them anywhere, but in some EU countries Pepsi and Coca-Cola are made of steel (some of them)</p>
<p>it is nice but I was afraid to injure my fingers, so i glued a piece of Nylon around the edges, really thanks</p>
<p>Excellent article!</p><p>It might be nice to put something around the edges to finish it, e.g. maybe cover the sharp edges with a ring of rubber material or the like.</p>
This is very good, who would of thought.The fewer smaller tools used for mutable purposes Leaves more room..I tried it and liked it . my dog and I just ate the raw potato.
<p>Nice One</p>
<p>Nice! I'll have to try this next time I peel!</p>
<p>Cheers!</p>
