Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this veggie peeler I guess I am just easily amused, but this is the best veggie peeler. Nicely fits in the hand and my hand doesn't get fatigued. Much better than the expensive rubber handled one I had. Blade is nice and sharp. Well constructed and sturdy. I like it so much I bought 5 more to give as Christmas gifts!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great initially but broke I really like this peeler. I had a similar one from Ikea for years until it got dull. So I purchased a new one last month. It seems a bit buggy than the previous one. It worked great for the first couple times I used it. But then it just broke. A steel piece from inside of it just broke off. I am very disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new veggie peeler Bought this on a whim to replace my fancy peeler from another store that broke into about 6 pieces after less than a year. So happy I did! The Vardagen functions perfectly - easy to hold, with classic peeling action. Much safer than a paring knife for carrots and other slippery skinned veggies. Hope to have it in my kitchen for many years to come.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke by just one use! I used it once for peeling a carrot, and everything got disintegrated. Pitched and bought new one from some other manufacturer. It was very cheap, but it was still money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Peeler This broke apart the 2nd time I used it! Wasn't expensive, but not throw away either...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after just a few weeks Bought this a few weeks ago, and the peeler worked great for a while. Like that it can be handled both left and right handed. Do not like that it broke at the handle after just a few weeks. Will bring it back next time we swing by IKEA, but I do not think I have the receipt anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!! Difficult to find the perfect peeler. This one is just right, sharp, thin peels, comfortable in your hand, and inexpensive. Don't change it.

Designing for the tastes of people around the world

In Swedish, VARDAGEN means “every day”, which is just how the cooking and eating products with that name are meant to be used, no matter where you live. The series is specifically designed to cater to the international trend toward transculturalism—a big word that basically means global eating and cooking habits are a lot more similar than you might think.

“Consumers have access to cultural diversity in cooking and eating from all over the world,” explains Ina Tidbeck Sjöblom, who works with the team that creates IKEA’s cooking and eating products. “They want to taste the best of all cultures.” People are adventurous too, with 69% saying they like to let their taste buds travel, trying new and different cuisines. “Which means that it’s not only in Asia that we need to have eating products for sushi,” Ina says.

Creating products for all our differences (and similarities)

Transculturalism is about figuring out how to make differences into similarities too—a trick VARDAGEN does without anyone even noticing. How? The collection is designed so single products work in multiple ways. Take the egg cup for example. It’s a staple on many European breakfast tables, but it can be something else too. “We did the egg cup in a shape that it’s more like a very small dip bowl,” explains Ina. “So it’s also for Asian eating, you know this small bowl where you put your chili paste and other condiments.” The small VARDAGEN bowl is another example of transcultural design. It’s the right size and shape to be the all-important rice bowl for Asian markets, and it’s just right to be used as a side-salad or cereal bowl in other parts of the world.

Answering the global demand for durability

“We haven’t done anything like it before,” says Ina. “It’s huge.” VARDAGEN is the biggest collection of traditional cooking and eating essentials IKEA has ever released. And thanks to the versatility of the products, the series is uniquely suited to the global market—catering to the needs of eaters living from Hong Kong to New York and everywhere in between. One thing people all over the world seem to agree on is the importance of durability. “We know from all the studies and research we do that people don’t want to buy and throw away things, they want to buy something that lasts,” says Ina. “So, we chose to work with honest and durable materials that are long-lasting.” VARDAGEN is made from durable and sustainable materials, like glass, porcelain and stainless steel. That means, just like the name VARDAGEN suggests, they’ll be useful every day for many days to come.
