Designer Valerio Sommella created these handle-free veggie peelers, which boast elegance and precision. The hand-held peeler fits into each user's palm, allowing them to get a closer cut on each vegetable.

By removing the handle from the original vegetable peeler, it allows for a more accurate slice. This will ensure that only the thinnest layer of skin is removed from the vegetable, which ensures there is no excess waste from the veggies. Additionally, by reducing the space between the user and the product, it creates a more intimate relationship.

These veggie peelers titled 'Sfrido' were created for Alessi 2015. This year's theme was to enhance a basic or simple tool in a powerful and unique way. Sfrido is described as a product that: "transcends the standard relationship between instrument and user."
