I love my Oxo peeler; in fact, it’s one of my favorite kitchen gadgets.
However, it’s black. The trouble with that is that most of the other gadgets are also black (and much taller than the peeler).
To make things worse, my gadget holder is black, or at least mostly black. It’s also quite deep, in order to accommodate tongs and spatulas and other long tools. But, the peeler is relatively short.
I have the other gadgets and tools sorted, and can easily find them, but every time I put the peeler back in the gadget holder it would get swallowed up. When I wanted to use it again, I had a hard time finding it. Not good when you have a small kitchen, not much counter space, and kitchen organization is critical!
After a bit of thought, I figured out the perfect “kitchen organization hack”: nail polish!
I dabbed some red nail polish on the bottom of the peeler. Now, when I put it back in the holder, (bottom-side up) the red is easy to spot in the midst of all those black gadgets.
When the polish wears off, I simply reapply it. Voilà!
