Worth Ordering Online: Veggie Fry Must-Haves

OXO Good Grips Y Peeler - When you're peeling a vegetable that has tough skin (like jicama or butternut squash), you need a tool that's up to the challenge. We've used a lot of peelers in the HG test kitchen, and this find is our go-to!

HIC Wavy Crinkle Cutting Tool - Unlike some crinkle cutters, this one is super easy to manage, thanks to the cozy molded handle on top. And when you cut your veggies into cute crinkle shapes, they look just like fries from your favorite diner!

Extra-Large Air Fryer - If you still haven't added an air fryer to your arsenal, now’s the time! Make fried food with less fat, or use it like a quick-cooking mini oven. The XL versions let you cook more food at once.
