We've found our fair share of tips, tricks and product recommendations on TikTok, but this latest find has left us speechless — and hungry.

Arguably one the most versatile foods, potatoes can be boiled, baked, and fried into a multitude of yummy creations. There's nothing quite like home fries or tater tots in the morning, and who doesn't love a side of fries (especially truffle fries) with their lunch? Dinner is where things can get a little fancy, from whipped potato puree to crispy smashed potatoes and baked potatoes au gratin. The possibilities are endless! 

Unfortunately, many of these succulent, satisfying side dishes require that you actually peel the potatoes, which is not only difficult but time consuming. So when we discovered the Starfrit Electric Rotato Express on TikTok, we knew we had to share. 

With more than 899K likes and counting, this video by TikToker @jenn_aayyy shows the Rotato Express peeling potatoes with the press of a button, like magic.

Captioned "the laziest invention for millennials who hate peeling things," we can't help but think this gadget would be a huge help in the kitchen. Here it is in action:

The Starfrit Electric Rotato Express can be found on Amazon for just $25 (it's on sale for $22 right now) and is super easy to use. Simply center the food on the bottom holder, lower the upper handle so its spike grasps the food and press down gently. Raise the cutter arm so it's resting on the food that needs to be peeled and press the red button. The skin will peel off in one continuous curl and the machine will automatically stop when it reaches the bottom (it takes less than 10 seconds!)

And it isn't just your potato world that'll be rocked: the Starfrit works on other fruits and veggies too! Use it to skin cucumbers, zucchini and eggplant for summer grilling, and peeling peaches, apples and lemons for pies, juices and snacking.

The Starfrit Electric Rotato Express has a 4.4 star rating and more than 8,000 reviews on Amazon.

"This is probably the greatest gadget in my kitchen at the moment," says one very happy reviewer. "I married a potato fiend. Seriously, this guy can demolish a plate of mashed like nobody’s business. It’s bad enough that I have to peel five pounds of taters just for him on the reg, and when we have company? Ugh.... But this makes peeling potatoes fun! If I ever get drafted into the army, you can be sure this little gem will be coming with me. Highly recommend."

"Love it! It's light and easy to use," said another, who noted how the Rotato Express also keeps wasted food to a minimum. "I was always peeling too much potato along with the peel. This blade is fine and gets only the skin, in seconds.... It's easy to clean if you have a sprayer to just rinse off the spikes where you insert your potatoes. Small enough and doesn't take up much room."
