This device consists of an electric mixer and a mixing bowl with a few accessories. In the bottom of the bowl is a hole in which a peg and disc (a grinding wheel) are first positioned. Fill the bowl with about two cm of water, place the potato in it and then put the cover on. On top of the cover is an attachment on which the electric mixer is placed (without the beaters). When you turn on the electric mixer the disc rotates and the potato is peeled.

This is an extremely useful device. It only takes five minutes to peel one kilogram of potatoes. It works with essentially any mixer.
