Hitohira Brass Fish Scaler Large
Fish scalers date back to ancient times and are still a commonly used tool in modern kitchens. Constructed from brass, these scalers are tough and corrosion resistant, able to dislodge the scales of even the toughest fish. Using a scaler is safer and more efficient than a knife, allowing the user to keep their hands away from sharp fins.
The small scaler comes with 18 brass teeth and are great for smaller fish such as trout and pomfret, while the large scaler comes with 32 teeth and is ideal for medium to large fish such as salmon and king mackerel. These are excellent for home cooks who enjoy preparing whole fish as well as those working in seafood markets.
Though we don’t recommend scaling at home because it can be an extremely messy process, if you want to be that person, please place the fish inside a plastic bag while scaling because it makes cleaning up a lot easier. Less yelling from your mother/spouse after finding scales in random spots over your kitchen walls, floors and hair.
Note: it is important to rinse these scalers clean after each use, since residual salt can cause them to rust.
