"...pointing her wand a little more vigourously than she had intended at a pile of potatoes in the sink, which shot out of their skins so fast that they ricocheted off the walls and ceiling."
—Molly Weasley makes dinner[src]

This spell is used to quickly peel a group of potatoes, and potentially other similar fruits and vegetables. Molly Weasley used this spell when preparing dinner the night before the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, but was distracted due to being angry at Fred and George Weasley for continuing to produce Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes under her nose and overdid the spell, launching potato skins with such force that they bounced off the walls.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • It is possible this can be used to peel other vegetables such as sprouts[2].
