Serrated peelers have serrated edges on the peeling blades.
They can be good for soft or slippery skins. Proponents say they making peeling peaches easy, and that they can negate the need for peeling tomatoes with the laborious process of dunks in boiling water then ice water to loosen the skins.
They also have their detractors though, who feel they can yield unsightly results. They say they can leave “unattractive serrated ridges on the surface of the carrots…… Though we were intrigued by a number of peelers with serrated blades, our testers found these more limiting and only useful for specific tasks, such as removing lemon rind without the pith.” Clisset, Christine Cyr et al.

Remember to wash produce first before peeling to reduce surface bacterial load that might be pressed into the flesh of the produce.
