EZ Reader "ezreader2": Wow! I'm the lone dissenter here. I use this y-shaped peeler mainly for potatoes; however, I'm ashamed to admit in light of all the other positive reviews that this peeler brings me quite a bit of anxiety each time I use it. I've bought quite a few peelers in my lifetime, always searching for that "perfect" peeler. Yes, this is the best peeler I've owned so far, altho' this is the only one bought online. Yes, it's very sharp and quick. Maybe it's due to my age (not telling) or my small hands, but I yet find it very awkward to hold a potato in my hand and peel each end and side of the potato using this peeler without nearly slicing a portion of my hand or fingers in the process. One has to hold a potato "just so" in order to peel the potato properly. If not careful, the potato will slip out of your hand or you will slice the side of your thumb, finger or palm. I've actually sliced myself once and "almost" a few times too many since I've had this peeler, although I had never had any issues with any other peeler. After 2 years, it's still too stressful peeling a potato with this type peeler. So for me, back to the pursuit of the perfect peeler I go. . . .
KSM "sane shopper--": Unbelievably awesome. I have had this peeler since 2004 and it is still sharp and like new! This peeler feels so comfortable in my hand and is a pleasure to use, it has never rusted and has sat in dishwasher and sink many times.
lawyerwhocooks "lawyerwhocooks": This peeler has a lovely matte steel finish-look, is not so lightweight as to be dangerous (it has good heft), possesses a thick handle to prevent you from losing your grip, and peels carrots and cucumbers (and other veggies/fruits) in record time. This is a great buy, and just think - you won't have to pull out that embarrassing rusty old peeler next time you have friends or family in the kitchen watching you work.
Senor Zoidbergo: This is fine as vegetable peelers go, but the blade isn't as sharp as I would have preferred.
Big-Z: This is a handly sharpener for all knives and is one of the best non electric ones. It is easy to hold and does a good job on all the knives I have tried on it. Even for a quick touch-up it works well. Great for the price.
