FieryPhoenix "Angela": I wanted a peeler that would work on large items better and bother my hands less. This was that such peeler. Great grip, easy use and a durable product. I've had it for about a month and it is by far my favorite food prep tool in my kitchen. Much better than anything you'd by in the dollar store. If you want to make short work of a butternut squash, this is the peeler for you.
FSD: I used this for peeling vegetables everyday. So far it has held up well. OXO makes solid products.+Inexpensive+Constructed well+Convenient Design
Gabrielle M. Charest "siber girl": I find the wide blade awkward and should have purchased something different. It is, however, easy to hold and clean.
Happy Human: This is a great peeler. It holds up in the dishwasher - without getting rust spots. It has a comfortable handle.
Indolent: I moved to the US from the UK several years ago, and my husband thought I was ever so slightly insane when we unpacked my (very) few boxes of possessions that I'd chosen to pay to have shipped from there to here and found this little peeler nestling among various irreplaceable sentimental artifacts. I'd packed the thing because it is seriously the best peeler EVER, and having already owned it for several years at that point, how was I to know I'd be easily able to pick up an identical one at any self-respecting store once I got to the US? I wasn't going to take any chances, so the peeler came with me!Anyway. I've had this thing since, let's see.... 2002 (I can date this by a particular apartment move and the accompanying kitchen-goods shopping spree), and it is still going strong. It appears that OXO has several other variations on the Y peeler available now, but the product pictured here is the actual peeler I own, so it's the one I'm going to review. This thing was a revelation! It makes it SO easy to peel potatoes, for a start. Putting the blade at 90 degrees to the handle is a stroke of genius I can only wish the peeler-designers of the 1970s and 80s had been clued into, as it would have saved me the many, many tedious hours of my childhood spent hamfistedly attempting to tease the skins from mountains of spuds destined for our Sunday roast. The combination of the blade position and the rubber thumb/finger grip means that you can relieve large quantities of potatoes from their grubby hides in record time and with pretty much zero effort. Zero blistering, even, which I consider a bonus.... or am I the only one to have ended up with a sore and blistered finger after peeling enough potatoes to feed a Victorian orphanage with one of those evil straight metal peelers from days of yore?Another nice little touch on this peeler is the little 'cup' that sits at the side of the blade. It's there for a very specific purpose, and that purpose is to dig the eyes out of your potatoes. Looking at the unassuming little black plastic 'scoop' in question, I'd never have guessed that it would work so well, but it really does. You can deal with any dodgy bits of your spud that are attempting to spawn whole new potatoes (likewise, any bruised or otherwise grotty bits that you'd rather do away with) as you peel, without needing to reach for knives or other implements.Obviously, this isn't just for potatoes. You can peel anything that needs peeling, of course. I have to say that while the Y design is perfect for potatoes, it's a bit of a pain when you're trying to peel carrots - for the exact same reason that a 'regular' straight peeler works pretty well for carrots and is a total pain when it comes to potatoes.I have one other favorite application for my beloved Y peeler, and that is shaving parmesan (and other cheese). Who needs to bother getting the grater/shaver thingy out of the cupboard when you can just "peel" off as many thin strips of cheese as you need, right onto your pasta or your salad? Works great, saves on washing-up.Seriously, this is one of those little tools that just works perfectly and - I'm pretty sure - can't be improved upon. Every kitchen should have one!
