Carpel Tunnel and Potato Peeling - Xmas gift for mom please advise!
My mother had carpel tunnel surgery on both hands. Unfortunately the surgery on her right hand severed a nerve and 2 fingers are very painful to her to touch things with the tips. So some things have become very difficult to her, especially in the kitchen.
Potatoe peeling is one of those things!
Does anyone use a good electric or crank kind of potatoe peeler? I've seen multiple versions and I'm curious which to buy. Yes I'm sure none are as thorough as the old fashioned way, but this is so she can peel herself and not need other people to (though she probably doesn't mind pawning off that work).
So there's a crank version that you just have to manually turn, but the blade does the peeling. That might still be a bit too much work for her, I don't know.
Then there's a fully automated version of that that spirals down the potatoe, but I see lots of mixed reviews about that model!
Then there's some models that are handheld and have rotating blades. So you still have to hold both the potatoe and the cutter, but you don't have the constant up/down motion at least.
