It's $65 for an Oxo on Amazon with free shipping, GB, did you see Andy's post? I'm kinda coveting one my own self, though the one I have now is perfectly adequate.

Oh wow I didn't realize it was the same model. Thanks for pointing that out. You just saved me a bunch of moolah!

After having problems with many different plastic models several years ago my husband went to our local purveyor and shelled out the big bucks for a Bron. I'm pretty happy with it. I found the guard awkward to use (on all models) so bought myself one of those chain mail type gloves from Chef's catalog. Much more easy to manipulate. Also, in the interests of safety, when I clean/peel vegetables, I leave the stem end on to give me a sort of "handle". I never try to slice to the very end of any vegetable, instead I just toss the ends into a bag in he freezer for soup.
