Any good Tomato peeler will work in my opinion. I just never peeled a peach before, so cannot guarantee. But why would you want to peel a peach? Just wondering. There must be something special.

I have two Kyocera vertical (as opposed to "Y" variety) vegetable peelers. One is ceramic, the other is metal. I've had them for close to 15 years and they peel...everything and easily. I have seen no reduced cutting ability over the time I've had them. Still cut like they were new.

Here's what they look like: ceramic.

I have severe arthritis in both my hands which makes peeling anything a bit of a challenge. These goodies move like a hot knife through butter. They practically laugh at sweet potato "hide." Peeling fresh tomatoes is no problem, so I can see no reason they wouldn't do a fine job on peaches.

Here's what they look like: ceramic version.

Katie, that reference didn't come through.

Nope, not for me either. Just gives an error.

Try it now. I think I've fixed it.

I'm in the "Alton Brown Camp" of, I don't purchase kitchen tools that are single functioning.
I sharpen my paring knife every time I use it; I use that to peel peaches without blanching, so that I can add the fresh, uncooked fruit to dishes.

I'm also in the Alton Brown camp, but arthritis has caused me to veer off the multi-purpose road for some tools.

OMG - I'm sorry but I just can't believe someone would pay that price for a vegetable peeler. Max. price is 3.99 and even then usually on special. I have one I bought while setting up my first kitchen back in the mid-60's. I still have it! Getting a little thin on the side but the more it is used... the sharper it becomes!

Bought a new one but is still not as sharp as the old, just haven't used it enough. Received a Y shaped ceramic one included with another purchase, am only just starting to get used to it and still certainly not my favourite.

Here is a pic (I hope) and even today it is only $3.99 Canadian! Best peeler ever!
