On a whim I got a harp peeler with a ceramic blade {I got in in a set with a ceramic bladed paring knife}, Truth be told I can't stand it!! For spuds it is awkward and I don't peel alot of other root veggies. I have been meaning to pick up an OXO, just haven't gotten around to it.

I have one very similar to that from a company called Ecko.

Nice big handle
Thingee on the tip for removing eyes, etc.
Works like the one my granny had

With the arthritis in both my hands, peeling anything is challenging and painful. I've had this Kyocera peeler for about 15 years and love it. It peels everything easily, even tomatoes, and I love it to peel sweet potatoes.

We have a couple of peelers from Pampered Chef that I like. Been using them for 5 years or so.

We have a Kitchen Aid one (I think) and I use the birds beak paring knife or my petty knife.

Actually I was paid to express my favorable opinion by the manufacturer. (Not really, this is my first post in this topic.)

In reality I'm not quite satisfied with my peeler. I think I have an OXO (or OXXO?) but it's in my storage and I can't look at it and tell you.

I'll suggest you go to Bed, Bath & Beyond and buy the OXO and try it for 30 days, and return it before the period ends if you don't like it. BB&B is 100 percent in their satisfaction guarantee and you can just get a full refund if you don't like it in any way.

My kind of store! Even better if you get the 20% off coupons. (One a month, I think you can sign up at their website.)

In truth I don't get paid by anybody to express my opinions, although I'd be open to the idea of getting paid to not express them.
