Add me to the list. As far as I'm concerned, the only vegetable peeler worth owning is the Oxo good grips. I wore one out (you have to understand my kitchen is full of stuff that has lived in many states, a trailer that travelled the country back and forth for three years, and storage. The latter is a killer.) and hubby bought me what he thought was the same thing. Close, but no cigar. Go back and get me an Oxo. I wasn't thrilled with their knives, not heavy enough for my taste (doesn't mean they wouldn't be good for someone else). I also love their can openers. I especially recommend them to freinds who are starting to have problems with arthritic hands. When you are literally losing your grip, those nice handles on things can really extend the amount of time you have left enjoying cooking.

I especially love all their fat black rubberized handles on their products!!

You can really get a good grip on their things when you use them, hence the nickname Good Grips!!!

Also, for anyone looking for Oxo products, BBB has a whole slew of Oxo kitchen tools and gadgets!!

I think they are the biggest supplier so far!

I bought a couple of spreaders a while ago and, since they are claimed to be dishwasher safe, I washed them in the dishwasher. They came out with rust spots!

I complained to OXO and they wrote back to say that even though it's dishwasher safe, they never said it wouldn't rust!

Silly me to assume so much!

In this case, I'd go to either Williams Senoma or a commercial restaurant supply store and get some of those small little SS spreaders that have the wooden handles.

I've used those in food service, and they hold up pretty well and won't rust.
I think I got one that's kept in a tool box with the other small kitchen gadgets.

I have lots of oxo things--salad spinner, dough scraper, peeler.

They also have a line of tools, and though I don't use it for cooking (much) I love their changeable tip screwdriver, and it lives in my kitchen tool drawer.

I like the Oxo can opener, but the tab that locked the opener broke on 2 different openers! So it was back to the trusty Swing-A-Way for me.

I got the Oxo Safety can opener, and it really works good!! I also got and Oxo stainless steel colander that has those famous fat black rubber handles on the sides and three fat rubber legs!

While at BBB today, I also bought another Oxo wooden turner.

Love my OXO measuring cups. They have the convenient 2/3 and 3/4 cupsizes. Except that after 2 years, the cute colored dots with the cup size labels on the 'good grips' have worn off! They don't look so nice now with my permanent marker handwriting... OXO should just emboss the cup sizes.
