I'm chiming in with the Oxo fans. I just have a simple version, and it is my second (I did wear one out!), and you cannot convince me that there is something better for me. I peel potatoes, carrots, mangoes, apples, etc with it and love it.

I spent a ton on a ceramic peeler and it did not work worth a hoot, I still like my old slide peeler from the hardware store

I love my OXO peeler, too, as well as my OXO garlic press and OXO salad spinner! :)

I have both the y-peeler and side peeler, like the side one better. I always peel away from me, which works better for me - letting those tater skins fly - !

I wondered about that when watching the add.

Different strokes...
My great-grandmother peeled apples that way - I was always so impressed with that

We would go to the farm and pick apples from the tree in the yard, take them in and wash them, then she would peel them and make fresh applesauce. Thanks for bringing up a great memory

btw, I use a Pampered Chef veggie peeler for peeling potatoes: The Pampered Chef, Ltd.

I really like the pointed tip you can use to gouge out the eyes of a potato.
