Posted By: DougI have long been a fan of the cheap plastic Kuhn Rikon peelers, they are the best, most comfortable to use, and have the best eye puller in the game. Using a y peeler is a necessity in a kitchen with any volume, less fatigue, and its easier to cut shallow on your veg. There is one problem with them. The blades are blued or coated steel, not stainless, so leaving them in the sanitizer bucket is a death knell.
So I picked this guy up from CKTG, and it is excellent. All stainless, and it sinks in the sanitizer bucket. Toss it in between uses, pull it out and dry it off when prep is done.
The only caveat. I wish it had the same handle and eye puller as the original plastic model. That's not enough to knock a star off of a great tool, though. If you do a lot of veg prep at work, or just want a peeler that will last the rest of your life at home, this is the ticket. Price is totally reasonable, especially when compared to some of the fancy department store brands.
