It's very sharp.
Michael McEachren
For carrots, light pressure results in a thin layer of skin removed -- just enough to remove the rough, dry outer layer.

If you don't believe me, believe Cooks Illustrated, which rated this the top peeler in their test lab!

I purchased the Messermeister Pro-Touch Serrated Swivel Peeler because it was recommended by Cook's Illustrated magazine. As usual, the folks at CI were right. This peeler is super-sharp and cuts through produce peels almost effortlessly.

The blades on most vegetable peelers tend to get dull over time from a combination of normal wear from being used and from being knocked around with other prep tools and utensils .in a kitchen drawer. In the past, I bought slightly less expensive peelers and resigned myself to replacing them more frequently when the blades became dull. However, this Messermeister peeler is not that much more expensive than the OXO Good Grips peelers I had purchased previously (which are nice quality as well), and it comes with a plastic blade cover to protect the sharp edges during storage. This should keep the blades sharp much longer, making it a better value in the long run even though it costs a little more up front.

I used to throw my vegetable peelers in the dishwasher, but with this one I've been hand-washing it immediately after I use it (sometimes all it needs is a quick rinse), drying it and putting on the protective blade cover before returning it to the utensil drawer. So far, it has kept its razor-sharp edge and remains a joy to use.

I doubt I'll ever actually enjoy peeling fruits or vegetables, but this tool certainly helps me get the job done faster and more easily. What more can you ask from a vegetable peeler?

No more blanching! It is just amazing. I saw them using it on America's Test Kitchen and could not believe it. But it works. The only caveat is that if you're peeling 8 or 10, say for sauce, blanching is still quicker. And for everything else, the OXO peelers are still the best, especially the new "i" series swivel model. But for that "one tomato, peeled and seeded" recipes, this is it.

We read about this device, in a UK newspaper, and, as a 'senior person' with many years of struggling with various makes and designs of peelers, was impressed with the comments. so I imported two from Califonia via

a relative and have found it to be 'simply the best' it self- clears the peelings, is razor sharp and the serrations appear to

grip the item one is peeling. I have been waiting all my adult for just this kitchen tool. Well done the design engineers of Messermeister.

should be this little beauty. Could not believe that it worked exactly as I saw it demonstrated (after I figured out that I needed to remove the piece of tape over the edges) on my favorite cooking show..ATK (a/k/a AmericasTestKitchen.com.) Told my daughter about it and now she, plus friends, are going to order some. Everyone should own one! Plan to order other items, soon.

I have to admit, I was sceptical about peeling soft foods like peaches and mangoes, but it worked like a charm. Even my husband likes it.

Peeled a bag of potatoes and a couple carrots with this peeler. Unlike our old Swivel Peeler, the peels constantly get stuck between the blade and the curved plastic part above the blade. (It is hard to see in the pictures but the plastic part that curves over the blade sticks out about 1 inch above the blade. Look at the Messermeister Pro Touch Serrated Swivel Peeler for a better view or see other websites for a side view.)

It does have a sharp blade and takes the peel off, but what's the point if it catches almost all the peels? Both my wife and I tried it and we both disliked it for the same reason.

Btw... Our old peeler looked kinda like this one: RSVP Stainless Steel Fruit and Vegetable Peeler or the "Jonas Original Potato Peeler" (It never caught peels. Replaced our old peeler with the Messermeister because it was dull after 10 years of use.)

(Before anyone asks... I used the peeler blade side down and curved plastic part up... :o) I also varied my peeling speed... Nothing helped.)

Update 2/16/2010
----------------------
Bought the RSVP Stainless Steel Fruit and Vegetable Peeler that I mentioned above. It works great. No stuck peels & peels quickly with no issue. Doesn't seem as sharp as the Messermeister peeler, but sharp enough to peel carrots, potatoes, apples, etc. (i.e I don't think it would peel a tomato. But I didn't buy this peeler for peeling tomatos anyway. The upside is that I won't cut myself as easy either.)

Tossed the Messermeister peeler in the trash.

If you were just going for aesthetics, this peeler would be a pass. Let's face it. The peeler is kind of ugly. What's that big arch for?

But that said, I probably wouldn't ever buy any other brand of peeler ever again.

The Messemeister Pro Touch Swivel peeler peels like no other. Skin comes off my veggies effortlessly - beets, carrots, celery root, ginger...you name it, the MPT peels it like a champ.

Some notes
- peeler is sharp! I sliced my finger taking the protective cover off and didn't notice till I saw I was leaving my mark with blood all over the place
- the paper backing that is attached to the peeler is annoying to take off. I tried ripping it and doing all sorts of things. Finally cutting it most of the way through and then soaking it in water to soften enough did the trick. WHY did the manufacturers attach the peeler to the cardboard like that? What on earth is the swivel circle for??
- the handle is a bit on the thin side if you are used to the thick handles of peelers like the OXO

Bottom line, I've tried the whole gamut of peelers from OXO swivel peelers to that junk you buy from the dollar store when you've moved and can't find your stuff to those Y shaped things and this is definitely my go-to peeler from here on out.

If you don't believe me, believe Cooks Illustrated, which rated this the top peeler in their test lab!
