Holding this peeler is awkward. It feels very small in your hand and the way the handle is designed, it's not easy to grip. Also, since the body is made from pliable / bendable plastic, the blade came out of the handle when I tried to wash it. I had to pop it back in, in order to use it. Not a good sign.
Also, not sure if this is good or bad, but it shaves very thin slices from whatever it is you're trying to peel. Since it's not adjustable (most, if not all peelers, are not), if thin slices are not your thing, you just have to keep peeling.
Unfortunately, I can't give a long term review of this peeler... The thing rusted after the first time I used it!
Don't waste your time or money on this.

The Kuhn, by the way, was selected as the best peeler of 2018 at 1/3 -1/4 the cost of higher end competitors.
Regarding the "rust problem" — As I said, I've been using these peelers for months with NO sign of rust. I don't wash them in the dishwasher. (Why would you?) Since fruits and vegetables aren't laden with fat the wash-up is extremely simple. When I'm done peeling I give them a quick rinse under hot water, and dry immediately. They remain as rust-free and sharp (almost dangerously so) as they were the day they arrived. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
ADDED on 4/20/18:
I've now had these peelers for a little over 2 years. After a while, using them almost daily, I decided to try putting one of them in the dishwasher. I figured that they were cheap enough that even if one was destroyed I could get another. There were NO problems at all with washing these in the dishwasher. I put them in the silverware basket, which is in the bottom rack, and there is no difference that I can discern. All 3 of them are still as sharp as the day I bought them, and without any sign of rust. I'm 72 and I'll probably be able to will these to someone! You simply cannot go wrong with these peelers.
I've now had the peelers for 4 years, and regularly wash them in the dishwasher. They're just as sharp as the day I got them. They'll peel anything — including butternut squash. BEST. PEELERS. EVER!
My first peeler is over five years old and still as sharp as the day son gave it to me. I rinse it in hot water, lay on the window sill to air dry and then store it to nothing rubs against the blades. I recently bought another set, kept one for myself (always good to have a back up) and gave the other two to my sister. She loves it too.

When you skim through the product images, it’s shows different cuts. Misleading and annoying.
Just digging deep into the actual product page and it says it’s just 3 peelers. Why can’t you make that clear at the top of the description and also change the images used.
Don't waste your money on expensive or fancier looking ones, this is the simplest and best.
I previously owned some nearly the same from Lak*land which I thought I loved best, but their lighter handles always snap apart eventually, whereas these are made more heavily.
The blade is super sharp, yesterday I used them for peeling peppers, which I used to laboriously flame burn, in the past, to relieve them of the bitter skin. The roasted peppers were delicious, and prepared in moments. It must be good to peel extra finely as the nutrients in fruit and veg are largely below the skin anyway.
I am really happy to have found these and reading the positive reviews gave me confidence.
