I have working in the kitchen proffessionally for over 20 years. This is one of the best peelers in the world. Like all other reviews this little peeler has the ability to handle tough items with ease, including hard gourds, but also is delicate enough to peel a tomato. The blade is extremely sharp and requires little maintenance. As far as the rusting of the blade PLEASE DO NOT put this peeler in the dishwasher. The carbon blade is reactive to acidity and requires a little food grade oil for storage. i have had one for ten years now and looks like new. If the blade does rust all you need is a SOS pad to remove and preventative maitenance in between. Never store wet and always wash after use in a mild soap solution dry completely after use and apply oil sparingly to the blade for storage. This peeler is well worth the price and is a great investment for the home cook and the proffessional. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED

These are the best peelers ever made. As a professional chef, I've been using the same Rikon peeler for 6 years. It can still slice off my finger tip, even after the several tons of potatoes, turnips, beets, lemons, oranges, asparagus, apples, and carrots it has peeled. And no one has yet beaten me in the "Who Can Peel Fifty Pounds of Potatoes the Quickest" challenge. My peeler and my chef's knife are the two items no one is ever allowed to touch.

For those who work in the food industry, this one is an essential.

Common complaints: Blade rusts, awkward to use, feels cheap.
Response:
1.) The blade rusts because the peeler is not made of stainless steel. As someone else has already pointed out, it's carbon steel which requires more care (rinse/wash & wipe try with a kitchen towel right away) to prevent rusting. However, this makes the Kuhn Rikon peelers MUCH sharper. They also keep their edge longer than your normal metal swivel head peeler that most people are used to seeing.
2.) For new users, the kuhn rikon peeler can feel quite awkward because its Y-shape means that it is best for certain things. In the restaurant business, peeling 10gallons of potatoes for mash happens every couple days and this is the peeler to do it. The Y-peeler is best for certain tasks and requires a certain grip and technique. It takes some getting used to but once you've got it down, you'll be going through apples and potatoes like no one's business.
3.) These peelers aren't meant to be kept for years unless of course you only peel a few veggies a year. For the product intended use, these are plenty sturdy, can be thrown around, used, abused and still stay sharper for longer. Many prep cooks go through one of these every couple months just because of the sheer volume of food they prepare. So, with professional wear and tear, you're not going to keep them around forever. The reason why cooking professionals are generally so satisfied with these is that the Kuhn Rikons are the best peelers when considering working efficiency, durability and price.

Summary: If you're a home cook who only peels an apple as a snack and a few potatoes for dinner every few days, you might not want to bother with getting used to a different kind of peeler and the slightly higher maintenance. BUT if you're in the food industry, you know that you can't find what the Kuhn Rikon peelers have to offer anywhere else.

I've used these peelers for more than 20 years. They last until someone breaks them doing something stupid (like trying to open a jar with one). I peel 100 to 200 pounds of potatoes a year. I peel more than one hundred pounds of carrots a year. A good peeler is really, really important in my kitchen. The bright colors make it easy to find the peeler in the knife drawer (unless you get a dark one). I have, at any one time, three in service, one or two as back ups. Most of the back ups are given to friends who see the peelers in use and who had nothing as good. For $3.50 I can be a hero. Anyway, if you have a typical crappy vegetable peeler, throw it away and order some of these. You'll thank me later.

I had a cheap Chinese peeler before that I bought at the Dollar General store several years ago for $1.00, but recently the blade has gone dull beyond tolerance, so I decided to pay more for a quality peeler. I did some research and compared several different quality peelers before I settled with this one. My grandparents have this kind of Kuhn Rikon peeler that is at least 10 years ago and has more squarish handle at the end, and in the center it is molded with "Kuhn Rikon Made in Switzerland", instead of "Kuhn Rikon Switzerland" like on this new version. Their old peeler still runs sharp; a fact that played in the decision to buy this 3-pack of peelers. The peeler is sharp, cuts with ease, and the slices that it cuts are very thin. I had this peeler for 6 days so far and I used it on cucumbers and mangos. Cutting with this Kuhn Rikon peeler is very easy and it glides smoothly. Once the neighbors heard about my new peeler on the 3rd day, I had to order another 3-pack and I sold them all individually to the interested neighbors. For household use, this is the peeler to have.

I broke my last peeler Swiss peeler, after many years of service, and was looking high and low in the stores for a replacement. I actually purchased another peeler, that brand they sell at Bed Bath and Beyond, and spent $9.00 on it. What a jerk I am!

This one is by far the best, keeps an edge, has a good feel in your hand and never slips and nicks you.

I bought two, now my estate will have one when I am gone.
