This is my 2nd Messermeister Pro-Touch peeler -- the other is the serrated version, which I've had for a few years. It's very sharp, does a great job on potatoes, carrots, yams, parsnips, rutabagas, ginger -- you name it! I find this style easier to control than the "Y" shaped peelers, although those do a good job, too. To some extent it's a matter of what you're used to. I like this style as it works well when holding the veggie in my left hand (it works equally well with either hand). Clean cuts, easy to guide, little chance of cutting myself. Best of all, it's stainless and can go in the dishwasher without fear or rusting. No wonder it was the top-rated peeler of this style in Cooks Illustrated's test.

BTW, Amazon is currently (November 2010) charging about twice as much for the black version of this peeler -- the green one is identical except for color.

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!

Update: It's now June 2015 and I've had this peeler now for 3 years. Even with heavy use, the peeler still peels great, though it's starting to have a little trouble with soggy vegetables. For it to have stayed this sharp for 3 years is pretty good for me. (and I shouldn't let vegetables get that old anyway!) I wouldn't hesitate to order the same peeler again.

Kept reading the glowing reviews. Broke down and bought 2. One for my daughter, one for me. I'm the old fashioned metal hand held peeler kinda gal.

Well lord almighty. It's so sharp I could shave my legs with it. Thank goodness it comes with a small plastic protector. You'd slice your finger open digging for it in a drawer. Now the protector is a bit tight/hard to get off. And I'm always thinking I'm going to 'break off' the slicing part when I try to take it off. But so far so good. Snapping it back on is a cinch so I don't know why it's so hard to get off?

In any event, I have only peeled a potato so far. But I can tell by the 'peel' just how efficient and sharp this thing is. The peeling is 'different' from the peeling off the old fashioned one. It's thinner, cleaner. And it's like a hot knife through butter.

I personally didn't have any problems with the shavings/peeling flying in the air or all over my hand. The little tip on the end did a fine job of gouging out the 'eyes'. I was worried about this because it's plastic and not metal, but it worked as desired. You just have to be a little more precise in digging out eyes or things because the plastic has a tendency not to 'grab' as well as the metal. It seems to want to slide a bit because of the 'juice' on the vegetable. But still a well made piece.

I just can't believe how super sharp this thing is!! Highly recommend.

UPDATE: I have now 'peeled' the thick stalks of fresh broccoli. You have to press down a BIT to get the "nubs" off the stalk. Because...it shaves/peels off such a thin layer of whatever you're peeling. Which is actually a better thing. It doesn't gouge out a hunk of "insides" along with the peeling. It leaves you with more of the inside of the vegetable.

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?
