OXO's Peelers – An a-peel-ing alternative
The Swivel Peeler was the first of over 800 OXO tools introduced since 1990. OXO's founder was inspired to create a better functioning, more comfortable alternative to the traditional metal peeler after watching his wife struggle while peeling apples for a tart.
OXO's line of peelers includes options for all kinds of preferences, including the original Swivel Peeler, a Y-Peeler, a Serrated Peeler and a Julienne Peeler.
OXO's iconic Swivel Peeler has found a home in the permanent collections of museums all over the world, including New York City's Museum of Modern Art. Next time, tell your friends you own a bona-fide museum piece!
- Small, uncomfortable handles hurt users' hands during repetitive tasks and require strength to grip; Handles do not flex for comfort
- Materials used are slippery, especially when wet
- Inefficient blades with poor cutting angles and sharpness cut into edible parts of fruits and vegetables, resulting in significant waste
- During development, designers literally watched people of all ages and abilities (male & female, young & old, lefties & righties and people with special needs) interact with the product to identify precisely where on the handle users applied pressure while peeling.
- The design team explored hundreds of different handles and learned that a bicycle handle, with its large size and "grippy" material, was a very effective jumping-off point for the Swivel Peeler. Bicycle handles have to be sturdy enough to give riders a significant amount of control, a feature that was lacking in the world of kitchen tools.
- While sourcing parts for the original Swivel Peeler, designers worked with a blade manufacturer that was famous for creating Samurai swords. What better way to ensure the user would not have to expend much effort when peeling a carrot, apple or potato?
- Large handle fits comfortably in hand and elliptical shape keeps it from rotating; "Fins" on either side absorb pressure while in use.
- Durable, rubberized material provides a cushioned, non-slip grip and significant control, even when wet.
- Sharp blades are angled to remove only the minimum amount of peel necessary with little force
With the introduction of the Swivel Peeler, OXO set a new standard by creating a wonderfully effective, attractive tool that people of all ages and abilities were proud and eager to use. Consumers everywhere were taken with the "roly-poly, pudgy handles, " changing the look of kitchens the world over.
Ever wonder what makes an OXO product an "OXO Product"?
OXO employees believe there are two rules that should guide product development: First, every new product must deliver a significant improvement over the status quo. Second, the functionality should never be sacrificed to make the product more attractive – above all it should work well.

This peeler far outperforms any other general store peeler I've ever owned, straight or Y shaped The i-Series is also known as the "pro" series in the Oxo line, so don't get confused, there are just two series, the standard and the i-Series.
Since I feel this peeler's only competition, from my experience, is the aforementioned standard Oxo peeler, I've tried to identify similarities and differences between these two Oxo products below.
If you are buying through Amazon, they frequently run "4 for 3" promotions on kitchen items so you may find you can get the i-Series, or another item for free, if you are buying three other qualifying items.
It's a simple fact that all blades dull over time. The i-Series also accepts replacement blades, whereas the standard series does not. The replacement blades are about $4.99 for a 2-pack, so it's less than buying a new peeler, and still economical if you own both the OXOi-Series straight swivel and Y peeler, as the blades fit on either i-Series peeler.
I would say both peelers perform about the same, although the i-Series does seem to peel away tough skin like that of an eggplant with slightly more ease.
When peeling a lot of items, multiple potatoes, eggplant, etc. I find that the i-Series is more appropriate for this task, as the handle is a bit more comfortable over time. Both peelers are comfortable, but for prolonged use, the "nubs" on the handle of the standard made that peeler just a little less comfortable.
Both peelers have a stainless steel blade; both have non-slip handles, and are a similar shape and size.
The i-Series is made of die-cast zinc and weighs about 4 ounces, compared to approximately 2 ounces for the standard peeler.
The handle of the standard peeler has little nubs along both sides near the top. They weren't particularly uncomfortable, but as noted above, during prolonged use I seemed to notice them. The handle is smooth and contoured on the i-Series.
These differences are ever so slight, and it is not like the standard peeler made my hand ache or anything for prolonged, repetitive use.
In closing the performance and cost differences are not huge, so depending on your own peeling frequency, you may find it better to go with the standard.
I would say anyone needed a good quality peeler would be happy with either Oxo peeler.
Once I got over being disgusted by the other peeler, I made the wise decision to spend a few dollars more and get a second excellent OXO peeler. It works just as I expected based on my many years of use of the first peeler. Lesson learned, spend the extra few dollars and get a known quality product.
Far and away superior to others from Kuhn Rikon, Victorinox, and Messermeister.
The Victorinox and Messermeister serrated peelers are OK, but the steel Oxo is a big step up.
On a friend's advice, I sprung for this peeler, but I really doubted it would do the job.
It arrived, I pulled out a squash, ran the peeler down the side of it.... and with just a bit of firm pressure, the Oxo peeler shaved away a thin slice of the peel. It took me less than 5 minutes to do that entire squash - where it took me a half hour to do one using the now-defunct carrot peeler, a paring knife, sore shoulders and quite a few unprintable words.
It also works far better on things like potatoes and beets. I'm definitely a happy owner!
By the way - the one thing I do NOT love it for is plain old carrots. I can zip through peeling a carrot using the lightweight carrot peeler (a new one, not the one I mangled on the squash) in just a few seconds. The angle of a straight peeler is better for carrots than this Y-shaped one.
A warning when peeling potatoes / beets / other hand-held items: I've found it's safer to put the vegetable on a cutting board, and brace it with my left hand while peeling with the right. When I held it in my left hand, I found it a bit too easy to slip and take out a chunk of my skin (ouch!).
