Rada Cutlery Vegetable Peeler. Used to peel potatoes, carrots, etc. Double-sided blade swivels and works for left handers too.

Because one of the issues I had with my old peeler was the peels getting stuck in the "D" design, I knew I wanted a straight design. The only ones available at the local stores were the OXO or a straight one made of very cheap plastic (for the same price as this one). I decided to hold out for a good quality peeler that could last me a lifetime. I found this peeler on Amazon and I have to say, I am SO happy I did. The stainless steel blade is super sharp and the eye remover slices easily through the potato, compared to the plastic OXO peeler.
People who have arthritis may not be comfortable with the small, lightweight, aluminum handle, however, I find I have more control over this peeler than the one with the clumsy fat handle. I also like that it takes up half the space in my cutlery tray.
I no longer dread the peeling process and get through it much faster with such a sharper blade. I don't have a problem with having to reposition the peeler in my hand as I am working. It can be used right or left handed, toward or away from you, for whatever your peeling needs are. Also, the peels are super thin and because of the straight design, don't fly all over the place if I am working quickly. I can peel right into the trash can without making a mess. The construction is integrated and solid, so I expect that it will last me a long time, that is, if I don't loose it.
This is one of the most practical non-digital devices that a person can use if they have no problems slicing or dicing things in the kitchen. It's as analog as cooking gets and it can be used on lots of fruits and veggies. I'd almost go as far as to say it's a multi-tasker, but I'd have to ask Alton Brown for a multi-tasker verification! Only thing I wouldn't use this on is soft skinned treats like tomatoes or the likes, but we just use a paring knife for something like that. Your mileage will vary, but overall we couldn't be more pleased with this peeler!
What sucks about this is the fact that Rada makes by far the most excellent carrot peeler I have ever used. I have bought them as gifts for years. I keep one in my car in case there is a carrot peeling emergency. This isn't a Rada carrot peeler and this crap is giving Rada a bad name.
Notes: If you need to do this, work from the **back** of the peeler and be careful because the peeler blade is sharp :)
I would give this a 5-star because it appears to be superbly well made, looks beautiful and is very functional, but took one star off for receiving it this way, with no clear instructions on how to assemble.
