I buy the best for my kitchen and this clearly has no place.

I guess you get what you pay for. No, it is not a lot of money but somehow with all the positive reviews, I had hoped for more. Do not think you will peel potatoes unless they are medium and round and even then I find the peeler too aggressive and a real pain to use. The overall quality is disappointing. I buy the best for my kitchen and this clearly has no place in it. The prong that holds the apple or potato did not even screw down on the shaft so that it would align with any sort of precision. The alignment was probably good enough to have worked but was one indication that this tool is mass produced junk. And there appears to be no practical way to adjust the spring strength on the peeling arm. I would pay good money to have someone design and build a quality peeler. At this point I will gladly hand peel potatoes and return this peeler. Maybe it would work for apples, I can't say but even so it is too crude for my taste.
