3.0 out of 5 stars Why go Y?, August 8, 2000
This review is from: OXO Good Grips Y Peeler (Kitchen)
The design is different, which may be a nice option for some... But I found it more awkward than the traditional design as my hands kept getting in the way of what I was doing.
Also, the tip on the edge is really inadequate for de-eye-ing potatoes or cutting out bad spots.
Cut the food, not your own hands: If all I ever peeled were carrots, I might be happy with the Y. But overall I prefer the OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler and will use it for apples, potatoes and everything else. It's the traditional knife-style model but with the ergonomic padding.

A Y-peeler is absolutely necessary for peeling acorn and butternut squash. There is a need for more than one kind of peeler in a well-equipped kitchen.

I Completely Agree! I keep cutting my hand. I think the Y is good for large/ long veggies, but round/small things like apples, its impossible to hold the produce without your hand getting in the way of the peeler. I'm so frustrated with getting cuts on my hands.
