sharp peeler
This peeler is very sharp and easy to use. I like it a lot, but someone with large hands might find it a bit small.

Love the peeler, stay sharp and easy to peel.
I've been using the peeler for at least over a year, it still very sharp and very easy to peel, better than the stainless steel one I have. Love it! After use, I hand wash it and air dry it. Always avoid touching the wet blades with other objects while drying, otherwise it will show rusts easily (maybe it's best to dry it with a towel right away). I gave one to a friend, she threw it away after seeing the rust. I didn't realize that'd be an issue for some people.

dudley p on Feb 19, 2019
These peelers are so much better than anything else on market — and I’ve tried most others. They are just easier to manipulate and very effective . And since they are priced so reasonably, when they need replacing (maybe every 5 years), they’re affordable

Absolutely amazing peeler: can actually skin a piece of ginger: never before has it been this easy and leave ginger whole without the skin. Best purchase ever!

I have an old one that is rusted. I love it for making ribbon salad. Does a beautiful job and costs much less than a ribbon attachment on the Mixer. Hope these work as well as my old one.

I received this peeler as a gift and I can't imagine using any other peeler. It is one of the best gifts I have ever received. There isn't any other peeler that can compare to it. I look forward to "peeling" anything now.

dudley p on Feb 19, 2019
I need a peeler strong enough to peel spaghetti , butter nut and other type of hard shell squashes. Would this one do? or is there a better one ?
Genevieve E on Sep 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Peelers are designed for specific tasks. The small Kuhn-Rikon peelers are designed for, and perform well on, small thin-skinned fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, potatoes, and zucchini. I urge Genevieve to shop for a peeler specifically described as a "Squash Peeler" to peel large hard-shelled dense-fiber fruits. Squash peelers are sturdy and have sharp heavy-duty blades that stand up to thick skins. And, incidentally, shop for peelers with stainless steel blades. Blades made of other materials tend to snap, corrode, or rust. Also an assortment of sharp, sturdy chef's knives can usually do a good job of peeling and slicing squash.
Can you get rid of the rust on the blade?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My peelers haven't rusted, but then I dry them with a clean kitchen towel as soon as I wash them. And I never soak them. In my experience, rust, unless it has penetrated deep into a blade, is fairly easy to get rid of. I would rub the blade with a pad of fine steel wool, and then hand wash and hand dry the peeler. In my experience, sharp blades require TLC to retain their edges.
What is the round hole on the side for? Seems like there must be some reason for it to be there...
A shopper on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe it is to scoop out a small chunk of potato, like a potato bud or blemish; or if there is a dimple in the potato that the flat blade just goes over and doesn't remove a bit of peel, you can then scoop it out.
How many peelers coming by packet?
Angel Roman R on Aug 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: One.
sharpening Kuhn Rikon Original Swiss Peeler

A reviewer claimed that it is possible to sharpen this product. How?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2012
BEST ANSWER: There are many different methods out there for sharpening your vegetable peelers. The most common one I have found is using a paring knife. You can also use a sharpening stone or file.
