You Aren’t Still Using An Old School Vegetable Peeler Are You? Y-Shaped Peelers Win.
Good lord, you aren’t still using one of those old-fashioned vegetable peelers where the blade is in the same line as the handle, are you? The motion and control with these Y-shaped peelers is so much more efficient, you’ll be peeling your carrots and potatoes twice as fast. I like the minimalist Kuhn Rikon peelers, but if you want a more ergonomic handle, the OXO peelers are nice too. Whichever one you get, don’t put it in the dishwasher – it will stay sharp a lot longer if you wash it by hand.
