"Watch your fingers!!"
14 January 2010
I recently bought this product after seeing one on a shopping channel and it is fabulous. I used to have a similar plastic one that needed a lot of pressure applied to peel potatoes. The first time I used this I applied the same pressure and nearly sliced my fingers off. It only needs holding very gently as it is so sharp and the peel just seems to glide off, whatever you are peeling. I have peeled 2 very soft pears with it and was amazed at how easily it did it. I do however seem to have a problem with the mandoline - I cannot seem to get slices as the blade does not seem to come above the mandoline. I just end up with mush and not slices, no matter what I try to slice. I have grazed my fingers trying. My husband has also tried without success and told me to take it back to the store but there is no way I am letting go of this peeler.
