Now I can eat oranges”
These are great for eating oranges at work or anywhere where you don't want to whip out a sharp knife. I did laugh at the other reviews before buying, because people said they were easy to lose and I thought that's not really a problem with the product... But they really are easy to lose! They slip though the gaps in the dish rack or get thrown out with the peel. I can see me having to buy a few more packs, or maybe tying them to my desk! Great product, buying oranges is so much cheaper and tastier than buying easy peeler citrus.

I purchased these to save my nails. They are brilliant, oranges peeled in seconds, hands not so sticky and no more split nails.

Just love this little gizmo small and yet it does just what it says on the tin. Peeling an orange no longer leaves me with pith and peel under my thumb nail! Thank you lakeland .

A handbag essential...........”
I keep buying these for my friends as it makes eating oranges so easy. What I like about this product is that the juice from the orange does not splatter you because of its shape as you use its 'blade' and it's handy size for your handbag.

A note from the team: Thank for placing your review. We're pleased your happy with the peeler.
Really good product. I have two and my one never went orange. The best time to peel the skin is when it's warm, then it eaiser for me at least. I have problems with gripping etc.

As Lakeland say, simple but effective! I keep it with the oranges/in fruit bowl, that way it doesn't get lost.

This product is brilliant for peeling hard boiled eggs! I've been using them for years but only just realised how versatile they can be.

Saviour to my nails!”
by Mrs Robinson
Finally I can eat oranges again!!! These are great little devices, I have psoriasis which affects my nails and makes them very soft and I have been unable to peel oranges for ages but now I can eat them again without hurting myself or having to ask my hubby to peel them. Thank you Lakeland!

Loved this product, good value and works. I normally can't be bothered peeling oranges because they are always so messy, but this product makes it so much easier.

Great stuff!! No more having to bite into the orange skin or get it under your nails to get it started, it's small enough to keep one in your bag too.

Lost in the compost”
by Ms Sharp
Excellent. Makes peeling oanges so much easier. Unfortunately mine were coloured orange and have probably ended up in the compost bin. I expect they'll resurface one day but meanwhile I'll have to buy more.

Great. Easy on the fingers”
Love oranges, but having to start peeling by biting into the bitter skin, then struggling with fingers which if lucking the skin comes off in large pieces. More often than not, little bits come off and its like starting again. Then found this simple device, which works so easily and so now will be eating more oranges.

I use this a lot. I use it to score lines which I can get my fingers under easily.

This small gadget is brilliant, Once the orange has been scored with the peeler, the peel can be removed very easily, like magic.

I can eat oranges again!”
Accepted these peelers don't remove the white pith. However, somehow, if you score the skin into quarters with this, they make an orange much easier to peel than if you score it with a knife. They also make it less painfull for me, because peel doesn't get jammed under my nails as it lifts the edges. Fantastic!

Leaves white stuff on”
by Miss Baker
I don't really understand this! It cuts through the skin great, but still leaves all of the white stuff on the orange. I don't eat this bit so have to spend ages after pealing the orange to get all this off. If you don't mind the white stuff it would be okay I guess.

A note from the team: Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I'm sorry your found the peeler unsatisfactory. We'll be in touch to arrange a refund.
This item is brilliant - saves the nails! I have bought several in the past, but they were orange in colour, and kept getting thrown out with the peel, so I', delighted to see that they are now green!!!!
