I need a better potato peeler

I find them so hard to use. This one peels carrots OK but is narrow so leaves a gauge when doing a big potato. AIBU to ask for recommendations for the ultimate veg peeler or is this as good as it gets?

We bought a Jamie Oliver one for a few pounds years ago and it's still by far the best one ever. It's not the stick-shaped on though, which I can't get on with at all.

a knife with a curved edge?

You can peel butternut squash?! Mind blown. Beet attacking those bad boys with knives for years!

Oxo Goodgrips is brilliant - we've had it ages and it's still really sharp.

Oxo good grips.

Good taste mumofone!

Definitely a y shaped peeler, we have the oxo good grips too. I can't use knife or sick ones.

I agree about Lakeland one, they're about £1.50 I think, I've got about 3 because I tend to throw them away with the peelings. Yes you can peel butternut squash, much easier then using a knife.

Another vote for the Oxo good grips peeler!

Another vote for Oxo good grips. I've moved abroad a couple of times and taken one with me because they're so good!

Yep we have an oxo good grip. It handles butternut squash

I have an orange one in the shape of a chicken which is genuinely the best peeler in the world. I've had it for years and if it ever breaks I will be distraught. Sadly can't remember where it came from!

Is your potato peeler controlling in other ways?

I have honestly never used a potato peeler in my life! I just use a small sharp knife.

I like Lancashire peelers the best.

Oxo good grips. Last for years too!

Invade you haven't got the message yet- oxo good grips.

ninnando Wed 27-Sep-17 19:48:08

Oxo here too.

Another vote for Lakeland!

I love my oxo too

Oxo good grips here too!

Friends of ours had a long-handled peeler they could use easily (had grip problems) for many years, eventually it broke. They couldn't replace with the same and asked if we knew where to get similar from. We didn't, but recommended the Oxo one. They were reluctant to buy one as thought they needed a longer one for their grip problems. We thought they were so good we just bought them one, saying it won't go to waste if they don't like it as we would have it back and they could find a different one. Needless to say, they kept it!
