You all know me, so this is not a blatant advertisement; I just wouldn’t do it and I just bought 10 of them for my self. The cheapest I found on line was like $5-6 bucks, this is dirt cheap, but you'll have to buy a bunch to get the benefit of the price, they kind of get you on the price of shipping. Here is the link:

I've got a couple of those. I got them at one of the outlet stores in North Georgia. They work great. I've been wondering about the Titan Peeler they advertise on TV. Has anyone tried that one?

I have the Messermeister Swivel Peeler Messermeister Swivel Peeler, which, along with the Oxo, was top-rated by Cook's Illustrated in November 2007. Works extremely well, which is all I care about -- price be damned! And it's only $6.95 from Amazon.

Hey Charlie, I got one of those from Williams Sonoma, works great. I like the small size...and price. They also sell these great cheapo paring knives.

http://www.williams-sonoma.com/produ...ility%2Dknives

The store near me sells them seperate for $5 (or so) a piece. Great blade, pretty sharp too. I plan on getting a few more to keep on the RV.

More colors...KEWL: http://www.kuhnrikon.com/products/to...ls.php3?id=210

I've been thinking of a new peeler recently. The one I use now, which is probably a no-name that I've had forever, all of a sudden keeps clogging up with potato peels.

Charlie, are you selling any of the 10 you bought?
If not this thread should be moved to the Tools of the trade forum.
I'll leave it here in the pay if forward / classified forums until we hear back from you on this.

We hardly peel the skin off of any vegetable anymore. We simply scrub the dirt off and go from there. None of our friends or family have ever even commented about mashed taters with the skins still on. Seems like lots of folks are doing the same once they learn about the valuable nutrients and fiber in potato skins.

I love potato skins on anything but mashed. My mashed potatoes have to be smooth and white as the virgin snow. And I use the peeler on whole carrots, too. I like the texture of the carrot better than scraping it with a knife and my chickens like the peels :^)

Amazon has the Kuhn Rikon peeler, too. Price is $3.49, but if you buy 4, you pay for only 3; no tax and you get free shipping if you buy $25 worth of stuff. That gives you 12 of them for $31.41, delivered. The other site wants $38.83 for 12 delivered.

Of course, you might find some other items to get you over the $25 hump without having to buy a lifetime supply of peelers.

Here's the link:
