Table Talk » I'm a Y-peeler person
On Tuesday, I went to use my trusty Y-peeler to peel some potatoes and it was broken. I'm not sure what happened to it, but it wouldn't peel. My gear gets banged around and I've been treating it harshly for 5 years, so it's no wonder it broke. I rummaged through my client's utensil drawer and found a red Zyliss swivel-peeler. It had nice serrated teeth on the peeling blade. But I'm so used to a Y-peeler, that I had a lot of trouble peeling my potatoes. It took me twice as long to peel the potatoes. I made a mental note to put my broken peeler in my clipboard case so that I would find it when I emptied my case at home and I could grab another one from my stash of them. Yes, I have a stash of them. Of course I forgot to do that and on Wednesday when I needed to peel carrots, I found the broken Y-peeler in my utensil box. I immediately put my broken peeler in my clipboard case. Wednesday's client had a Oxo swivel peeler, which I struggled with to get two pounds of carrots peeled. I decided that there are two types of peelers and I'm a Y-peeler through and through.

Without a doubt, I'm a Y-Peeler person. But don't buy the three pack at Williams-Sonoma. They rust out after one use! Good to know I'm in good company. :)
I am also a Y-peeler person! I have OXO's- comfy handles- with replacement blades> New blades come three to a pack. Trying to use a regular peeler now is like speaking Greek to me!
