oxo peeler great for peaches

I usually dip my peaches in boiling water, in order to skin them more easily for freezing. It wasn't working very well this year, and I hate heating the kitchen up like that. So I got out my handy-dandy oxo peeler, and it peels the un-dipped peaches sooooo easily. It just takes off a paper-thin amout of skin.
I don't know why I didn't think of this years ago.........but I didn't have an oxo peeler then. It is very sharp and I have the scars to prove it. haha
But its nice to not have to dip the peaches any more. And it goes so much more easily than with a paring knife.

They work good on a tomato too it you just want to peel a few without heating up a pot of water.

catherine,

Thanks for the tip!

The hot-water dip wasn't working for me very well this year either --- works better on some varieties than others. I don't have an Oxo but I have a pretty good peeler my sister gave me and I tried it in desperation; it did a much better job than I expected. I think I'll invest in an Oxo for next year! I prefer the hot-water dip but it's good to have options....

I'll have to try it on tomatoes too.
Another tip.....it works great at cutting fingers too.....so be careful!
I usually try to buy utensils that don't have alot of extra stuff on them (for environmental reasons), but since I've developed alot of arthritis in my hands, the extra stuff on handles really helps now.
Now, if I could just freeze peaches and tomatoes by just looking at them, I'd really be in business! :)

catherinenet,

Do you use the Y-shape type or the stick-shape type?

I used a ceramic blade peeler and found its works great on everything from carrots to peaches. It's a Y shaped also.

I have one of each, and tend to use the stick one more often.

I have a couple of OXO peelers. One of them has a serrated blade and does an amazing job peeling peaches.

I went down to Target today and they have 3 OXO PEELERS. one is regular. one is perpendicular Y shape or T shape, and one is called serrated blade for soft fruit and soft veggies like tomatoes and peaches.

Which have people been using?

Who makes the one with the ceramic blade? or where to buy it? or both.

There was a little article about testing peelers in the new _Canadian Living_ issue. They recommended one with a really sharp serrated blade for peeling tomatoes and peaches---the brand they mentioned wasn't OXO but it looked just like the serrated-blade OXO does. I'm gonna get me one of those in one brand or another!

This is my trusted peeler . It is good in peeling tuber and fruits.
