Closeouts. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone to whom Endurance's Select-a-Peel Vegetable peeler would not appeal! Encompassing three blade styles and a built-in metal thumbnail for seed and eye removal, it's a truly indispensable prep tool.

This utensil is an absolute menace! It suffers from a basic design flaw: the smooth-edged blade only works one way for right-handers: away from the user. For long items like carrots or parsnips, that's fine. But for small round veggies like turnips and little potatoes, it is **way** too easy to slice into one's fingertips--which I have just now done, twice, in a matter of minutes. (And in all my years of cooking I have never cut myself with a peeler before.) Peeling **toward** the user is the only safe way to peel small round vegetables. Just watch chefs on TV: you will never ever see them peeling small round vegetables away from themselves.
And you will never see me using this peeler again. I have tossed it in the trash.

Cool gaget. I don't know if you can sharpen it though, so I suppose it will have to be thrown away once it is dull. I do use all three peeling styles and the kids noticed the rigges on the fruit and liked it. works great. recommended.

Nice & sharp' the 3 different peeling positions are quite useful. Too bad it is so difficult for a left handed person to use. But I've been adapting to a right handed world for decades - so what's new?

This is a sharp and versatile peeler, as others here have stated, no complaints about that. But - this peeler has a limitation that no other peeler I have had in the past has ever had: The smooth blade is only one-sided, i.e. there is no blade on the other side. All the serrated options are double-sided, just the smooth one isn't.
This means that as a left-handed person, I can only peel a let's say carrot, cucumber, zucchini etc. by moving the peeler toward me. Normally I would peel such a vegetable by moving the peeler away from me. It should be equally awkward to use for a right-handed person when peeling an apple in a circular fashion because then the blade would have to be used in a counter-clockwise motion instead of the more natural clockwise motion. Very strange...
Despite the great versatility and sharpness, I can not give this more than 3 stars due to this oversight.

Having a very elaborate knife set, I did not want to spend $25 on something which had a substitute in my kitchen. When I saw this on Sierra for ~$10 I knew I had to get. The peeler is well-made. It looks great, and the color adds a great touch. It works well on hard vegetables (carrots, potatoes), and the blades are very sharp.
