The design of this Y-shaped vegetable peeler allows you to peel in a simple top-to-bottom direction while offering a wider handle over straight-shaped peelers for a better hold. A lot of people prefer the Y peeler vs. swivel peeler for that reason. This also makes a Y peeler ideal for use with large or particularly tough vegetables like eggplants and sweet potatoes, and for easily cutting ribbons from long vegetables like carrots and cucumbers. The soft, FirmGrip handle is easy for big and small hands to grip and maneuver, and the durable stainless steel blade keeps its sharp edge even after years of use. Dishwasher safe, the Y peeler measures 5.75" x 2.75" x 1.25" and comes in a pack of 12.
