There are a lot of lousy peelers out there — ones with dull blades and narrow openings that inevitably get clogged up with peels. Peelers are so often disappointing, you may decide to chuck them all together and use your trusty paring knife for all your peeling needs.
But before you do that, check out these peelers from Kuhn Rikon. We're not exaggerating when we say that these are the best peelers you'll ever own.

What makes them so great? The super-sharp blades make quick work of whatever job you're doing (peeling that bushel of U-Pick apples you got this weekend and are now turning into apple pie, for example), and the wider spacing between the blades ensures peels won't get gunked up in the process. You'll love these peelers so much that you might even volunteer to peel the potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner. Seriously.
