A few weeks ago there was a story on 60 minutes about a guy that sold peelers on the streets of New York City for $5 ea.Not many people thought he could make much of a living doing that but 60 minutes showed he sold thousands of them and lived in an upscale apartment building.He died but now his daughter is selling them on the street.
Anyway I bought one regular star peeler and one that juliennes from http://www.simplygoodstuff.com/star_peeler.html
for about $13 for both, free shipping.
This thing peels kiwi & butternut squash with ease.You can use the handle for removing seeds from zuccini/cucumber and a little thing on the side for removing potato eyes.I love this peeler.
Also here is a recipe for healthy Raw Shaved Asparagus salad that will work with any sharp peeler.

    That guy was a hell of a salesman, that is forsure. There are a few videos of him, hawking his peelers.

    I actually had a few of these, and like them. I just bought 4 for my grandmother on ebay for 9.99. She likes them, as they are easy on her hands.

    Interesting guy. Here's the vid from Today's American Story. Dude lived on PARK AVE!! Nice place. :) Selling $5 peelers!!

    The guy doing the interview asked him if he ever took a vacation. He said, "Life is a vacation." We should all be so fortunate.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Thanks Jon. Looks like the old style peelers I grew up with but with some accessories added.
