Easier Grip Makes Mundane Tasks More Pleasant

By 

from Williston, VT

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

I purchased this brand to have on hand for an elderly relative who has increasing osteoarthritis of her hands. She has always enjoyed making dishes from raw fresh vegetables and I did not want to see her stuck with just canned or frozen veggies. As we prep, I find the oxo peeler pleasant to use. It works well on up-down peels like for cucumbers. With practice, determination, and inspiration, you can create creative designs as you peel the fresh produce. Always be mindful that the blade is sharp and knife/cutter safety rules should be followed.

Ease of Cleaning
No peeler is super easy to clean. I just rinse well as I do not want a cut from the sharp blade.

Durability
Seems to last. Some cheaper peelers seem to be defeated by raw carrots, squash or potatoes, but the Oxo is fine. I have never seen one break with moderate, home kitchen use. If I have to work with alot of veggies with peels, I usually bake for a bit to loosen the skin, then scrape it off. Even with the best tool, excessive peeling can cause hand cramps.

Design
An option to have on hand as an alternative to traditional hand peelers. Not always appropriate. I cannot really make it work on apples, but that may be because since childhood I have used the standard peeler for this fruit.

Easy to use and saves time!

By 

from Winchendon, MA

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

I was so tired of cutting vegetables by hand for recipes that called for julienned veggies. This great little peeler works well and saves me time (and nicked fingers). It slices evenly and quickly and makes short work of anything I use it for, I'd definitely recommend it!

My Favorite Of All Of Our Julienne Peelers- COMFORTABLE Handle

By 

from Podunk, NY

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

One of the most interesting gizmos that we added to our collection of kitchen gadgets has been the OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler. The Julienne Peeler has a large black easy to grip handle. The blade instead of being like a potato peeler has a blade which has a divided blade edge on it as well makes it so that when you peel the vegetable (such as carrot or cucumber for instance) the result is that you get julienne cut strips which are quick to use on salads or in stir fries.

Ease of Cleaning
Although you have to be careful around the sharp edges of the blade, it is easy enough to clean off the blades if you run them under a quick stream of water, immediately after using. If you wait until the pieces dry on the blades, it will be too difficult to clean well. The handle cleans well and does not get any problems with caked on food.

Durability
We have had our Julienne Peeler from Good Grips for several years now, use it quite often and it still is going strong. The blades are still sharp and the hinge is strong. The handle is still comfortable too.

Design
We have several julienne peelers from different companies, and the one I reach for most often is the Good Grips. The handle is so much more comfortable to use, especially if I plan to do a lot of strips. I really like the way that the blades are designed and the handle is so much more easy to hold and comfortable than the others are.

Hard to believe that one could be passionate about a peeler!

By 

from Laurel, MS

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

I can't believe of all the things in my kitchen, this is the one that impresses me the most. The XO Good Grips peeler is the best gadget I have ever owned. Unlike traditional peelers, this one glides easily, does not shift or catch, and stays sharp. I have never even come close to cutting a knuckle with this peeler and do not have to "fight" with it to keep it going. It doesn't clog up and makes the job so much easier. It is slightly pricier than more inexpensive peelers but this is one situation where the couple of bucks is well spent.

Peeling is appealing once again!

By 

from Fullerton, CA

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

I remember being a kid and hating to peel vegetables for my mom growing up. the peeler in our house was metal and rusty and the handle was incredible small and had rough edges. Not to mention, the blade was anything but sharp. It didn't peel, but rather grated! This peeler on the other hand is a dream come true. It's so smooth and easy to handle (left and right-handed members in my family can equally use it with no problem). I think OXO makes great quality products that last and that's why i always resort to the brand when it comes to kitchen appliances and utensils. It's not too expensive and is extremely sturdy. After more than a hundred uses (and I peel a lot of veggies and fruits in my house), it's still like new. I also really like the different shape to the peeler. The wide blade makes peeling quicker and anything that saves time is a plus for my family since I cook very frequently with these ingredients.

OXO Julienne Peeler is irreplaceable!

By 

from Coalgate, OK

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

I have many kitchen gadgets as I am a self professed kitchen gadget queen. But out of all the kitchen gadgets I own there are two I can't live without, and one of them is the OXO Julienne Peeler. It has a easy grip comfort handle that makes it easy to control without having to make your knuckles turn white. The angel is great and feel natural while you peel. The blades are sharp enough to get the job done but not so sharp that it will cut off a finger if you accidental get carried away and slip. My favorite thing about the OXO Julienne Peeler is that it also Juliennes and makes vegetable ribbons. We have adopted a healthier lifestyle and have started replacing pasta with sauteed vegetable ribbons, and my kids love it. It was so hard to get a thin ribbon with just slicing with a regular knife, so you can imagine how delighted I was when the OXO made perfect ribbons. The clean up of the OXO Julienne Peeler is a breeze. I just swish mine through some warm soapy water, rinse and then dry well. I have seen no rusting or denting on the blades at all. I definitely recommend this tool.

The OXO Julienne Peeler is a great multi use kitchen tool!

By 

from Miami, FL

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

The OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler is an amazing kitchen tool.  I've been using a grater to try to make my julienne vegetables and hash browns (not very effective) until I found this handy peeler.  It works on hard vegetables like carrots and butternut squash as well as soft one's like cucumber and zuchinni.  I did have some trouble when I was getting to the end of the vegetables so I found that it works better if you keep turning them as you peel.  I made some zuchinni and yellow squash and they turned out like spaghetti so we put some sauce on them and made some low carb "spaghetti" that way.

I recommend that this tool NOT be put in a drawer as it has really sharp points that stick out but it does have a place where you can hang it so it doesn't cause harm. 

I've been using this regularly for a few months and the blade is just as sharp as the day I bought it.  I highly recommend this great tool!

Works great!

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

We have had the oxo good grips peeler for the last five years. We registered for this when we were getting married and got it as a shower gift. We use it pretty regularily and have had no problem. It is just as sharp as the day we got it. We use it for all sorts of fruit and vegatable. I like that it has a wide grip handle it makes me feel like I have more control when I am peeling. I am happy with it! I would definately recommend the oxo good grips peeler.  I have several oxo good grips products and think they are excellent products that are made to last. I feel secure with it unlike my other peeler in which I have cut my hand several times. Also, this peeler can be put in the dishwasher which makes cleanup a breeze. I am happy with it and think it is a great product. It is fun to use and enjoy dinners when we need to use it. Sometimes I just make a salad look pretty to use it on carrotts or cucumbers!

OXO has done it again: OXO makes it easier to serve vegetables

By 

from Big Island, VA

Comments about OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler:

Who would have ever thought this lady could be so gaga over kitchen gadgets?  Sometimes I just don't know that I need a kitchen tool until OXO makes it.  I have several OXO kitchen gadgets and during the summer when the vegetable harvest in coming in, this OXO good grips vegetable peeler is a favorite.

**Why I like the OXO good grips julienne peeler:**

Like all OXO products, it has a comfortable, no-slip grip handle and just the right angle.

The handle is fat and fits your hand well so you don't feel so hand fatigued even after long use.

It's safe.  In a flurry or a hurry, even with little helpers, the blade does the job on vegetables with no boo boos.

It is durable and we have certainly put that to the test with using and washing over and over.

While I am still storing mine in my ever growing kitchen gadget drawer, it has a hole that would also make it easy for hanging in an organized kitchen.

**How do I use the OXO good grips julienne peeler:**

Foremost I use it for peeling whether it is carrots, potatoes or cucumbers.  I used to slice cucumbers and everyone was happy but once we started growing our own, we learned that our home grown cucumbers had a better flavor but tougher skins.  The dinner table audience demanded the skins removed and the OXO peeler makes that job easy enough.

You can also use this OXO peeler to julienne vegetables like squash or zuchinni to add to salads or stir fry.  It adds a nice texture and eye appeal sure, but the bonus if you're serving kids is that the julienned vegetables seem less overwhelming (translation: they are more likely to eat them) than traditional slices.

***My Viewpoint:***  OXO good grips is a kitchen gadget for gardeners or vegetable lovers.  Whether you're peeling or going Julienne, it makes light of the work.
