    Stupid Rosle Lefty peeler

    Somebody should tell Rosle that you peel away from you, not towards you, making their lefty peeler a righty, in my book! Damn $35 POS!!!!

    I should've just got the righty and used it the right way!

    Anyone else?

    I actually have seen a lot of people that peel toward themselves! It drives me nuts!
    Chris, PM me your addy, I've got a peeler that I can send you that only works if I peel towards myself, and I'm a righty.

    I peel towards myself. Kuhn rikon peeler. Unless the object is too floppy to hold itself stiff (insert joke) then I peel away. I find that I can turn the veg quicker w/ my left hand and pull towards myself with my right. I also believe that its easier following the natural curve of whatever veg by pulling towards yourself to avoid creating a cubist outcome.

    I didn't know peelers were directional/handed?? I use the rosle crosswise swivel one and peel vertically by pulling downward which I guess would be 'towards the user'

    I stand over a garbage and by peeling away from me, can actually shoot the peels directly in the trash. It's fast, and there is no way peeling up, could possible be faster.

    Yep I read a lot of reviews on Amazon to get the correct one. A left handed one for me, peel away from me with my right hand. Sounds like you're left handed and needed a right handed peeler.

    It is a phenomenal peeler.

    Well, I popped the blade off and flipped it. Will bring it back to work for a run tonight...

    Thanks for listening to my whining, lol.

    I was a huge Kyocera fan for years, but I broke them constantly; so I gave up. Went to OXO, Kuhn Rikon, etc...just haven't fallen in love with anything yet.
