I need some advice on a good peeler for the store. Anyone have some suggestions? They need to appeal to pro cooks. They are the guys that usually buy them.

I'm not a pro but check out the Kyocera CP-20 RD Perfect Peeler. I completely swear by this thing.

- I'm on my second year using the replaceable ceramic blade. Haven't needed to replace it. Screamingly sharp. Don't know if ceramic would be an issue. for pros though.
- Have dropped it. kicked it. Stepped on it. Haven't had it thrown at me yet but it has my full confidence it would survive.
- Favorite feature: It rotates from a Y peeler to a stick peeler. Best of both worlds on a single peeler.

Easily one of my favorite kitchen tools.

The Kuhn Rikon Y peeler is all I see. They're cheap, durable, and last a long time. My current peeler is going strong after a year of brisk use. No offense to the Kyocera, but I would expect that head to break off pretty much instantly. I would be interested in a ceramic blade, though.

+1 Kuhn Rikon peeler. It is by far the best peeler I've used. Comparing a Kuhn Rikon to a standard peeler is like the difference between going from a mediocre German knife to a good Japanese knife.

Kuhn Rikon swiss peeler. Beast mode.
Cheap and highly effective. Carbon steel blade, when it gets dull toss it and get a new one. Everyone should keep a box full!

Victorinox also has a "Y" peeler, but I think the Rikon kicks its butt.

No offense taken.... All I can say is: at less than $15 try it baby! :mrgreen:

Seriously, I don't know what goes on in the back of the house so I'm certainly no expet but I can't imagine how this head would pop off unless someone was trying... and maybe not then.

Rikons are dirt cheap at 3 for $10, carbon steel too I believe ;)
Rosle's Y-peeler is awesome as well.

I have a three-piece set of SwissMar y-peelers similar to the K-R, but with three different cutters: plain, serrated and julienne. I have used them for 3+ years and they are sharp, easy to keep clean and do a great job.
Also make a great stocking-stuffer for aspiring cooks.

I'm with Dan. Kuhn Rikon Swiss peelers work well enough, and I never have any qualms tossing one out and getting another.
