I use one of these for peeling fruit and veggies, the blade stays sharp and the grip is sort of cushioned and rubbery, which I fond comfortable to hold. It's tough enough to get thru the skin of a butternut squash fairly easily :clap: :clap:

There was a thread at the end of last year about an electric peeler another member had bought and found really good. It was called the Rotato Express. Hope it makes a difference to you :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Hey Mand

I have that problem too. I got a kettle tipper and foam ends for cutlery from Occupational Health. They are definately useful. I use the electric can opener too. You can buy knives that rock for people with bad hands. I can't be bothered with them but others may like them. If you google some of the mobility shops you can get stuff for hands there. Or as sum of the others I try to buy chopped veg and baby potatoes or ask my hubby to cut and peel things and leave them in water for me. Its the lifting saucepans and draining them that also gets me when my hubby is home late.

Hope thats sum help to u.

Kitty

Hi all

I picked up a peeler the other week, i was in the queue at Matalan and saw it in one of the baskets.

It dosent have a handle, it slips over your finger like a ring and the peeler bit sits in your palm, there is a squarish shield in between your palm and the blade.

Its pretty easy to use and also quite painless, because you dont grip it as such it prevents the painful finger locking. I did get a bit too confident with it and peeled my thumb knuckle one time :shock: , and the peel tends to get a bit clogged up behind the blade, but all in all , for only £1 not a bad investment :clap:

It sounds like a good buy :clap: Trying to peel knuckles and thumbs and fingers is my downfall as well :facepalm: :facepalm: You'd think we'd not do it after the first or second time, but I keep going back and trying it........and it hurts just as much with every try :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout:

Or of course the other option is to live on toast like I do. No peeling or chopping required lol.
