Product Description

A super sharp, hardened steel blade allows this vegetable peeler to outperform all others. Even when working with the hardest fruits and veggies, it will peel skin like a hot knife through butter. It works well on softer foods too so the Star makes the perfect all around fruit and vegetable peeler for any kitchen. You will be amazed at how effortlessly you are able to remove skin, and how much less time it will take you. That's because the razor sharp blade will glide right through at the perfect depth to remove wide swaths of skin in a single pass. Potatoes, carrots, apples and more can be peeled quickly and easily using this tool, and because it's a high quality device, it will stay sharp, and last for many years, even with heavy use. The STAR Peeler is the updated version of the REX, which is the original to feature this design, and both are still made in Switzerland, unlike most of the copy cats. Many others have tried to duplicate the design and performance, but as with most things, you can't beat the original. This one is proven to work better, and last longer than similar looking models.

Other Options

Want a tool that performs almost as well, but has a low maintenance blade? Then take a look at the Stainless Steel STAR. It won't be quite as sharp, but you can let it air dry without worry of surface rust forming. For a more economical choice, check out the original version called the REX Peeler. It has the same hardened steel blade, but the handle is made from aluminum instead of steel. For the same blade with a plastic handle, check out the Rapid Peeler by Zena. Looking for a tool with a specialized blade? Then check out the STAR Julienne Peeler or theSerrated Peeler . Want all three? Then check out the STAR Trilogy. It offers all three versions of this peeler in stainless steel. The regular one won't have the hardened steel blade like it does here, so make sure you want that version before ordering the set.

Why It's Good

  • Swiss Made. Unlike other "Swiss" kitchen gadgets that are no longer made there, this one still comes to us direct from Switzerland, not China.
  • Super Sharp. A high quality steel is hardened and blued. It is then finished off with a scalpel style finish with micro-serrations on the back side. Easily fly through any peeling job.
  • Ergonomic Grip. Comfortable for quick jobs or all day prep work, the curving frame provides the perfect grip. The wide handle is even good for those with arthritis and strength issues.
  • Heavy Duty. The stainless steel handle gives it a rugged frame that will not lose shape or bend. The strong material is commercial grade, and the attractive material will take tons of abuse without showing wear.
  • Stainless Cutter. An added loop on the side of the handle is the perfect little cutter to scoop out potato eyes and other perfections. It also doubles as a julienne blade to cut individual strips from carrots and other vegetables.
  • High Quality. Top of the line materials and superior manufacturing means that this peeler is much better than the look-a-likes. It's performance speaks for itself, and long lasting durability has caused many customers to use the same one for twenty years or more.
  • Dishwasher Safe. You will need to dry the blade afterward for best results, but the improved handle on this version makes it totally safe for cleaning in the dishwasher.

How To Use It

This incredible tool is widely used in professional kitchens because it's cut is smooth, and the peel is broad and thin. You will save time, and be left with little waste when you peel fruits and vegetables with this amazing device. It's not complicated to use, but follow the steps and suggestions that follow to ensure optimal use, and maximum longevity.
  1. Ideal for right or left handed use, prepare for use by holding the tool in your dominant hand, and the food you are peeling in your other hand.
  2. No pressure at all will peel skin from any fruit or vegetable, but if you do apply minimal pressure, it will slice thin slices of hard cheese, sweet potato, cucumber and more.
  3. To remove skin, press down slightly, and slide down the full length of your fruit or vegetable. Cut away from your body for the safest operation, but it works in either direction.
  4. There is a built in loop on the side that is perfect for removing imperfections from root vegetables, but it can also be used to quickly cut strips for julienne veggies or shoe string fries. Just press down and pull to remove long strips of a uniform thickness.
  5. Continue working until the entire skin is removed. A gentle touch and little effort will take off just the top layer, and increasing pressure will result in thicker pieces being removed.
  6. Once finished hand wash or place in the dishwasher for cleaning.
  7. After washing, dry the blade thoroughly to avoid surface rust.
  8. Oil the blade lightly with a vegetable oil to ensure a long life, and perfect performance.
The STAR Peeler is ideal for all types of peeling, slicing cheese, cutting vegetables into strips and more. It will become an integral part of your kitchen from the first time you use it. Designed to be used with only light downward pressure, it always cuts at the same, perfect thickness.

The Star Vegetable Peeler features superior construction and materials. It is made in Switzerland, using strong, commercial grade, stainless steel, and it's designed with an ambidextrous and ergonomic handle. A wide design with convenient curves make it easy to hold and operate. It's perfect for the elderly, those with arthritis, or anyone else that has trouble gripping one of those skinny traditional models. The blade is super sharp and able to pivot slightly in order to conform to the peeling surface. This means that it will move slightly to accommodate the roundness of the food you are peeling in order to precisely peel the same thickness all the way around. The blade is made from high quality hardened and blued steel, and will never go dull, so you never need to worry about sharpening it. Because the rest of this peeler is made from stainless steel, the Star is sharp, sturdy and dishwasher safe, just so long as you dry the blade before storage. Simply towel dry before placing it in the drawer to prevent rust and keep it working great forever.

Ideal for any kitchen, but especially useful for left handed chefs, or those with arthritis. Because of the wider design it's easy on the hands, and it can be used by left or right handed people, thanks to the shape and positioning of the blade. This is easily the best vegetable peeler you will ever use, and pretty much everyone that uses one, will no longer peel with anything else again afterwards. That's because it works so well, and sturdy construction keeps it looking great and performing even better for many years. The STAR won't loose sharpness over time, and will still peel just as good even after 10 or 20 years of use. At such an affordable price and low cost of shipping, this vegetable peeler is perfect for just about anyone.

Easily slice or peel any fruit or vegetable no matter how hard or soft they are. With this tool, you can even skin soft fruit without bruising or tearing it. For perfect coleslaw, cut a cabbage in half and run the peeler lightly over the ridges as they form to quickly make a pile of shreds. For finely cut onions, cut the onion in half, and run the peeler down the grain. This will result in a nice amount of finely diced onion pieces in a short amount of time. For wafer thin slices, simply apply a little pressure, and run it across the end of your vegetables. This will give you cucumber or carrot slices perfect for salads. Cut cheese for pizzas, salads and sandwiches by just holding the block with your fingers at either end and running the peeler from one end to the other. You will be left with thin, perfectly shaped slices of your favorite cheese without using a knife. Amazing versatility and ease of use make this vegetable peeler the pride of every kitchen drawer.

Does what it's designed to do, but it's pretty small for my old, arthritic hands — I'd suggest a larger size, and it would help a lot to coat the handle like my Felco® pruners so they don't slip when using them. Otherwise I'd give it a perfect ten.

I have owned my STAR peeler for 23 years now (yes, 23 years!!!) and used it for all of that time. I am only buying another because the original blade finally gave way last night. I hope my next STAR peeler lasts as long ... only, this time, I shall buy two and NEVER give the other away!

Looked this item up after seeing a profile of Joe Ades, the peeler-selling gentleman in NYC who became well-known for his style and success. Anyway, it's a great peeler. Worth the extra amount I paid. It seems clear it will provide much better service than the cheapos we usually grab.

potato peeler
This is my favorite peeler. Bought my first one about 40 yrs ago, still using it. I have bought SO many more, just to give to friends who have commented on mine. Recently bought another 4, and they were gone in a week. I volunteer in a couple of soup kitchens, and am able to do my work in less than half the time of my peers, which they all remark about, So I buy a few more peelers and give them to those that have asked. Your company was a pleasure to shop with, efficient, and a very prompt delivery! Thank you!

I think they are great and will probably last e as I am 84 and still cooking but just for me. I have told freinds about them. Thank you for writing me. SHirley Cofer101j52b66

I have arthritis and this peeler has made my life so much easier. I buy in bulk to give away. I always include one of these peelers in a bridal shower gift. With this peeler, it's easy to peel a tomato, a rutabaga, a butternut squash, as well as the less challenging vegetables such as carrots and potatoes.

Great peeler
as advertised, this is a really good peeler. Easy and comfortable to use and does the job consistently each time. I was surprised that after returning my first one due to rusty spots and discoloration on the blade and difficulty peeling, the second one also developed some small discolored spots after the first use. It has not interfered with performance, so I just dry it and put a bit of oil on the blade after using it.

Love These!!
About 10 years ago my mother-in-law bought us two star peelers as a gift when we opened our pizzeria. We use them several times every day (this is a restaurant). one day about two weeks ago, one of the peelers fell apart. We looked everywhere for a replacement. We couldn't find the star peeler, so we tried several different styles and shapes. Being very disappointed we found Simply good stuff. Hoorah we are now happy peelers.

Disappointed
Although it's easy to handle and works well, it rusted quickly. Washed it by hand after use, put it on a kitchen towel to dry after blotting it, and the blade rusted! My previous peeler was handled the same way for a few years--and it wasn't stainless steel either. I would not recommend this model. Having said that, I will try the stainless model next time.

Q
Is star peeler easy for 3 yr. old to use?
Asked by:  on 11/4/2013
A
Easy? Yes. Safe? Not so much. The blade is incredibly sharp, so it is certainly easy to work with, even with little strength, but for that same reason, you should use extreme caution with children that young.

I have an original ""Veggie Du-All"; must be 30 years old and beginning to show age. Is your product the successor or equal to the Veggie?
Asked by:  on 4/16/2015
A
When compared to other options that look the same or similar, this one will always perform better, and stay sharp longer. There have been many wanna-be's over the years, but the original is still the best. Give the STAR a chance, and you won't be disappointed.
