Happy Left Handers Day

Today August 13th Is Left Handers Day, always making something easy, look twice as difficult. To all you lefties out here have a good day.

I am very left handed, my wife won’t let me peel potatoes, with a knife as it freaks her out. I hold the potato in my right hand next to my stomach and run the knife towards my stomach to peel it.

Doesn’t that prove that lefties are…? I can’t quite recall what lefties are. Thanks for the heads up. My Mom is a lefty and I think I will tease her about it. :thinking: :innocent:

Mate, seriously, whether right or left handed, cut away from your fingers, and any other bits that may get in the way.

Two words:

Palm. Peeler.

They are freaking AWESOME. Works for both my wife (righty) and for my janky hands (I’m a lefty as well, just with some nerve damage to boot) I know that most cooks are against gimmicky tools, but this one works! I did take the liberty of running ours across the small edge of a whet stone to sharpen the blade, but I’ve had to do that with every peeler we’ve ever owned. Which reminds me, I still need to order a new peeler!
