The blade is still sharp and peeling is as easy as the first day I used it for dinner potatoes. I hold the veggie down, whether it is hard to peel sweet potato or easy peel zucchini, and slice down always making sure my fingers stay out of the way.
No extra pressure is needed for getting clean fast work completed.
This duo pack comes with the julienne slicer, as well. I do not go for fancy presentations, but I have used the julienne look many times since I have this in the drawer. I have used the thin slices of carrots in salads, Mexican red rice, sandwiches and soup. Cucumber is another veggie that is good julienne in salads and sandwiches. Use this tool for paring only a portion of the vegetable on the outside for decorative effect.
These suggestions I now use weekly because it is so easy with the Titan and I do not have to clean a processor when done, just put the stainless steel tool in the dish washer.
I have both peelers in the travel trailer, and my husband will always say okay if I ask him to help with the mashed potatoes.
