FAM (Fact about Me) : I cannot use a regular potato peeler. I am a ra-tard when it comes to using a normal potato peeler. I cannot seem to apply the right amount of pressure without gouging the potato, thereby getting thick chunks of potato skin stuck between the blades. The only potato peeler I can successfully use is a 'palm peeler' that rests in the palm of the hand and held in place by a ring that slides over the middle finger.
FAM Disclaimer : This issue is long-standing, been going on for years, just sayin. ;-D
