What is this?

Black hand peeler in packaging that reads: “OXO / GOOD GRIPS / SWIVEL PEELER”. Peeler with syntetic rubber handle with grip consisting of horizontal striations, hole at bottom; swivelling stainless steel blade covered by clear plastic.

Why is this in our collection?

Sam Farber founded OXO to create kitchen tools for people of diverse ages and abilities. His wife, Betsey, suffers from arthritis, and it was painful for her to peel vegetables. OXO partnered with Smart Design to create the Good Grips brand. The designers explored dozens of prototypes, including a rubber bicycle handle. Improving access for disabled users can improve the experience for those of ordinary ability.

This is a peeler in packaging from United States. It is dated 2011 and we acquired it in 2011. Gift of Smart Design, Inc..
