Appealing peeling?

Just a curious observation. When I peel a carrot I peel the top half towards me then flip 180* and peel the bottom half towards me then top and tail. Short and quick. I peel a couple of kilos of carrots in a day at work and find I can zip through quite quickly this way.

While at work the other day I was watching a new lady peel the carrots, she peeled the whole carrot length ways away from her and I though watching her do this it looked awkward.

I’m a towards me peeler. My question is do you peel towards yourself or away from yourself?

Of course you can do your peeling in whatever way suits you and as I said just a curious observation.

      Interesting Jennifer. I hold the carrot in the palm of my hand when I peel and as I get ready for the next scrape I the palm the carrot around for the next go. Top half, bottom half.

    I don’t peel carrots, but when I peel potatoes, it’s towards me. The video clip was interesting.

      Kathleen I would think that putting the carrot end on the board/bench would not hold it secure enough to be peeled properly. I’m glad I’m not the only ‘toward me peeler’ lol
