PROBLEM: When I peel vegetables (carrots, potatoes, butternut squash), I scrape or cut myself with the peeler (SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS).
QUESTION: How to hold and rotate the item so as to peel it safely (no scrapes) and securely (no slipping)?
DETAILS: 1--As I scrape forward or backward, the peeler catches the knuckles or pads of the fingers holding the veg.
2--As the veg gets thinner with peeling, it's hard to rotate it & scraping my fingers is more frequent.
3--When peeling a round or irregularly shaped item, I cannot always grip it tightly in my hand OR it slips while peeling on the countertop.
Thank you very much for your help!
