- Single-handed or stationery
peelers come with suction cups to hold them firmly in
place as you peel vegetables or fruits. Some models come
with large grips, non-slip handles, and/or sharp swivel
blades. They can be used with a stationary cutting board.
Available at MaxiAids and in most other catalogs.
- Stationary cutting boards
aid cooks with attaching aluminum prongs to stabilize food
fwhile cutting. Some models have suction cups on the bottom
to keep boards in place, and corner guards to prevent food
from slipping off.
- A roller knife has a round
blade just like a pizza cutter. Both the E-Z Grip Knife
and Be-OK Knife are great for single-handed
use with a back-and-forth rocking motion. (Only use electric
knives if you know you can handle them.). See Kitchen

side-guards to prevent food slippage.
