Go for one with a ceramic blade! An employee at a big fancy kitchen store talked me out of a more expensive metal model. After years of weekly abuse (and trips through the dishwasher), the ceramic blade is still super sharp and effective. Ours looks like the Kyocera Y peeler:

I followed the proportions exactly (using all un-salted nuts and grains) and found this WAY too salty. I'm normally a sweet/salty lover, but this was just too much. Next time I'll start with 1/2 t. Kosher salt. The recipe is perfect, otherwise!

I've been slowly upgrading to the velvet ones, too. I just found nice ones at Costco and got 35 hangers for $10. Definitely worth the price! They save a ton of space, have a more natural shape than plastic ones (so shirts don't get funny pointed shoulders), and they grip every type of fabric (so they work with everything from slinky tanks to heavy sweaters and jeans, and clothes don't slip off).

These are a fantastic, quick side/dipper for homemade soups. All of the ingredients are simple pantry items, so I frequently whip-up a batch while my soup is simmering. I do reduce the salt to ~1/2 t. coarse Kosher, but otherwise, they are perfection.
