Pros: price, easy to use
All household in Japan has a similar peeler like this, but cost much less. I bought my peeler at a asian grocery store in San Francisco and paid about $1. (made with plastic so it's much cheaper) I've never used the ceramic one so I don't know if there's any difference in performance but I'm pretty happy with mine. I use this for peeling almost any veggies, potatos, cucumbers, carrots, etc. It's fast, efficient, easy to clean up/maintain and last forever.
