Am I the only one who thinks oranges are a huge pain to peel?

I love oranges but they're just a huge pain in the tush to peel. Plus, I don't have finger nails so I always have to use a knife. it takes longer to peel it than to eat it. Anyone else think this?

  • I've used the thing the person above posted and I still think peeling a orange is a pain. I so rather peel a potato with a knife then a orange. Then again I like oranges better then potatoes. good luck. No suggestions here only that your not the only one.

  • I got this thing at slip the thing on your finger and the other side has a nub on place the orange in your hand and rotate it and it slits it open the way that tupperware gadget above would do, only easier to peel.

    However for me, gadget or not, peeling an orange is always a mess and will never understand why some people can peel one without a juicy mess

  • I cut my oranges into slices... DD thinks im silly with my "orange smile"(put orange slice in mouth so the orange skin is covering teeth) too bad DH doesnt think its sexy though...

  • That's why I don't buy them - I get canned mandarin oranges instead, or drink orange juice (the REAL stuff) or go without!
