I just received an e-mail from my GF pointing out I’m on CRACK!
Thanks Anneke! It seems i’m running 1 day ahead in mind. Since it’s actually Thursday, Anyways, here’s this weeks Gadget!
I guess maybe I should start the Kitchen Gadget Friday as opposed to Thursday, since this is the 3rd week in a row I post my gadget late. I’ve been so busy as of lately it’s hard to make time to post frequently, that was the whole idea of KGT.
Anyways better late than never,
The kerneler had the potential to be a fun knick-knack—I didn’t expect it to change my life, but I thought maybe it would encourage me to make better use of some farmers’ market produce. I liked that it shucked off the kernels and collected them in a cute little canister, both eliminating fuss and mess.
But here’s the thing: it doesn’t fit around most ears of corn, and requires far more force than just using a knife whenever it does. Even then, it’s hard to get the kernels out of their container, as they get stuck in its little ridges rather that pouring. Cleaning is a downright hazard, with sharp edges all over and plenty of stuck kernels around them that can only come out with careful prying. Good thing frozen veggies are just as healthy, anyway.
