First, I removed the stems from the strawberries at the breakfast table. All well and good.
Then, I went into the fridge and removed the stems from the strawberries there. Excessive, my wife says.
So I went to the local supermarket and removed the stems from several boxes of strawberries. The manager told me to stop. But he didn't say anything about the tomatoes, which I began to de-stem. The police office was much less friendly than I expected, but at least he didn't arrest me.
When I got back home, I started planting tomatoes. When my yard was full I started planting tomatoes in the neighbor's yard. The police officer was even less friendly, but he was kindly compared to the warden.
At least they let me remove the stems from the tomatoes in the prison kitchen, and with good behavior, I should be paroled in a couple of months.
So if you buy one of these, be careful not to get too excited.
I only made it through 2 lbs. of strawberries before I said to myself, "are you kidding me"? First off you are required to apply force to open the "jaws" of this contraption and then push it into the strawberry through the pedunkle (yes folks, this is what the stem is referred to) and into the pith in order to remove the hull. The problems were as follows: 1.) the jaws open very narrowly and since you are to push into the berry, the curve of the jaws forces them to close so you have to apply some pressure. If you have ripe berries, good luck keeping them from being crushed. 2.) The jaws are not sharp enough to penetrate the pendunkle leaves; same problem as the 1st issue in regard to crushing or attempting to create a deep cavity for stuffing. 3.) While the device provides slip resistance when wet, the shape lacks the ability to provide a natural grip.
Now, being totally frustrated, I made a emergency trip to Bed Bath and Beyond to see what they had and SUCCESS! They had a OXO Good Grips Strawberry Huller like this:
which you can find, here, on Amazon. While this is just a little more expensive than my initial purchase here, it is head and shoulder above in speed and results.Read more ›
I brought home almost 8 lbs of strawberries yesterday and nearly all of them hulled in 30 minutes! And just the hulls and stems were taken out, the berries were absolutely unharmed. Really great product!
Recently tried it on tomatoes and works amazingly well to core cherry tomatoes for stuffing as little appetizers also. What a fun and functional product!
Either someone is unloading a cheap knockoff on amazon or the product has changed manufacturer and is using a different type of metal which easily bends and makes the product worthless.
So the overwhelming positive reviews on this product reflect the original product which was a definite must have 5 star and the latest negative reviews reflect the latest manufacturing standards. As I don't know which one I'll be getting I can no longer buy this product on amazon.
It was bad enough that they were picked before they had a chance to fully develop, to grow, to ripen!
I knew how they felt...their seedy skin bruised by a clumsy truck driver who was too busy texting to avoid a pothole, or the errant assistant produce manager mindlessly throwing these baskets full of ruby jewels of nature up on a display shelf and dropping them on the unforgiving concrete floor. A mindless mother slapping them endlessly for something they didn't do.
There is nothing more shocking to me than consumers who take the time to bathe these beauties properly, then deciding to torture them! Ripping out their stems by the roots, or twisting them like some sort of fleshy wind up toy; each twist making the berry scream even louder! Yes, berries feel pain, and I am cursed with the ability to hear their pain. I hear berry screams. It is worse than the sound a mother makes when she screams at her teenager to stop wetting the bed. Cutting off the stems does not help, as that is tantamount to scalping a man alive, except the Native Americans did not eat the man they scalped.
I moved to the Midwest to avoid getting any fresh berries, and that seemed to help a bit, but I always prayed for a better solution to killing my berry brethren, and Chef'n StemGem was born.
The StemGem's blade cuts through the top if the berry's head, as easy as an icepick through a cerebellum. Berry death is achieved quickly, and humanely.Read more ›
