Strawberry Slicester and Stemgem

Kitcshy names, cool kitchen products

by

To be honest, sometimes we like gizmos because of their kitschy names but it's even better when they make our lives easier. You can find a discount slicer and huller just about anywhere but these delightful doo-dads, the "Strawberry Slicester" and the "Stemgem," which sell for for $7.50 and $14.99, respectively (TV shopping channels are bundling both for $18.92), are particularly neat kitchen gadgets by Seattle-based Chef'n. The Slicester is swell for its safety and for evenly slicing berries with one squeeze, and we like the Stemgem because it extends easily into the strawberry, removes the hull and leaves so much of the fruity flesh intact.

These stainless steel/durable plastic gadgets are significantly safer than a knife and are kid-friendly with very little supervision.
