All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!
This week’s unitasker had to be explained to me because I didn’t know what it was — the Pressto! tofu water extractor:
Those of you, like me, who regularly consume tofu might be thinking that this is a device to make homemade tofu. It’s not. Well, at least, that’s not how it is being marketed. The purpose of the four-piece Pressto! appliance is to get as much water out of your store-bought tofu as possible. From the product description:
The Pressto! is a compact kitchen device that squeezes the water out of a block of tofu and lets you quickly dice the tofu into small, easy-to-cook cubes in just seconds. Out with the watery stir-fry, the wasted paper towels, and the messy kitchen counters … in with the Pressto! We’re talking less water, more flavor.
Unfortunately (fortunately?), this device hasn’t yet hit the market. So, those of us who regularly eat tofu will just have to continue removing water the easy way by setting the tofu down on a towel or cloth napkin. You can remove water from your tofu “like the pros,” too, without this device.
Thanks to reader Jacki for bringing this unitasker to our attention.
