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 is one of those items that when you see it your first thought is, “ingenious!” Then, you pause for a moment and remember you don’t own a restaurant that serves guests olives as appetizers. The Double Dip Bowl:
Let’s all agree that the name is confusing. The nesting bowls are designed so you can hide unsightly pits and shells into the lower, hidden bowl after you eat the yummy part of the nut or cherry or olive. There isn’t really anything dipping or double dipping about this in the least. It really should be called something like a Shell Shrouder Bowl or a Squirrel Away Bowl. The name is broken.
Let’s also agree that while it’s a neat idea, you would rarely (maybe never) use it. Instead of a useful bowl, it would be a dust collector. When sitting home alone with a bag of pistachios, you just put the shells in a regular bowl or straight into the trash. You don’t care if you see the remnants of your snack. This is one of those fancy bowls just for parties — and you probably don’t serve things with shells or pits at parties because those things are messy. Also, you know your guests will be shaking hands with each other, and no one wants to shake hands with someone who just had his hands in his mouth retrieving an olive pit.
