All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!
Warning: This week’s product manufacturer states in all of their marketing materials that their plastic device “will blow your mind with its simplicity and effectiveness!” So if your mind blows out of your head, we want you to know that we are not liable but that we will miss your readership. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!
Okay, ready for what is going to blow your mind? Here it is, the Seed-Out:
I don’t know how you are still reading this since your mind has been blown. I’m truly impressed that what looks like a plastic dog bowl did not cause your brain to blast through your skull. You must be desensitized to things that are simple and effective. I commend you, whatever your super human powers are.
The Seed-Out is a device that helps you to remove seeds from a pomegranate. It’s based on the method Martha Stewart uses for removing pomegranate seeds easily from their membranes. You slice off the tiniest sliver of the bottom of a pomegranate, score the skin, break it in half (don’t cut through it or you’ll nick the seeds and cause them to explode), and then beat the pomegranate with the back of a spoon to extracate the seeds into a bowl. Instead of using your hand to hold the pomegranate while you whack it the way Martha does, this device allows you to set the pomegranate down on it. Why yes, you could simply place a cooling rack you already own over a bowl and set the pomegranate on the rack if you didn’t want to use your hand and avoid having to buy the Seed-Out … but details, details.
I hope this device didn’t actually blow your mind the way the product description said it would. That would be horrible. And, thanks to reader Spud for recommending this unitasker to us.
