I was shopping...

online for some kitchen stuff. Baking sheets in particular, when I came across this weird tool thing.

Can you tell me what it is???

Reamer

Typhoon AR+Cook Reamers

We’re proud to bring you the latest, most innovative designs in kitchen utensils, and can safely say we’ve never come across a set as intriguing as this before; they really caused a stir in our sample room! The eye-catching AR+Cook series is based on a pioneering, ergonomically designed air-cushioned handle, inspired by air chambers in the soles of trainers, and the result is a set of hard-working kitchen tools that provide a comfortable, secure grip when prepping food.

Made from titanium-coated zinc.

19cm (7½") L.


I bloody bet they caused a stir. But what would one use this for in a kitchen and food setting?

Any ideas?

It's a juicing thingy, right? Like for lemons and stuff.

Maybe a midevil meat tenderizer? (sp?)

Maybe it's a tool for Kitchen Critics. You know, "Mom, I don't like this..." WHAM! "Oh honey, not pork chops again!" WHAM!

I think it's a Whammer!

Juicing?

Tenderizing something?

Hmm. But what..

Beth said...

Oh hey, I didn't notice the product name: Cook reamers! You ream the cook a new one, if you don't like dinner.

Duh.

Well I first thought of something nasty too, but I think it's a juicer, but it would make a great whammer too.

Lucky me double comment! (actually screwed up keyboard)

jmc said...

Like Beth and Jomamma, I think it is a juicer/pulper kind of thing. For lemons, limes, etc. But it does look sort of dildo-ish...in a painful, medieval sort of way.

Ree said...

Yea, what beth said. To get juice out of lemons and limes cut in half.

I think.

NWJR said...

It a "cook reamer" alright. Any cook getting reamed by that is gonna remember it.

Thanks Anonymous, but really - I could have done that. Allow a blogger her blog fodder topics, eh?

It's far more fun to imagine its possible uses than to just give the answer away. *wink*

That said - why did they call it a reamer and not a juicer? I think we know why.

Lyvvie said...

Don't even think about sending me a link to Dictionary.com okay, because I've already seen it. Maybe you word nerds could try looking up salacious, lubricious and possibly prurient. Which was the lean I was trying to invoke.

p.s. - I am a word nerd and proud.
