Pepper Prepper


OK, let's hear you say it three times really fast.


From the website:



Bell peppers add delicious taste and crunch to salads and snack trays.

But until now, they’ve been a real chore to core and prep.


The pronged end of this convenient tool cores peppers with a single twisting motion; then the other end quickly removes seeds and pith — you're ready to slice and enjoy.

Tomato-friendly too.




$8.05 (Sure, peppers included, why not? You want green, red, yellow, purple...?).

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Pepper Prepper:


Cherry/Olive pitter - indispensable!

As for peppers: Slice top off right at the attachment of the stem. Slice bottom off about 1 cm up from bottom. Slice straight down the side of the topless/bottomless pepper. Lay pepper on side, insert chef's knife and "unroll" the pepper. Result: rectangular pepper sans seeds, ribs and ready for any use. (Of course you chop the bottom and twist the stem off of the top and chop it... waste not, want not.)

I have it! Actually, I have two. And they're built right onto the end of my hands.

Grasping pepper, punch thumb through top of pepper. When top of pepper collapses into the pepper, remove top with thumb and finger. Next use both thumbs and several fingers to pull pepper apart.

Why do people need gadgets? The only culinary one I see a need for is (perhaps) a cherry pitter.
