Stem Gem Strawberry Huller


Reviewed by Mark Frauenfelder in Cool Tools as follows:



It didn't take me long to get the hang of the Stem Gem Strawberry Huller and once I did, I was able remove the stem and core of strawberries much faster than I could with a knife.

To use it, you push the button on the back to extend the retractable Alien-esque jaws.

The deeper you push the button, the more the jaws open. Then, plunge the jaws into the strawberry, twist, then pull.

There you go, a cleanly cored berry.


My kids fight over who gets to use it.

Yes, what Flautist said; but then I can also see what J. Peach said, too. I like to cover them in Baker's German chocolate, but plain, juicy strawberrie sure hit the spot - I just devour everything except the leaves. :-D

A Teaspoon. Multitasker that is already in your drawer.

For those with issues over the "core" consider that all of our commercial Strawberries are polyploid and monsters compared with the tiny, (1cm across) natural Strawberry.

Removing the white "core" from a giant polyploid Strawberry makes for interesting cuts for decorative use.

I agree with Flautista & Soubriquet, but if you fill the cavity with something beautiful,

fresh whipped cream, cream cheese-pecan topping, honey yogurt...

Oh my, the possibilities!

Yeah, just pinch the leaves off the top. What's wrong with eating the core thingy? It tastes just like the rest of the strawberry.

It's a tool for what to me is a non-existent problem, Pinch and twist, done.
