    Who else needed to take a piss while watching this, but it is 3:20 am?

    He reminds me of Henry Winkler and now all I can see in this video is Coach Klein from the waterboy testing out kitchen gadgets while making sexual innuendos.

    Thank to Dan for validating all of us who have been saying "It must have been designed by a man" our entire adult lives when we are up against bad designs in the kitchen! This had me laughing and nodding my head vigorously on so many of these. Dan’s sideline commentary was hilarious. It is so refreshing so hear someone who designs for everyone, and not just one type of user. They need a "think like Dan" section in all product engineering coarses. Now to have him show me how to read just my apple peeler so it won’t cut so deep. Yeah, the husband decided he didn’t like the way it was set.

    The slap chop is awesome for cauliflower rice. If you don’t want to get out your whole food processor

  13. Johnny Joestar on January 9, 2021 at 11:22 pm

  14. John Hatchell on January 9, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    You should steer away from any kitchen appliances or tools that only have one use or arw just a gimmick. Its a waste of money and you will use it once.

  15. Joshua Guest on January 9, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    The corn stripper’s ease of use was so low that it was rated in pineapples.

  16. Elisabeth Nelson on January 9, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Ok but 1:23 his nails are so nice

  17. Forgotten Mohawks on January 9, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    If 5/5 is for himself and 4/5 is for someone else then I imagine 4.5/5 being something you buy for your spouse. So he goes into the store and says, “4.5 it’s pretty nice I will buy this for my wife” 😁

  18. Valorant: Ascent on January 9, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    “Let’s get nice and slimy.” Famous last words.

  19. Drowsy Noble on January 9, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Reasons to sleep: I’m tired and I have school tomorrow
    Reasons not to sleep: slapchop

  28. Magnus on January 9, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    The problem with a slap chop or something like it is that it’s INCREDIBLY hard to wash too. A knife is easy to wash.

  29. nikolai moeller on January 9, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Picking out the top part of a strawberry is literally the most american thing in the world.

  30. Mark Randle on January 9, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    i would like something to efficiently roll rum balls instead of rolling in hands for less mess.

  31. Mr Karkus on January 9, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Life hack.

  32. Rainbow Quartz 2.0 on January 9, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    These are really only useful if you’re a chef. Or if you just really like certain fruits or vegetables.

  33. Monkey on January 9, 2021 at 11:42 pm

  36. V. 57 on January 9, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    The Apple slicer has a lever which forces the slicer to stick to the table tho

  37. Josxikia on January 9, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Dude just eat it off of the cob. There is no reason not to.

  38. Ronan Ghost on January 9, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Reading the comments about pineapples, made me remember I hate the taste and the texture of them

  39. GrantedGaming on January 9, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Whats the point of a clever cutter if you’re acoissiated with Gordon Ramsay?

  40. Valorant: Ascent on January 9, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    “I’m gonna do some banging here.” Famous last words.
