My immediate reaction of flying into a tirade against useless kitchen gadgets is probably going to end with me having a heart attack in Williams-Sonoma one day. But ridiculous crap like this Hutzler banana peeler needs to be called out.
When ripe and edible, bananas are one of the easiest foods to cut. You could probably slice a banana with a room temperature pat of butter if you needed. Or, lacking even that, its own peel. And your cereal or banana bread isn't going to taste any different if one piece is slightly larger than another. It's ridiculous, and even for just $US2.50 no one needs it taking up drawer space in their kitchen. [Hutzler via The Red Ferret Journal]
