A berry cool stem remover

Slicing the stems off of strawberries just seems so – pedestrian. There’s some perfectly good fruit attached to that stem that you have no choice but to toss down the disposal. For recipes that call for a whole bunch of strawberries, you want to make the most out of those tasty gems. Enter the Chef’n StemGem, a strawberry stem remover that uses a claw mechanism to reach in and pull out the stem – just the stem – so you’re left with plenty of filling for your pie, shortcake or parfait. This adorably giftable product is one of hundreds in Seattle-based Chef’n’s arsenal, available at several outlets including Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond and Williams Sonoma.
