Today I am going to depart from semicircular cooking to talk about another infomercial gadget. I think I’ll do this from time to time, if I can pick up some of these crazy gadgets for cheap.
Recently my favorite infomercial has been the one for the Ped-Egg, or as my friend Stephen at work called it, the Ped-o-file! You’ve probably seen this commercial for the weird foot file that collects all your foot shavings. It’s pretty gross, but somehow, maybe in a dream, I got the idea that it would work just like a microplane zester and would probably be pretty convenient for catching the zest.
Here are the results (I washed the hell out of the thing before I started even though it was brand new):
The lemons are ready to be zested
And here is three lemons worth of zest.
The results: This worked really well! I mean, I wouldn’t go out and buy one over a microplane because the grater definitely doesn’t feel as nice or sturdy, but hey it zested well and the collection of zest was nice. This would also be great for nutmeg, but it doesn’t hold much so it wouldn’t really work for chocolate or other things like that.
