Specific tools - why Anonymous 06/09/14(Mon)09:59 UTC+1 No.5503555 Report

Is it just me or you mericunts use insanely specific tools for specific tasks, and not use general tools? Is there really a market for those?
I mean, a special-shaped stick for honey instead of spoon, an ice-cream scooper instead of spoon, potato peeler instead of knife, nail clippers instead of scissors, egg spoon instead of tea spoon for eating soft-boiled, butter in special dish instead of small plate ... the list could go on endlessly. I myself find it ridiculous, but who knows? I even use the same mug for kefir, beer, tea and hot bouillon and soup, pasta, and salad from same bowl.

It's for the same reason that mechanics have a bunch of specialized tools. Because they do the job easier, or faster, or better.

An ice cream scoop is sturdier than a spoon, so you won't bend it if the ice cream is hard.

A potato peeler is faster than a knife, because it always takes off the same thickness slice, you don't have to worry about slicing off too much.

A butter dish has a cover, so you don't end up with dust or hair in your butter (and the cat can't lick it).

They aren't necessities, but if it's something you do regularly, why not get a tool that makes it easier.

There is some mental retardation in the idea that you need a specific tool for everything. The inability to generalize and see patterns. You cut bread with bread knife, a cake with... cake knife? Huh?

There's definitely a balance. Some of the specific tools they make for the kitchen are a little too specific.

On the other hand, you can go too basic too, and end up wasting a lot of time because you don't have the right tool for the job, and are trying to make do with one that only sort of works.

Among idiots? Yes. A lot of people don't have their cooking fundamentals down yet so they think they need all kinds of silly tools.

That isn't exactly unique to the USA though. My family is from Europe and they're just as bad with their silly contraptions: egg scissors to cut the top off a soft-boiled egg, a special saw to cut frozen meat, these silly little wedge-shaped "lime squeezers", a hand-cranked device which supposedly shreds herbs but takes more time to use and clean than simply using a knife, etc.

Vegetable peeler: perfectly skinned veggies in nearly no time at all when compared to using a knife. No depth problems with these.

Ice Cream Scoop: Back when I was a kid in the 1980s Ice Cream form the store was made with less overrun (injected air) and various ingredients. Today, most ice cream has tons of overrun and ingredients to allow it to stay soft. Back in the early 1980s you had to use a reinforced ice cream spoon as well as run warm water over it to be able to dig into the really hard ice cream. Or, you used a knife and sliced it like bread which was still hard to do. Ice cream spoons are no longer as needed as they once were, but they keep morons from bending up normal spoons.

Butter Container: these allow real butter to be room temperature for easier spreading and the lid is to prevent oxidation which results in rancidity. The oxidation makes the outside later of the butter deepen in color in a very short amount of time.

Honey Dipper: A honey dipper is used for honey because you can grab more honey with it than a spoon and have better control over how the drizzle is laid onto your food/dish.

The problem is that they usually don't make things easier. For example, why buy that thing for toothpaste when you could simply rub the toothpaste tube along the hard edge of your sink or bathroom countertop? Does the exact same thing but requires no special too.

Garlic press? Why bother? Smack the side of a garlic clove with the flat of your knife. That peels and crushes it in one step. It takes less time than a garlic press, works faster, and there's less to clean up.

>>5503910
>>Why wouldn't you buy something that would benefit you even in a small way if you can afford it ?

If there is a real tangible benefit, then sure, why not buy it. I agree. But a lot of the time the supposed "benefit" doesn't exist, and the device doesn't actually save any time or effort at all.

so you can lightly drizzle honey from a jar on your food

obviously useless these days with squeeze bottles existing but better than a spoon for its purpose back in the old days

I don't have a stone or anything but I have a cheap santoku knife.

Can I just drag it along my stainless steel sink to get it sharper?

No, you need something harder than the steel of the knife blade in order to sharpen it.

A smooth stone would work, as would some unglazed ceramic, like the "ring" on the bottom of a plate or mug.

Alright. I have old ceramic plates from a bar, they should work.

Then again, 5 dollar knife. I could buy a new one

>Garlic press? Why bother? Smack the side of a garlic clove with the flat of your knife. That peels and crushes it in one step

You realize the primary function of a garlic press is to MINCE the garlic, right?

You're talking to an idiot. I doubt he'd understand. I love my garlic press. I can do about 100 bulbs of garlic in about 30 minutes if I work at it. I've only had to do that twice though. I'd like to have a larger one that can press an entire bulb instead of 1-3 cloves.

I have one. It's good for serving honey at a dinner table since you can dip it and twirl easily it to keep the honey from dripping anywhere.

this. if you smack it gently you get a whole clove. the harder you smack it the finer the texture. smack it hard and it's indistinguishable from what comes out of a garlic press.

A spoon does not have a round handle and the honey can drip off too fast. You also can't get as much honey on a spoon as you can the honey dipper.

You are all wrong. It extrudes the garlic. This is quite different from simply crushing or mincing.

Name a dish in which the difference matters.

Fuck, all you're doing is getting the garlic into state in which there are no large pieces to affect the texture of the dish. Either method works.

So? Are you incapable of spinning a spoon around without it being round?

>>can drip off too fast
spin faster donkey

>>can't get as much on a spoon
larger spoon. also, how much honey do you need? I mean, I use a plain ol teaspoon and even one dipping is more than enough.

All of them.

Just use hot water. The honey comes right out. don't leave your gear dirty for a week in the sink and expect an easy clean.

Those aren't normal scissors.

There is literally no reason to own those if you have nail clippers.

You've literally traded one specialized tool for another.
