Strawberries have to be one of the best gifts of the earth, and at this time of the year they taste especially delicious. When I’m in a rush, which is more often than not, I always seem to waste a lot of my strawberries when preparing them. That’s why when I came across the OXO strawberry huller I got extremely excited, as did my Mum. Seriously, we’re not super sad, we just didn’t realise how much we needed one of these in our lives.
The OXO strawberry huller is £7.00 and comes in a stylish and apt red with green colour. It’s really quick to use and instantly removes the hull and leaves of a strawberry so that only the sweet and juicy flesh remains. You just push the button inwards to expose the huller blades, press into the strawberry and pull. All that remains is the tasty flesh of the strawberry with no hard bits and without wasting all the fruit. A nifty little gadget, the huller is particularly useful for quickly preparing for large numbers for strawberries for a dinner party or baking purposes.
