    Always nice to see reviews on how well a gadget works. I know people with tremors or cannot use their hands very well can benefit with tools to do simple peeling, but if they never work properly it's gonna cause more issues than helping.

    You can do your own garlic shaker at home with a mason jar or Tupperware. It’s definitley easier with garlic that’s been in your pantry a couple of days

    The potato peeling gloves are meant to be used under running water as you prep potatoes for boiling, not on already boiled potatoes. Or in a dish filled with water, if you're concerned about wasting water. They're quite effective when used properly and quite common in the Nordic countries.

    Actually I think if you cut the bottom of the garlic, it will come off easier.
    And yeah, smashing and peeling garlic works, but when you are making pickled stuff where you put garlic, you need it to be whole, not smashed. I remember helping my mom peeling off garlic every summer when she prepared dozens of jars with pickled everything, I hated it and this tool would have been handy.

    The whole problem with a shrimp peeler is that you get rid of the shrimp shell where a huge amount of flavor comes from, not to mention protection from drying out too fast during cooking. If you really insist on cooking shrimps without their shells a better method might be to insert the shrimp peeler into your left ventricele.

    Whoe peels potatoes after they're cooked? absurd. I'm pretty sure the gloves are for raw potatoes, as they cook the flesh softens and that's why they became clogged in the palms

    I will never understand how companies embarrass themselves with product launches of products that are barely tested. How does this even happen? Don’t they know consumers will buy it and know it doesn’t work? 🤔😧🤨🤷🏻‍♀️

    As a disabled person with a degree in Industrial Design, I like his left handed oil test. I had some sharp words for employers over the years about how they utterly failed to consider anyone who wasn’t 20-50 and perfectly free of any and all visual or physical difficulties.
    I can no longer work and miss it terribly.

    one issue with gadgets is are they worth the mess and hassle of cleaning them. best peeler I've used is the OXO soft handle. Best shrimp peeler I have is a "shrimp knife".

    10:45 I'd like to see this redesigned as a kitchen towel sort of shape. Which you can use to hold and rub the potatoe, hopefully eliminating the use of finger pressure, and utilising a greater surface area of the tool.
    Edit: I paused and commented before I watched his design idea. Not bad but I'd honestly prefer my own. I also think mine would be easier to clean.

    I have a feeling that most of these gadgets only exist to make you waste money and clutter up your house. I think that a good principle to live by in the kitchen is if something only works for one task then it's most likely not worth it.
