The Esoteric Tool You Probably Need: Review of the Kitchenaid Gourmet Dual-Headed Melon Baller
- nokitchen Sep 3, 2013 08:36 AM
People have complained about your reviews in the past and in this case I have to agree with your critics. I realize it's only a ten-buck melon baller but your review could have been much better. Testing on three things, one of which half didn't work? Would it have killed you to go to the grocery store and pick up a few strawberries to see if the smaller end of the baller was a good size for coring them? A potato to see if it's tough enough to remove the black spots? You describe the two scoops as 1 1/8" and "just under one inch." So are these two sizes too close to have bothered with two scoops or is the smaller one materially different from the larger?
More importantly, you disparage cheaper ballers as ones which will "eventually bend and break," Is this true? You've reviewed a Norpro item favorably in the past. I think dropping four bucks to see if the less-expensive product really is inferior would have helped the review immeasurably.
