Not too far from where I live, there is a U-Pick-It farm where I can get as many strawberries as I want for next to nothing, provided I'm willing to pick them myself. I certainly don't mind picking strawberries--but as I'm preparing them to eat or preserve, dealing with all those leaves can be a bit of a hassle. The Good Grips Strawberry Huller from Oxo significantly speeds up the process. With the huller, removing the inedible parts of a strawberry is just a matter of pushing the huller in, twisting it and pulling it out. It traps the hull, letting you release it by pushing a button rather than making you dig the hull out of a strawberry.
The Good Grips Strawberry Huller is dishwasher-safe; its button can be removed before running the tool through your dishwasher to protect it. The huller is only about 3 inches across, fitting into your hand as you use it. Furthermore, the surface of the huller is nonslip and designed for comfort. The strawberry huller is priced at $5.95--a good investment whether you're making strawberry jam, baking a pie, or just eating a bowl full of strawberries.
