Whether you’re making stuffed peppers or getting ready for taco night, peppers of all varieties make dishes tastier. The only caveat to cooking with jalapeños, banana peppers, and bell peppers is the process of deseeding their pits. Cutting the insides with a knife can be dangerous, and scooping out the seeds with a spoon isn’t very effective either. Not to mention that digging up jalapeño seeds and then accidentally touching your eyes or nose can cause painful stinging and burning. (We’ve all been there.)
The pepper corer features a serrated, rust-resistant stainless steel knife designed in a spiral shape to efficiently cut pepper and pull out every seed from within. Not only does the corer work for removing seeds, it also features a serrated edge on the base of the knife to cut off the tops of most peppers. You can use it with jalapeños, hot peppers, banana peppers, bell peppers, and even other vegetables like eggplant, zucchini, cucumbers, etc. And when you’re done deseeding, just toss the gadget in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.
“It’s a lifesaver” a buyer wrote of the tool. “So easy to use and [it] makes the process much faster!”
Another buyer shared that they had been planting jalapeños for years and deseeding them for recipes with a paring knife was always “a long process” until they found the Fiotok pepper corer. “There’s no problem using it on jalapeños,” they wrote, adding that it works well on several types of peppers. “It’s a great kitchen tool and seems sturdy enough to last for many years.”
