  • Welcome to HowToCookThat I'm Ann Reardon and I'm Dave.

  • And today we are doing Clever or Never because we had so many requests to do another one.

  • We are going to do it a bit differently today.

  • I have chosen 3 gadgets and Dave has chosen 3 gadgets and we don't know what each other's

  • gadgets are or what they do so we are going to give it a go and see how that goes.

  • You can vote in the comments, which gadgets you think are Clever give it the thumbs up

  • and which ones you think are never, give it the thumbs down.

  • And also we will put a poll over on Community so you can go over there and vote for your

  • favourite gadget, I'll put a link to Community below so that you can get to that.

  • So I think we'll start with one of your gadgets.

  • Sure.

  • Gadget Number 1 is this device which is a Drink Dispenser.

  • How does it work?

  • Not like that!

  • Um you have to...

  • Now I get my drink ...

  • Ahhh yeah, I've got to put it on that way.

  • ... I was thinking it was going to be a disaster if I put it on ... the other way up.

  • Drink all over the counter is not quite what we're after.

  • How's this going to work?

  • Well, I have no idea because I've never done it before.

  • I can imagine it when it's full but I'm not sure when it's empty.

  • Anyway let's have a look.

  • We'll either make a mess ... this is the new kitchen by the way.

  • Yes we were going to do a tour today but I still don't have splashbacks in so we'll have

  • to do a tour once the splashbacks are in.

  • They are on order, soon.

  • Speaking of 'splash', let's see how we go.

  • Oh no splash!

  • And it's not falling over anymore.

  • Fantastic.

  • Can I have first go?

  • Sure.

  • Wow, that's so frothy!

  • A glass of froth.

  • It's a bit slow to pour.

  • You wouldn't want to be in a queue at a party.

  • If you give it a squeeze.

  • It's like milking a coke.

  • Milking a cow.

  • Stop!

  • Alright your turn.

  • This is so much easier than just pouring!

  • Oh my goodness.

  • At least the kids couldn't pour a whole thing fast.

  • That is too slow.

  • No, I like it.

  • I like the concept of it but that is just dribbling.

  • You shouldn't have to pump.

  • You shouldn't have to pump it like that to get it to work.

  • Yeah but it's heaps of fun!

  • Nah I don't know about that, I'm not saying that's not Clever because I reckon that's

  • going to be a hit with the kids.

  • It doesn't pour drink, that's its prime function.

  • Ok, alright yeah, apart from that!

  • Gadget number 2 is a steering wheel.

  • It is a melon cutter, we have a mini version of this that I use lots of days to cut apples

  • for Jedd's lunch because he's got wobbly teeth.

  • He's losing his first little teeth.

  • Awww, so cute.

  • So it works really well for apples so this is like a super-size version and I want to

  • know if it works on melons.

  • Now, I don't know about you but in Australia we can't get watermelons this size so I couldn't

  • use it on a watermelon.

  • So we are going to try it on what we call a rockmelon but I know elsewhere in the world

  • it's called a ... cantaloupe.

  • Right, I like your accent.

  • I have no idea if I can do this.

  • As always I have not tested this gadget so you're watching me use it for the first time!

  • Wow.

  • Ughhh, I can't do it.

  • Do you want my help?

  • Muscles go to it.

  • Awww, Strewth!

  • Ohhhh, you broke my gadget!

  • Never!

  • Wow.

  • It's started cutting the melon just there but it just couldn't get through without breaking.

  • It is a rock-melon ... boom boom!

  • I didn't actually expect it to break, I thought that would work.

  • Gee we're not doing good with our gadgets today.

  • I actually wondered if this would work for cutting a cake into perfectly portioned slices.

  • I have one here that I prepared earlier.

  • It's a Black Forest Cake.

  • So let's give ... I don't know if it's going to work this broken but let's give it a go.

  • The moment of truth, is it going to work.

  • It's just compacting the cake!

  • It's getting smaller.

  • I don't think this thing is sharp at all, I think that's the problem.

  • It's just squashing the cake, how can it not cut a cake.

  • Nah, it's all good.

  • Look at that, magnificent.

  • That saved you, like, 20 seconds.

  • But how am I going to get it off the cake.

  • You just use your hands from this point.

  • Oh my gosh!

  • Well that becomes sort of like the plate, you carry it by the green handles.

  • This is a total failure, oh my goodness, what do you think?

  • If I wanted a cake that looked like that, I would have cut it.

  • It ruined my beautiful cake.

  • If I turn it this way, it worked really well but if I turn it this way.

  • Clever ... Never.

  • So don't use it for cakes, don't use it for melons.

  • It wouldn't even cut melon.

  • Ready for a piece of cake?

  • Yes.

  • I can bring the whole thing to you.

  • Which one would you like?

  • This is so clever.

  • Oh I was trying to give you this one but that one fell out.

  • Yes it's like a dispenser.

  • Instead of a coke dispenser it's a cake dispenser.

  • Hmmm, so clever.

  • Little known fact, Dave is not a sweet tooth.

  • Gadget number 3 is this clever little thing, it's called an 'Easysealer' and it has heat

  • sealing action!

  • I must admit when I asked you what you needed from the shops for your gadgets you said Coke,

  • Twisties, M&Ms I actually didn't think you had gadgets.

  • I thought you were just ordering snacks.

  • So I'm pretty impressed that you actually have gadgets that go with these things.

  • Yeah I've got some cool gadgets, I'm thinking, always thinking.

  • So I'm going to take this one out and ... You can't reseal if it's not open.

  • I'm sort of gonna ... I don't know if people have Twisties.

  • Do you have Twisties in your part of the world because these are my favourite snacks.

  • If you look down the bottom we have a PO Box, you are welcome to send me Twisties (jk).

  • They're like a buck.

  • I think people want the other way around, they want to try them.

  • So it's open, so now what are you going to do?

  • Well, I guess I'm going to go like this.

  • Like a stapler?

  • (Bang!)

  • What did you do?!

  • Gave me a fright.

  • There is no way this is working.

  • Oh, I think you went too fast at the end.

  • It was working at the beginning.

  • We might have a winner!

  • I was cynical, I had my doubts...

  • Fair enough, the first 2 gadgets failed terribly.

  • They did but this one is from Japan.

  • Or is it from Singapore?

  • It's from Singapore ... via Japan.

  • It sealed it.

  • That is actually very clever.

  • That is very cool because by sealing it like that they are going to stay crispy and crunchy.

  • Okay let's see if it works on the M&Ms.

  • You want to do it?

  • Yeah, sure.

  • Do you think the wire is getting hot and melting the packet?

  • That's what I think is happening.

  • Okay let's see, ready for the test.

  • Oh my goodness it works.

  • Yay!

  • We've got a clever.

  • It's works that's cool.

  • That is very good, so if you don't have a container to put everything in and you have

  • just finished baking something and only used a bit of the packet you can reseal that up.

  • Ow!

  • It is hot?

  • Yep, yeah that would definitely seal my fingers.

  • I don't recommend you stick your fingers in the Easysealer but that is very cool for being

  • able to reseal heaps of stuff, that is great, I like that idea.

  • What do you think, Clever or Never?

  • Ow!

  • What are you doing?

  • Yep I think it's Clever, I think that they have come up with a ripper.

  • I think it's Clever too, let us know in the comments what you think, Clever or Never for

  • gadget number 3.

  • Well done Japan.

  • Gadget number 4.

  • Okay.

  • Come on!

  • It's not a gadget it's a piece a piece of equipment.

  • It's a printer, you can use any printer but inside this one is edible ink in a cartridge

  • instead of ink that you can't eat.

  • Did you get this from a $2 shop?

  • No.

  • Most people don't have one of these but you can get lots of places that will print for

  • you with edible ink so this is actually not the gadget bit of it.

  • The bit that I wanted to test out are these and they are Chocolate Transfer Sheets but

  • they're printable chocolate transfer sheets.

  • Okay.

  • So we've used before on HowToCookThat chocolate transfer sheets like this that you buy and

  • they're printed with cocoa butter and they turn out beautifully so when I saw that you

  • could print your own, I thought that's awesome.

  • But I don't think it's going to turn out quite the same because with cocoa butter you can

  • print in white but whereas when you're using this you can't print in white.

  • So there's one problem already, you can't use it with brown chocolate.

  • Right.

  • So you can only use this type of printed chocolate transfer sheet with white chocolate.

  • I like white chocolate.

  • But we'll give it a go.

  • So basically what you do is you either send it off to someone who has an edible printer

  • or you print it yourself if you have one and you print your design onto transfer sheet

  • which just feels a bit, it shiny like plastic on one side and then the other side is, how

  • would you describe that?

  • Fuzzy?

  • Texture-ous?

  • It's definitely got a layer of something on there that is going to transfer to the chocolate

  • I assume.

  • Okay so do you want to move that out of the way because we don't actually need that I

  • was just explaining.

  • Now I'm actually going to do 2 gadgets at once because they go together, I need both

  • of them.

  • So this one is my other gadget which is a chocolate lollipop mould.

  • So you put the little sticks here and you fill this bit up with chocolate but the bit

  • I liked about it is this.

  • It comes apart.

  • What's so good about it coming apart?

  • Because then you go like this, you've got the holes there, we can put our transfer sheet

  • here and line it up exactly where we want it.

  • And then I'll put the traditional chocolate transfer sheet on the other half so we can

  • compare them.

  • And then what you do is you just put this over the top and it's got a magnet and it

  • lines up.

  • So instead of having to cut out individual circles and put them in each hole you just

  • saved yourself a heap of time.

  • Now we are going to put our lollipop sticks, which should be cake pop sticks in each hole.

  • That'll do and then we are going to fill up each of our moulds so that they are covering

  • the design and also covering the cake pop stick.

  • So we are going to do that for the ones that are printed and for the traditional chocolate

  • transfer sheets so we can see the difference and see which ones are better and which ones

  • look good.

  • And I hope that the top ones work because that is just awesome if you can print your

  • own for birthday parties and everything else.

  • If you give that a little tap it will smooth out the other side.

  • So once they're all filled they have to go in the fridge to set and so we might come

  • back to this gadget and check out how it worked and move on.

  • Gadget number 6 is a Cookie Cutter.

  • Yay.

  • I'm predicting clever, it rolls and does things and it's for Cookies or as we call them in

  • Australia, Biscuits.

  • In America they're cookies, in America they call biscuits, what we call scones ... in

  • the UK that's scones.

  • And in Germany that's platzchen ... Is a scone a platzchen?

  • Or a biscuit is or a cookie, in Chinese is a 曲奇饼.

  • Really?

  • I don't believe you.

  • All the Chinese viewers, write in and let me know, 曲奇饼.

  • If you know anyone who says they can speak another language, there is this test that

  • you can do.

  • What language, Chinese?

  • Yep.

  • Okay so pull out Google Translate and then put the microphone on and see if it can recognise

  • what you said.

  • 曲奇饼

  • It says 'Together and together'. Awww.

  • So sweet but not what you were trying to say, try again. Ready?

  • 曲奇饼
