  • 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.
