The Pumpking Gutter is a drill bit that is much much better at cleaning out a pumpkin than a spoon. We used the device last night to clean out 5 large pumpkins. It works very well. You can feel the device breaking up the stringy wall parts and other gut items (not sure the proper terms for these things). I had tried using a spoon and a spatula-like thing that came in a pumpkin carving kit last Friday. This was very difficult and took about the same time to do one pumpkin as 5 large pumpkins and the result was not as clean.
It is very easy to start taking chunks off the inside walls with the Pumpkin Gutter, which is usually a good thing. It's just something to be aware of while you're working the pumpkin.
It's longer than I expected from the pictures on the website. I will be storing it in my kitchen drawer. I don't know exactly what I might use it for outside of pumpkins, but any larger mixing project would be game. I was thinking an Uncle Buck style pancake mixer would do.

I have been loving Shieldwall, a strategy game where you and your Roman legion attempt to kick the crap out of other Roman legions! This game reminds me of a 3D Starcraft, with (thus far) a lot less complexity. You start with one base and attempt to take others from other CG teams! More bases […]

There are few things more satisfying than the clickety-clack of an old keyboard. So old, in fact, that it’s really more of a typewriter sound and feel than that of a keyboard.

There are plenty of productive ways to spend time while stuck indoors. While it’s undoubtedly fun to binge all 15 seasons of Supernatural or sink days of playtime into an Overwatch campaign, learning something new is definitely a more meaningful and long-term beneficial use of open hours. And if you’re going to invest time in […]
