Say hello to this fantastic kitchen tool, the Hackit!
If you have always tried to break up mince in the frying pan with a fork or spoon, or wondered how to chop up strawberries easily then the Hackit is your go-to kitchen tool. It breaks up mince with ease and you can even let your kids help with making your delicious bolognese sauce. It has no problems with chopping up strawberries either, some chopping actions and you have sweet small chunks of strawberry you can mix into your favourite yogurt or cereal.
This great tool, the Hackit is used by one in six Norwegians and is endorsed by Erling Sundal, a three-star Michelin chef. Erling decided that he loved the tool so much that he bought a major share of the company. Now thanks to husband and wife team Stephen and Jill Damien and Jill’s brother Stuart, the Hackit has been brought to Australia. Their company, Craig Damien is an Australian company that imports and develops a wide range of quirky and interesting products for the home and kitchen.
So when this colourful kitchen tool came into my hands, I couldn’t wait to see what it could do. What would I try it on first? It was a Friday afternoon and I felt like whipping up something easy for our Friday night treat so I thought of this quick 3 Ingredient Dessert.
Wash 10 strawberries and place in a bowl
Add 1 teaspoon of sugar
Grab the fantastic Hackit Tool
And start breaking the yummy strawberries up
Rinse the Hackit in water to wash off the strawberries, dry with some paper towel then it’s ready to chop the Oreos
Place 4 Oreos in a bowl
Hold the Hackit and gently chop up the Oreos. I found the easiest way was by placing the Hackit over the centre of the Oreo and carefully push down
Continue to chop up the Oreos into smaller pieces
Place 4 large scoops of vanilla ice cream into a bowl
Place the chopped strawberries and chopped Oreos into the vanilla ice cream
Grab the Hackit and mash it all together
Place the ice cream mixture into a container and put in the freezer for about 1 hour or until it has set. You don’t want it to be in the freezer too long as it starts to get too hard and icy.
The finished product is a quick and easy 3 ingredient dessert!
Yummy vanilla ice cream with sweet, juicy strawberries and crushed chocolate Oreos
It can’t get any better than this delicious dessert for a Friday night treat. Well, it could! You can add some gooey, thick chocolatey syrup to the bottom of your serving dish, YUM!!
I loved using the Hackit and have since used it for other recipes, such as chopping up walnuts for brownies. It is a versatile kitchen tool and it sits cosily in my kitchen drawer. I would proudly give this as a gift to my family and friends. It’s also a safe tool for the kids to use as well, no sharp edges. The kids can safely help you out in the kitchen with mashing and chopping.
The Hackit retails for $19.95 and is available at a range of retail outlets. If you would like to see where to buy the Hackit or for more information, you can visit their website here.
