Seriously? Have you guys heard of The Coco Jack? It’s jackhammer for coconuts…the “other white meat!”
This is the most amazing kitchen tool I have come across since my Vitamix. I love young Thai coconuts but I never buy them because I don’t own a machete and I am afraid to use my knives.
Well that has changed as of right now. My son and I watched the videos on The Coco Jack website and saw how easy it is to open a coconut – even for a 4 1/2 year old kid! Not only is it easy to open the coconut and access the water, but Dave, the inventor of The Coco Jack, invented the coco scoop, which gets nearly all the meat out of the coconut in one scoop and the coco noodler with which you can create fettuccine and angel hair coconut noodles. Must come up with cool recipes for those!
The Coco Jack is very specifically designed to absorb the shock of hitting metal with a mallet. And honestly, I love the look and feel of the tools. We ordered The Coco Pack Deluxe which includes:
1 Coco Jack
1 Coco Mallet
1 Coco Scoop
1 Coco Noodler
1 Coco Shock Mat
2 Coco Sippers
1 Baby Brush
1 Coco Sack
The whole pack is brilliant but we especially loved the shock mat. Dave designed it to “…absorb the vibrations while opening your coconuts. This Washing Machine Safe mat (air dry or low heat) is the perfect size to fit your coconut and rest your tools when using your Coco Jack. Place your Coconut in the middle (“X” marks the spot!) and hammer away!”
Now we can have fresh coconut water and Maple Coconut Pudding any time. No more Zico or Coco Libre for us!
Wow, I am super impressed. Dave even has recipes on his site and I am going to be making Raw Coconut Yogurt asap.
And I think this makes a great gift. Is it Christmas/Chanukah yet? 🙂
