Hot take: Meat Is Delicious. Beef, chicken, pork, fish, turkey... I could keep listing but I won't because they're all equally good. I've never met a meat I didn't like. This GIF of Ron is literally my Patronus.
But there is one major meat problem: shredding. Using forks is inefficient and slow, and hacks to speed it up never seem to work. Enter: the Bear Paws Shredder Claws ($13).
Now, before you call me bananas, I should tell you that I'm not the only one obsessed with these claws. Over 2,700 people have reviewed them on Amazon, with an average rating of 4.7 stars. That's literally as close as the internet has ever come to agreeing on something.
What's so great about the Bear Paws? These puppies can turn a pork shoulder into a pile of pulled pork in just a few minutes. That means there's also less time required for pulled pork to get into my mouth.
Even professional chefs stan:
For all you Alton Brown die-hards out there, these are anything but unitaskers — in addition to shredding pork, you can use the Bear Paws to lift meat off the heat, secure unwieldy objects like watermelon for slicing, and even make guacamole!
Plus, you get to feel like Wolverine while you use them, which definitely makes cooking way more fun.
Alton would be proud.
Get a pair from Amazon for $12.95 (available in six colors).
