The Dumpling Master 3000: A Monumental Achievement in the World of Kitchen Gadgets

I just found one of the coolest Japanese gadgets ever. And it's actually 'un-useless! A gadget that would make Sandra Lee and her saggy muffins do a back flip. Introducing the... Dumpling Master 3000! It's pretty easy making a dumpling, but it's the crimping that takes the most time. I found this at the Tokyo Outlet, the junk store that's in the same plaza as Kinchan's Ramen and Hurry Curry. For $1.29, your days of spending 30+ seconds per dumpling are over!

Simply put your skin over the circle, brush a little egg wash, add your filling, and bring the ends together in a clamshell motion! Wa-wa-wee-wa! You can do this all day until you get sick of it. Even a monkey can do it!

Fill, press and repeat! These are too cool – I had to buy a few of them for gag gifts. Thanks for reading!

Wawa Weewa! :P

I've seen these around and have never tried them out. Do the dumplings really hold together?

lol @ jinius -- I don't think Janet Jackson adorned herself with those!


EDNBM - I can't wait till you make a post of about all the one-trick ponies you'd find in Bed Bath & Beyond, Linens N Things, etc.

Jeni, YOU PAIN IN MY ASS! haha.

ChristineD, hey thanks. This thing actually looks like it could make the process even more laborious.

Rene, i haven't tried it and probably won't try it out. I'm pretty fast w/ dumplings/crimping.

S'kat, haha funny that you own this.

Jinius, I'm sure the same Japanese company that made this has also distributed this to their sister company, Tokyo Adult Toys Inc.

HC, BB&B is definitely full of one-trick-ponies. Virtually every package has a "As Seen On TV" sticker.

lol. this thing reminds me of cooking mama, a cooking game for the nintendo ds lite.

Mark said...

Yes, but how do you get the dumpling out? After I drop it in water, I'm sure the plastic will melt, and my dumpling will be trapped inside! What gadget do I need to buy for that??? TELL ME!!!

eatdrinknbmerry said...

lwtsh, i have seen pictures of that game. looks hilarious.

mark, please tell me you're kidding. this isn't a dumpling COOKER, it's d dumpling PRESS.

When learning as a kid how to make dumplings, I was oddly taught to crimp both sides. As an older, lazier semi-adult, I've learned that crimping only one side is easier, faster, and looks better.

So wrong. So very wrong.

Meanwhile, continue the great posts!

As soon as I read about this I was determined to find it. Thank you so much, now I can make dumplings without fearing the time it takes!

The Cooking Ninja said...

Your blog is so interesting and funny. I think I bought one of those to do my curry puffs but they are too small lah even the biggest is still too small. Hmm ... never thought of using that to do dumplings :)
