Ladies, all these years you’ve been using blenders and understood them as belonging to the category “kitchen gadget”.
But when he uses the manly new stainless steel RPM blender, it’s not a kitchen gadget, it’s a tool!
Or so the manly man on HGTV’s “I Want That! Kitchens” informed viewers this afternoon.
It was a beautiful spot on the show. We saw the happy nuclear family at home, mom reading to the kids, and dad – dad practiced a few karate kicks for the camera. That helped establish his manliness for us, prior to us seeing him in the kitchen using that gadget – I mean, the new RPM blender tool.
The RPM Blender, we should note, comes not with a silly scale that reads “chop – whip – blend – puree”. That’s what you’d find on a girly-girl kitchen gadget blender. No, the manly man RPM blender tool comes with a tachometer! That’s part of how you know it’s a tool, and not a gadget. Also, its squarish, chunky base and the toggle switch help mark this tool as Safe For Men To Use – Will Not Cause Shrinkage.
It is touching indeed to see HGTV doing their part regender the kitchen. And nice to know that after it gets gussied up for the boys, the stuff that’s been marketed to women for years as gadgetry can now be classified as technology.
To sum up: Gadgets are for girls. Real MenTM use tools.
