    This is awesome, thanks Emmy!

    A bit annoying to see a video presenting as a test / authority when the presenter has not done their research properly. If you note the comments for this video, a substantial number of them are correcting the presenter on their use and are right. These items are vintage, not antique, and users of the original items in their original time are still alive and kicking. Notes also that most of those items are still manufactured, albeit in plastic and perhaps much simplified. My response to some of the more critical comments is yes, I agree, this presenter needs to study her subject better before putting herself on public media as some sort of educated opinion when to those truly informed can see in the first demonstration item that she is not. Also like to add to her surprised type of comments on how well something works, yeah kiddo, that,s because they were invented by people to USE and service practical purposes, not just as a gimmick and to make money.

    This episode was really cool and I’ll actually learned what a few things where I seen a lot of that stuff in my Grandma’s Kitchen

  4. Rachel Frumkin on April 6, 2021 at 5:01 pm

    2 minutes and I just realized this was the first video of yours I saw. Sorry it took 4 years to subscribe.

    Before gadgets actually had a purpose
    Now companies that produce eye candy products (products that look cute and adorable but work horribly) like Joseph and Joseph and chef’n have taken over.

  6. Scudmaster11 on April 6, 2021 at 5:05 pm

    you shoud try one of thoes “vary satisfying videos”

  7. Dirty Dreads on April 6, 2021 at 5:07 pm

    "Soo..What do you think this is ?"
    .0005 seconds later
    "Its a citris jucier!"
    😰 get get to think of an answer hahaha 😆

  8. Diann Nephew on April 6, 2021 at 5:07 pm

    FYI The citrus juicer…you’re supposed to roll the orange first so all the pulp is broken up, before you twist in the juicer. It’s not a squeeze as you go

  9. lmengel on April 6, 2021 at 5:09 pm

    I think the egg whisk was meant to scramble eggs after they were cracked into a hot cast iron skillet…not for whisking in a bowl.

  10. Aliyah Pulido on April 6, 2021 at 5:11 pm

    Hi, Emmy! For big-lidded jars I find hard to open (the woes of a small-handed person!😑😫) I wrap a regular old rubber band around the lid until it won’t slide anywhere, and then I open the jar. Always does the trick! I heard you can also use rubber gloves to open jars, but since I don’t have any, I’ve never tried that.

  11. Maria Prado on April 6, 2021 at 5:11 pm

    I remember my aunt using a whisk like that to whisk egg whites for merengue,

  12. Mischa on April 6, 2021 at 5:12 pm

    My grandmother also used the pie crimper not only to crimp, but to decorate. The opposite side of the crimper has a 5-pointed star for poking a vent in the centre, and the crimping wheel, pressed into the dough, makes a pretty design as well!

  13. steve outdoors uk on April 6, 2021 at 5:12 pm

    I was walking past a bakery one morning and the baker was using his false teeth to crimp the pie crust.
    I called out hey, haven’t you got a special tool for that sort of thing? He replied yes, but I use that for the bagels 🥯

  14. Miss Lioness on April 6, 2021 at 5:14 pm


  15. Jessica Klym on April 6, 2021 at 5:14 pm

    All of your finds “treasures” are amazing just be careful with the metals some are not good for us just like some plastics as well. Don’t mean to be a buzz kill by any means…just care.

  16. Jake Willson on April 6, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    I only looked at the thumbnail before clicking on this video and by the title and thumbnail I was expecting the crazy Russian hacker guy then I got the lovely surprise of emmys beautiful voice

  17. Kyle A on April 6, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    What a cute video haha. Tiny kitchen gadgets like those always make me chuckle.

  18. Terese Podolske on April 6, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    That last item isn’t a juicer…it is an apple corer…my mom had that exact one….

  19. Donna Hannah on April 6, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    I have a pie crimper similar to yours.

  20. Camille Poffinbarger on April 6, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    The first spoon with wire springs isn’t for beating eggs. It is for folding beaten egg whites into a cake batter without deflating the egg whites.

  21. Jessica Roxanne on April 6, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    She doesn’t know how to beat an egg properly lol

  22. Debby Wapner on April 6, 2021 at 5:22 pm

    So cool! And, she appreciates the design that went into each tool. Form follows function.

  23. Jay Schwartz on April 6, 2021 at 5:26 pm

    wrong. first item is to lift poached eggs out of water, or as an egg separator. pretty sure.

  24. Nav Preet on April 6, 2021 at 5:26 pm

    I thought the 3rd one is a nut cracker🙄

  25. Bonne Burton on April 6, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    Wow, I remember my grandma had that egg whisk tool. I never knew what it was used for in the kitchen. Thanks for enlightening me.

  26. Diane 1970 on April 6, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    Most awesome vintage items ever a lot of these things work better than modern

  27. skiprani Rani on April 6, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    Those thing’s were so cool i got the can opener as its really good but updated version plastic handles 😜😜

  28. Betty Schneider on April 6, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    Ya I have my mother jar opener!🍶🔧 the one I have looks almost like yours but it can open wider or smaller! 😃

  29. Linda Sauceda on April 6, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    The pie crimper is just darling! All gadgets seem made to last! Great find!

  30. Not A Robot on April 6, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    Everything was built to last back then.

  31. Moonyꕥ on April 6, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    my favourite old kitchen gadget is an 100 year old butter curler in our draw at home- used in hotels and restaraunts

  32. ItsJustJessOkay on April 6, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    Emmy, I think the juice extractor might work better if you went in through the side and tore up the center membrane with the twisting motion more roughly to release more juice from those yummy little bits inside! I love u!

  33. Dragon maid on April 6, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    With that egg whisk you might be better running it back and forth against the bottom of the bowl if that makes sense rather than whisking like you would with a fork.

  34. hellrunxcsp ¡ on April 6, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    When your an old soul and know each one of these

  35. Đ .YODAPUMPUM. ß on April 6, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Doesn’t the citrus juicer looks like alladin’s magical genie lamp.. ?

  36. Roxie R. Heart on April 6, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    I love the pie crimper

  37. jeanette m on April 6, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    I had the orange juicer and hadn’t a clue what it was. I wonder what happened to it. Have you got it? Lol

  38. Ray Unseitig on April 6, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    nice talk.

  39. artsynova on April 6, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    The "cheese cutter" is a cake slicer and you use it flat (is for flat square cakes.) The juice squizzer is used wrong, you can get a whole cup from it, but you need to roll the orange first -a lot.

  40. linn htet on April 6, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    Vintage items are more environmental friendly!

  41. TheLepke2011 on April 6, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    You want to know why you’ve never seen that egg whisk, Emmy? Because it didn’t work and never caught on!

  42. i’m baby on April 6, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    Comment 2020🥳

  43. Heysauce Mikehere on April 6, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    For jars I can’t open, I was always taught to smack the edges of the lid with the back of a butter knife, it has never ever failed me to this day!

  44. Sokrit lun on April 6, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    You know what else will cut cheese like butter? A sharp knife .

  45. Kathy B on April 6, 2021 at 5:53 pm

    Roll the Orange first b4 inserting Juicer. Lots of juice!

  46. Rev. 18:4 on April 6, 2021 at 5:53 pm

    Could use the cheese slicer to slice butter pats.

  47. moonbladem on April 6, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    I love these vintage gadget tests! Some of them, I have no idea what they’re for, until you tell us.

  48. jeanette m on April 6, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    The cheese cutter is an angel food cake cutter

  49. Emily Kipp on April 6, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    This is like asmr
