We Heart Pistachios


We eat a lot of pistachios around here. Naoto eats them almost every night when he comes home from work. He should actually be on one of these commercials, except for the fact that most of the time we are eating Trader Joe’s pistachios. When I randomly came across the Joseph Joseph Double Dish on the internet one day (I have no idea where I first saw it), I added it to my gift list. (For the record, the price on Amazon has gone up $10 since I bought mine…what’s up with that?!) I gave the dish to Naoto for his birthday and I think he was impressed!


It’s a genius design. The top dish holds the pistachios. When you break off the shell, you just drop it down one of the side slots and it falls into the lower bowl–out of sight! It’s perfect for a party because you don’t have to have the unsightly shell bowl on the table, and even better, if you use the dish for olives, no one has to look at each other’s slobbery pits.


Amazon also suggests using it for edamame, but around here, we would need the jumbo version of the bowl for that to work out.

    This is genius! We eat lots of pistachios, too. When we were out in New Mexico a few years ago, we bought tons and tons because they were super cheap at the farms. And this bowl would be great for cherries, too. Another thing I can consume by the truckload.

  2. That bowl is genius! I need it and will be adding it to my cart after this comment. Have you ever tried salt ‘n’ pepper pistachios? Addicting!
