How I Make Peeling (and Cleaning) Pumpkin a Little Easier
Sure, it’s a cliche. But when October rolls around, I want pumpkin. No, not the flavor of pumpkin spice, but actual pumpkin. I love pumpkin soup, pumpkin chili, even pumpkin muffins, and it seems more festive to buy a fresh one than pick up a few cans of purée. But peeling pumpkin is a pain, or it was until I learned a few tricks. Sadly, I know of no better way to remove the seeds than to just dig in to the slimy insides with my bare hands.

SodaStream Source by Yves Béhar
Item: SodaStream SourcePrice: about $150Overall Impression: An elegant redesign of the iconic home soda maker. In my household, we’ve been SodaStream users for years, first with the Pure model and then the Fizz. Although these home carbonators have been very functional for making sparkling water and soda, I’ve never really loved SodaStream’s product design. That is, until designer Yves Béhar got involved.
Jul 17, 2020
SodaStream Fizz Home Drinks Maker
Item: SodaStream FizzPrice: $179.99Overall Impression: Less streamlined than some other models but the Fizz Chip indicator is very useful. We are avid drinkers of carbonated water and homemade soda in my household, and the SodaStream, which can convert tap water to sparkling water in a matter of seconds, is one of the appliances we use most. When our SodaStream Pure model died after two years of near-constant use, I was curious to try the company’s latest model, the Fizz.
