TikTokers Are Making The Same Joke About This Shredded Chicken Gadget

Food prep is an everyday time-consuming effort for home chefs. There are a few tricks we can implement to cut down on the amount of time spent in the kitchen, such as using a kitchen gadget or tool. A task like shredding chicken, even for just one portion, is not always easy. It's a fairly straightforward task, as with most other food prep to-do's, but it can eat up your time. There are hacks for shredding chicken, like using a couple of forks or even a stand mixer, which KitchenAid describes as an easier way to shred chicken.

If you don't think chicken and stand mixers should, well, mix, then shredding the meat with forks is another option. But it might take a good amount of elbow grease to get the job done. And what if your elbows didn't agree to get greasy? There is a tool, however, that is made to shred chicken, and TikTok users are having a field day making jokes about it. The comparisons they're making are pretty eyebrow-raising when you make the connection.

Chicken shredder or chicken grinder?

People use kitchen gadgets – even ones like the mandoline, which so many home chefs are afraid of to reduce the amount of time spent in the kitchen stuck on a single task. But a particular chicken shredder intended to do just that could leave people stuck on a different topic for quite some time. A TikTok video posted by user coveralldoll shows a large chicken breast being shredded in seconds by a large, red twisting tool with spikes in the top and bottom compartments. The comment section, however, clearly has one thing and one thing only on the brain.

Users in the comments are calling out the resemblance that the tool bears to a different kind of shredder – a spiked tool used to break up marijuana known as a grinder. Clearly, the size impressed some users, one of whom remarked, "Wow. I didn't know they sold them that big! My grinder (made of wood) only holds a gram." A different viewer commented, "It's a grinder but for chicken." Continuing to poke fun, a third person wrote, "Oh I do this for my plant based nuggets!" And the hits just kept coming. Many seemed to have a high opinion of the tool even if they didn't strictly want to use it for chicken. When it comes to comparisons, the internet never loses.
