You always need the right tool for the job, but when your task is preparing Thanksgiving dinner it usually means using a lot of tools, which means long after your family and friends have headed home you have an awful lot of clean up still to do. If only there were some way to cut back on all of the tools you need to cook with, or even for all that mess to sort of just get up and fly away.
Or maaaaybe there’s a way to have both.
You thinking what we’re thinking? No? No, you aren’t? Not at all you say? Oh, well that’s probably because using a drone to prep food is a terrible idea.
This video from Autel Robotics features their X-Star Premium Drone peeling vegetables, chopping parsley, mixing mashed potatoes, and even flying a turkey breast into a deep fryer, all in the name of prepping a complete (mess of a) Turkey Day dinner.
Now while most of this was a disaster (though in fairness that’s pretty much what it looks like when we chop parsley with a regular knife), the drone was remarkably adept at peeling the potatoes and carrots. However, it’s not really worth it when you also need a medieval quality glove to make sure you don’t chop your own hand off.
So maybe this Thanksgiving, instead of using a drone in the kitchen, just use it to film your family football game in the backyard. You’ll still have a mess to clean afterwards, but at least you’ll have footage of Uncle Bill throwing cheapshots.
Are there any foods that you think a drone would be helpful in making? Cook up your best ideas in the comments section below.
