Farberware came to us in search of a new herb stripper. Always with ergonomics and comfort in mind, their base requirements included and elliptical shape, a textured grip, the standard logo tag, a range of holes at a range of diameters and a V groove. Also nylon material. I introduced the innovation of small funnels aligned to each hole to guide the herbs into each hole while also creating a finer edge to strip leaves off the stems more easily. See Feature 4 below.
