There was a time in 2015 when all I did was watch Shark Tank in the evening on CNBC. They ran reruns for a couple of hours every night, and I would watch during dinner. When the Coco Jack guy came on, I thought, “Great, hipster New Yorker.” Then I watched him crack open a coconut with his product. It took seconds. Touche, hipster New Yorker.
If you’ve ever opened a young coconut, you know there is a risk. A risk of chopping off your fingers. I really like my hands and fingers, and I use them every day. Wiping butts, wiping hands, typing blog posts, cooking meals that Toddler Spawn refuses to eat, wiping more butts.
Toddler Spawn likes the coconut meat and I’d never buy a young coconut just for that. It would take me forever to open a coconut. Until now. During the holidays, I was able to use Blender Babes’ promotional code and I ended up buying one for myself.
Here’s what happened.
Crack All The Coconuts with Coco Jack
You can get the basic kit, Jack Pack or the deluxe. (I suggest you get the Jack Pack because it comes with the meat scooper/scraper.) I have an old yoga mat that I plan to repurpose. If you watch the Coco Jack videos, they’re cracking coconuts on their special mat. I think you can use an old piece of yoga mat or a butcher board (or nothing at all).
But hey, it still worked in less than 30 seconds!
If you’re afraid of getting your fingers cut off while cracking a young coconut, buy this. No lie. Just do it. And buy the one with the coconut meat scraper because it makes life so much easier to pull the meat out. You just hook a good piece of meat and then scoop all the way around. EASY!
This is one kitchen product that I am very happy I bought. My cousin Kat said she was against kitchen tools that only did one thing, like this Coco Jack. I get it. I mean that’s why woks and toaster ovens are so awesome, right?
But she’s getting married so I got her one. I also bought two more kits as presents because I knew my friends would cheap out. Be like me. Gift one to your friend(s). Be a hero to all innocent hands and fingers.

Tell me – how do you crack open young coconuts? Will you order a Coco Jack for yourself?
