Tap the flavor

A sweet tool for a sour task

Stem's serrated teeth allow for simple insertion into all types of citrus fruit, its nozzle sprays evenly, and its body comes apart for easy cleaning.

Invented By

Tim Houle

Like all Quirky products, Stem was invented and influenced by real people like you. Tim Houle was working at a Mexican restaurant when he discovered the magic of lime juice on tortilla chips. But squeezing citrus the conventional way got a lot of juice on a few chips, and none on others. Stem became his tortilla-seasoning masterpiece! Tim has worked as a bartender, zookeeper, and lifeguard and now serves as a biologist working in agriculture.

1840 influencers helped bring Stem to life.
