    This looks great- I always use a plastic corer or plastic knife, but some lettuces have hard cores- I'm definitely going to try this way :)

    You may find this weird but, I find the core to be the most appetizing part of a head of lettuce! Whenever I go to Hoss's (a restaurant with sea food, steak, and salad bar) I always dig threw the salad bar for piece of the core. I always preferred crunchy lettuce over chewey lettuce.

    Can you add a picture for the thumbnail of this instructable? It looks great, and you can just upload a screencap from the vid (we don't have an automated movie thumbnail system like youtube just yet.)

    It really should, and I believe we're working on it. But for now, we have a kind of confusing interface where you have to upload your own. I'm sorry for the trouble, this is a cool lettuce hack.
