Lobster Taser - Time to Taser the Lobsters


The lobster taser which looks like a giant lobster panini press or photocopier stuns lobsters with 110 volts that delivers a shock immediately and effectively disabling said lobster's nervous system. You can then proceed with the boiling, baking, and or grilling. We remain committed to taking out any food we eat humanely, so we look forward to more lobster tasers in the future - maybe even a home model.

i think that the purpose is to disable the lobster. you cant compare it to an actual taser, because the purpose of an actual taser is to hurt, not to disable the nervous system. if u give me the choice to get my nervous system stunned and then boiled, or boiled directly, id choose the first one, thank you very much.

its nice that they are coming up with ways to treat the lobster instead of just boiling it to death.

I love how the one guy was getting angry at the thought of the lobsters being do realize that this is meant to be a more humane alternative to being BOILED ALIVE. This kills them instantly, with no pain, and is an expensive way to save them some suffering (by comparison, I'm not getting into an animal rights debate). Also, tasers work on an extremely high voltage but low amps, which is why we feel pain but won't die. This is the opposite principle. Painless, instant, death.

So basically, with 110 volts, you are simply electrocuting the lobster? Sort of an electric chair for lobsters! Bad lobster! Dead lobster!

So does this device have any benefit to the end quality of the taste of the lobster? Any word on the cost?
