It’s a “Brick Figure” cutlery set. Because you can’t say it’s Lego due to branding but it’s compatible with all those Lego that are all over your floor currently. We’ve looked at Lego style flatware before but this set really has it all. Not only does it have a 2.6 inch fork and spoon with a 3.2 inch case but it also comes with 8.3 inch training chopsticks. But wait, there’s more! It also includes 2 extra brick compatible figures (Minifigs)!
I have to say that the curved line fork design is very unique and rather clever. Not sure why we don’t see this in adult forks as it would have better holding power after stabbing into tricky foods. One thing to remember here is that this product is most definitely not dishwasher safe.
This a great gift for the little foody in the family and would make a excellent stocking stuffer.

This is what I see when I think of a Thanksgiving table flatware set. Now I will admit up front I’m mixing two Indian cultures here indirectly and mean no disrespect. I just like the look and feel and color of this cutlery from RoyaltyLane.
This cutlery set service for 8 contains 8 dessert spoons, 8 forks, 8 knives and 8 teaspoons. Handmade by artisans of India comprising of stainless steel and copper handle. Not dishwasher friendly at all due to the copper, so hand wash with diluted vinegar and don’t use any scrubbing pads or cleansers.

OK, maybe calling this diet cutlery isn’t the funniest joke in the world. We have looked at calorie counting cutlery before and it makes about as much sense.
Please remember what Julia Child said, “All things in moderation, including moderation.”
And put down that fork 🙂
In the past we have talked about how there are concerns that stainless steel and especially silver in cutlery can affect the flavor of your food. Some people have gone so far as using gold plated flatware.
The restaurant Opus 10 is owned by David Muise, he and his business partner, Bill Todd, have designed a new line of ceramic flatware to address this. The black flatware is called Certine is ergonomic, has a luster, doesn’t scratch or discolor and is dishwasher safe.
“Why couldn’t we have something and I didn’t know what that thing was. That’s why you need to have people because just because you have an idea doesn’t mean you can flush it out. What can we do to create a fork that doesn’t feel or taste like metal,” according to Bill Todd.
The teaspoon and salad fork have been replaced by a combination teaspoon-tablespoon and a fork with triangular ergonomic handles.
“Ideally we’d like to take over the table scape. Everything that you interact with with food that’s not made of ceramic currently, or rather metal, we’d like to be producing that. Serving spoons, serving dishes, gravy boats, you name it. We’d like to be producing a tough structural ceramic.” stated David Muise.
And in a surprising move, they are already available for sale on Amazon! This isn’t just a prototype. If someone can try it out, let us know what you think.
