The folks over at The Irish Times have a great article about the history and age of cutlery. How long have been using a fork, knife and spoon?
“Spoons are among the oldest eating tools; it’s not hard to imagine early humans making the leap from natural spoons such as seashells or stones to fashioning spoons out of wood, animal horns and eventually metal, adding handles somewhere along the way.”
I love making chicken wings in my convection oven, but you need to keep a close eye on them or they burn quick. And this little tool is a uni-tasker that I can make an exception for.
The Silicone Devil Oven Rack Puller from Joie Silicone is very handy in the kitchen. No longer do you need to fumble with oven mitts just to check on things. And for that matter, use it with oven mitts to properly pull out a fidgety rack. Simply hook the open mouth over the edge of the oven rack to push it away or pull it closer. No more dangerous burns when reaching into hot ovens! Kitchen cutlery gadget at it’s finest.
It is made from nonstick silicone which is heat safe to 536-degrees Fahrenheit.
It’s summer time! It’s time to camp! And no one brings a silverware tray camping (well almost no one). If you are backpacking, picnicking or just travelling then you need some Everyday Carry Cutlery.
This 4 in 1 camping cutlery by Orblue really does seem to do the jobs required. And it’s two for the price of one!
This interesting piece of flatware consists of a camping spoon, fork, knife and can/bottle opener. And the removable camping fork can be held in one hand, with spoon knife in the other. Yup, it transforms into two pieces.
It’s made of dishwasher safe non-stick stainless steel and comes with a nice nylon storage bag for each. Pretty cool pocket cutlery.
Wow, sometimes we forget that cutlery can be used for more than just eating. Flatware finds a way as they say. Sadly this won’t work with spoons or knifes, just forks.
It works well because when you normally just put the nail/screw in the wall, you’re forever moving the picture frame up and down, scraping the wall, hoping the wire on the picture frame grabs onto the nail. The wire normally likes to bow inwards toward you so getting it onto the nail is next to impossible.
This fork trick is not need for frames that have the metal teeth-type hanger.
