We aren’t sure how this legend of cutlery escaped us all this time. A single piece of cutlery so infamous that it carries it’s inventor’s name. This is the Gray Kunz Spoon.
First of it’s pronounced “koons”. Gray Kunz, a successful New York chef who worked at Lespinasse, was being driven crazy by crappy flatware. He needed a spoon for cooking food or just platting dishes and what he had didn’t work. So he created his namesake tool to do just that. With a deep bowl, tapered edge, holding 2.5 tablespoons; a short handle, easy to control and perfectly balanced. This was the spoon he and every chef needed to created their dishes quickly and efficiently.
He had them manufactured in the late 90’s and soon every chef had one or wanted one.
Sadly, Gray Kunz passed away in March 2020. But his legend lives on.
Decorating kitchens and restaurants with just the right item can be a real chore sometimes. Finding something that says cooking to your guests is important and shouldn’t be too kitschy for the kitchen.
The “Funly mee Kitchen Restaurant Cutlery Spoon Wall Decoration, Cast Iron Wall Decor with Fork and Spoon for Rustic Kitchen or Dinning Room” (boy that’s a long name) looks like a great addition for your space.
These two spoons, fork and draining spoon are made of cast iron and removeable from the stand. The whole thing measures 13 by 9 inches.
Be warned this is decorative cutlery only and not to be used for any cooking of any sort at all!
There is something satisfying about setting up the dining room table for a large meal and finishing the setup with a hanging flatware set. You just put it centrally in the table and everyone helps themselves to the cutlery they want or need. It just seems to work well for everyone. Need a extra teaspoon to feed a toddler who dropped his? There it is. Decided maybe you do need a knife for Mom’s over cooked roast? There it is. The hanging flatware is just really really handy.
The Supreme 20-Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set comes with 9″ hanging stand. It includes service for 4, consisting of Knives, Forks, Spoons, Teaspoons, Salad Forks and the /Hanging Stand. It is mirror polished stainless steel that is dishwasher safe.
So went looking for Halloween Cutlery and every choice out there is plastic. And plastic cutlery is on the way of the Dodo bird, it’s going to be very gone soon.
So what to do about having some nice creepy cutlery for Halloween flatware fun? We think the Matte Black Silverware Luxury Flatware from Lemeya is the way to go. I mean, look at it? It’s black and has such a gothic design vibe!
Made of high grade 18/10 stainless steel that is dishwasher safe and rust proof (but we recommend staying away from the dishwasher). This 24 piece set includes include 6 Dinner Knives, 6 Dinner Forks, 6 Dinner Spoons and 6 Coffee Spoons.
