Anytongs: Instantly Turn Your Flatware Into Kitchen Tongs

Kind of a gimmick but a great idea for using cutlery!

Anytongs can instantly turn any of your tableware into multifunctional kitchen tongs. Use it with forks, spoons or whatever! You use the tension strength to easily and quickly connect various flatware and it is securely fixed in place during use. The rubberized groove is tapered, suitable for flat handles of various widths, shapes and even curves!

With this clip, you have the best of both worlds! Use multiple tongs for your existing tableware without letting all the extra clumsiness take up valuable storage space in your kitchen.

Another example of BYOC (Bring Your Own Cutlery) which is really the booming market we all thought it would become.

The Cliusnra Stainless Steel Flatware Set is an 8-piece portable cutlery set includes a dinner knife, dinner fork, dinner spoon, chopsticks, straw cleaning brush, straight straw, bent straw, carrying case.

“Our silverware is crafted from good quality stainless steel; You’ll never have to worry about the knives struggling to cut, the spoons bending as you chow away, or the prongs of the forks curling out of shape as others do. Suitable for everyday use or special occasions, the stainless-steel flatware offers eye-catching good looks, whether setting a table for brunch or dinner with friends. Note: Please clean it in time after use to better prevent rust.”

The cutlery has thick stainless steel non-slip handles and the chopsticks have a anti-slip design to prevent the embarrassment of dropping food. Equipped with a stainless steel cleaning brush, the size is designed to fit the straw.

This modern stainless steel flatware set is of course dishwasher safe.

Another Big Night – Fan Fic Sequel

First off I want to say a big thank you to my fellow staff at the Cutlery Review for their support on this passion project.

Here’s my story about my story:

One of my two most favourite films of all time is The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984) with the all star cast of Peter Weller, Ellen Barkin, John Lithgow and Jeff Goldblum. My other favorite (they are tied for top place) is Big Night (1996) with the amazing Stanley Tucci and Tony Shalhoub.

The science fiction docu-film about Buckaroo Banzai I first watched from my parent’s satellite dish as a young teen. I’ve seen it well over one hundred times, know every line of dialog, have all the collector’s merchandise (even the ViewMaster reels) and many friends have rightly claimed that I based my persona and career path on the titular Buckaroo who “began life as he was destined to live it…going in several directions at once.”.

Big Night I saw on cable TV in my late twenties when I was just discovering the world of cooking. I own two copies on DVD, the novelized version and a printed copy of the original screenplay. I’ve seen it less than one hundred times but more than fifty. I quote the movie constantly to the annoyance of my wife.

In 1996 a young gentleman named Ernest Cline wrote a fan fiction sequel he called The Adventures Of Buckaroo Banzai Against The World Crime. He released it into the wild on the internet to great acclaim and attention. But a movie never happened. But he persevered and used this fame to build a career in Hollywood writing scripts and ultimately had his first book Ready Player One filmed and directed by the one and only Steven Spielberg.

One day in 2019 I decided I want to read and hopefully one day see a sequel to Big Night. So I read every screenplay writing book I could find, researched the hell out of the original film’s story and characters and wrote this. I wrote this for myself, I wrote it for all the other fans of the film, I wrote it for all the chefs and creatives out there and I wrote it for Tony Bourdain.

Here it is:

I hope you enjoy it. Please contact me about any cooking or Italian language errors I’ve made.
