We have another portable flatware set to look at in our ongoing series on Everyday Carry Cutlery. What with all things plastic being banned around the Fast Food world, it is pretty handy to have decent re-usable cutlery of your own.
The company Rerii produces this portable Stainless Steel Cutlery Set. No plastic cutlery here, this flatware is made of high quality stainless 304 steel. It includes a spoon, fork, and chopsticks with a round case and travel carrying bag. That round case looks really sharp and is designed to keep things from rattling around too much in your bag. Nice variety of pastel colors to choose from.

Another item to consider in our ongoing series on Everyday Carry Cutlery. From Sistema is the “To Go Collection” which is a 4 piece cutlery carry case with knife, fork, spoon and chopsticks. It is dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer safe made with Phthalate free and BPA free 100% virgin plastic.
It is a very clever design where the cutlery and chopsticks snap into their respective handles to save space when in your bag and on the go. The soup spoon is a little shallow so maybe better for stews and things rather than soups. These would be great for the office or in your bag out and about.

Continuing in our theme of Everyday Carry Cutlery we look at replacements for the disposable plastic straws that are being phased out around the world.
These silicone straws are extra big (roughly 10 inch length, 0.35 inner diameter and 0.45 outside diameter). There are six colorful straws that are made of food grade silicon. But wait there’s more! Also included are two more straws that are made of 10/18 stainless steel. All this with a storage pouch and three cleaning brushes.
All that and the company “Kitchen Up” offers a 5 year warranty.

My local fast food restaurant just announced they will no longer be supplying disposable plastic straws with my serving of amazing Root Beer. We knew this was coming as it’s all over the press but now it has hit close to home.
Those flimsy cups just don’t work for drinking from the rim so it is time for a new addition to my Everyday Carry Cutlery. It looks like reusable and cleanable stainless steel straws are the way to go.
The YIHONG stainless steel straws set of 8 has 4 bent, 4 straight and 2 cleaning brushes (as seen above). They are 10.5 inches long and made of plastic free, BPA free, dishwasher safe food-grade 18/8 stainless steel. They claim no metal aftertaste and are rust free and scratch proof.
I would recommend giving them a good soapy scrub before using the first time. Sometimes metal products like this have a small amount of machine oil on them from manufacturing.
