It’s that time of year to carve up the bird. And you really do need a good fork to do that. Now Chef’s forks just don’t seem to have the sharp pointed tip and curve that the classic American carving fork has. And that you need!
And the OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Carving Fork is probably your best bet for being that carving and serving fork for this year’s turkey or baked tofu.
This fork is made of dishwasher safe stainless steel with a soft, comfortable, non-slip grip, even when wet. Those two sharp tines on the fork spear and hold the food firmly while carving and then with the curve allow for the serving of your sliced delight.
This is classic American cutlery, not those silly french cooking forks!
Right off the bat, let’s be clear that this was a limited edition and if your reading this you missed your chance to get one. But we are hoping the success means a return?
This interesting piece of custom cutlery was created to ease the suffering a cross-contamination when making Vegemite toast.
From Vegemite’s marketing manager Jacqui Roth:
“Aussies are opening up their jars of Vegemite to find that butter has somehow made its way in. We can’t have that. So, we’re introducing a solve – the limited-edition ‘Vegeknife’. The limited-edition Vegeknife is a dual headed cutlery breakthrough, with one end for butter and one end for Vegemite – so now, there’s no reason to get butter in the Vegemite jar.”
Much like the Nutella knife it was a limited edition piece of flatware made by and for marketing. Let’s hope it returns.
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.
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.
