So the folks at the cutlery manufacturer Dawoochen have created their new “Heads Up” kitchen flatware. These unique cutlery pieces feature raised heads to keep them from harmful surface germs. Cleaner tablecloths and less cross contamination is the idea.
The “Heads Up” cutlery made with 18/10 stainless steel is available in two sets of 5 pieces and 20 pieces. Both the sets include a salad fork, dinner fork, dinner knife, dinner spoon and teaspoon.
From their press release:
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of our breakthrough ‘Heads Up’ cutlery flatware this month. Made with Premium Stainless Steel 18/10, our luxury product set has been innovatively designed with elevated heads to ensure better safety with foods and a healthier family. Thanks to the raised heads, the forks/spoons will never be in contact with surface germs as you rest them on your table. So, every time you lift a fork to pick from the plate, you can be assured of safe germ-free bites. The best thing is that you are going to relish a more hygienic platter from now onwards. Our product is US patented,” stated a leading spokesperson from Dawoochen.”
We haven’t talked about McDonald’s on this blog in years! On May the 4th this year they came out with what we are all still trying to understand if it’s a late April Fool’s joke. We think it’s a joke, we’ll see.
McDonald’s chef Michael Haracz says they came up with The Frork to show McDonald’s customers they’re willing to do “whatever it takes to help them enjoy every last bite.”
So we have the “Frork”, a special piece of flatware to hold your french fries so you can dip them in ketchup (I prefer mayonnaise). If it’s real it will be a collector’s item for the McDonald’s fans that is for sure.

“Giro” is from the Italian word for “turn” and is the driving thought behind this concept cutlery from UNStudio.
This flatware with a twist in the design affects how the cutlery is turned in your hand when finding the best position for use.
From their site:
“In the Giro cutlery set a twist originates from the point where the handle transforms into blade and graduates along the length of the utensils. A three finger concept for the holding and balance of the cutlery has been adopted in the design. The weight of the cutlery transfers from the lifting position to the position when in use, thereby supporting and balancing the utensils in both situations.”
The Giro cutlery family will consist of the following items: Tablespoon, Fork, Knife, Dessert fork, Dessert knife, Pastry fork, Coffee spoon,Teaspoon, Serving Spoon, Serving fork, Salad set, and Cake server.
