So KFC has just come out with this advertisement that is an apology to cutlery as they say goodbye to utensils everywhere. These are the same people that introduced the Spork to most of us! I get that they want to be rid of plastic cutlery and are trying to be clever. But they even show someone sticking their dirty little fingers into a pile nuggies covered in gravy! What were they thinking!? Didn’t covid teach us anything about hygiene!? I know we are a little biased being a website that writes about cutlery but this seems very irresponsible! What’s next? Don’t bother with wetnaps or washing your hands?
This is just dumb. And it got us talking about KFC so I guess the ad is working. I could go for some chicken right now, think I’ll stop at Popeyes tonight.
We here at The Cutlery Review are big fans of America’s Test Kitchen and saw an episode where they tested cutlery. Cause that’s what they do in their Test Kitchen is test stuff. And their best cutlery pick was Oneida Voss. We are also big fans of Oneida around here and they have a great backstory to the company. One comment was they “were impressed that the knives “cut right through” steak.”
The Oneida Voss 45-piece flatware includes 8 each of a Dinner knife, Dinner Fork, Salad/Dessert Fork, Soup/Cereal Spoon and Teaspoon. But wait there’s more! It also includes 2 Serving Spoons, 1 Serving Fork, 1 Sugar Spoon, and 1 Butter Knife. Made of dishwasher safe 18/0 stainless steel with 1950s modernist Scandinavian inspired design. And also a limited lifetime warranty!
