There has been a flurry of activity on the Internets this past week about the twirling spaghetti fork. There are many styles and types of spaghetti forks out there so we will take a look at a few choices…
The manually operated Donkey Blue Rolognese – Wooden Twirling Spaghetti Fork is from a German company and seems to be focused on children. But a very simple design made of sustainable wood and stainless steel makes it seem very practical.
The PK Twirling Spaghetti Fork is battery powered and got the most attention on the Internets. This powered cutlery requires two AAA batteries and they claim dishwasher safe, but we’d take out the batteries first.
And last but not least and our favorite solution is the For-Ghetti Spaghetti Fork from the Rehabilitation Advantage Store. This simple design requires no cranks or batteries. It’s genius design is four specially-designed nubs on each of the outer tines to catch and hold the spaghetti in place. This is function over form design in flatware.
Hee hee. Sorry, had to giggle at typing the post heading “fits small drawers”. More coffee and I will adult better.
This is a problem we’ve run into more than once at The Cutlery Review. Whether it’s RV, tiny kitchens, secondary cutlery drawers, summer kitchens or sideboards. There always seems to be that drawer that would be great to hold a small selection of forks, knives and spoons but it’s the wrong dam size! This flatware don’t fit!
In comes the Camco Adjustable Cutlery Tray. It adjusts from 9″ to 13″ width , 11″ long and is 1.75″ tall. And it’s made of white durable plastic. Seems to fit?
There have been a lot of requests to us for more info on this product. We’ve found a bit more…
In Food Courts, Buffets and Cafeterias there are usually an open tray or bins of cutlery for you to take what you need. Sometimes there is an issue with contamination with the dirty hands of the public grabbing in that bin of forks, knives and spoons. Many times there is a problem of people taking extra cutlery home with them (it’s more common than you think).
In comes the Dixie® SmartStock® Cutlery Dispenser which automatically dispenses pre-counted and pre-assembled cutlery packages. It dispenses prewrapped Dixie brand disposable plastic recyclable cutlery.
