What makes a Smart fork smart? What makes a dumb spoon dumb? Ummm…let’s answer the fork question.
This fork in particular is considered Smart because it will connect via Bluetooth to your phone or tablet and watch you eat. OK, not really watch you but it does track the number of “fork servings” (each time food is brought to the mouth) per minute. The idea is that the fork and your phone will track how much and how fast you eat and help you eat smarter. The fork will actually light up and vibrate when you are eating too fast.
Cyber Cutlery or Foolish Flatware? I’ll let you and your Smart fork decide between the two of you.

People sure do seem to really like the gold cutlery and it is only getting more and more popular over the last couple of years.
This is a setting for one person that consists of a knife, fork, soup spoon and teaspoon. It is made of 18/10 stainless steel but you want might to be careful with the dishwasher as it could lose some color. It seems they had some problem with the black but now use a powder coat that should hold of a lot better.
I must say the black and gold design is very striking and will make an impression on your diners with this flatware.
