Monbento Nomad cutlery set – for travelling and at work

61XSeHzhsvL._SL1500_Carrying your own cutlery surprises people. Especially at the office where it gets a strange look and then a light goes on over their head. It is actually a good idea is what they realize. There is the benefit of hygiene but even more important is that you have the exact implement you need for what you need it for.  These look pretty good and the case with lid would be pretty handy.

No polish cutlery – Service for 4 by Faberware Cayenne Satin

81qDUJm5SgL._SL1500_

A nice simple product for the college student moving into their first tiny little apartment with a tiny little kitchen. It’s a simple setting for four, nothing fancy and forces them to stay on top of washing the dishes. Speaking of which, the satin polish means no polishing required. They call it brushed or satin, all these descriptions get confusing. It short, it’s not shiny shine. And a 25 year limited warranty is nice considering the practical price.

PS – To the student that receives this as a gift, the salad fork is for eating salad. So eat your greens!

Glow in the Dark Cutlery

Glow Cutlery

This stuff looks pretty cool. I’m not sure how sturdy it is, there is always a problem with plastic utensils. But I’m convinced that it would be the ultimate cutlery for Dining in the Dark. My big concern would be to not break the handle and accidently season my food with biohazardous glowing goo. If anything, you’ll never have a problem finding your spoon under the table if you drop it.

International American Bead Flatware Set – So what is Bead Cutlery?

424fkxZd48L

 

This 53-piece set from International Silver is a setting for 8 people with 8 steak knives, 2 serving spoons, a serving fork, butter knife and sugar spoon. It’s 18/0 stainless with a classic looking teardrop design and it is a good value. But it brought to me the question, what is Bead Flatware? I first thought it was bead blasted for a matte finish, but that isn’t the case. Bead cutlery or better named “beaded” is the decorative design of tiny little beads along the handles. So now you and I both know, we learned something today.
