Cooking and baking especially with spices requires very good measurement. And opening spice tins and jars and extracting the goodness inside can be a real nightmare. The “shake and pray” method of try to fill a measuring spoon with spices usually ends with too much heaped on the spoon and twice as much scattered all over the kitchen.
RSVP Endurance brings us their solution for spice measuring spoons by making it fit. The spoon handles and narrow measuring spoon are from ¼-inch wide up to 1-inch wide has a 6-1/4-inch overall length, fit inside the narrowest openings.
This spicy flatware comes in 1-tablespoon, 1-teaspoon, 3/4-teaspoon, 1/2-teaspoon, 1/4-teaspoon and 1/8-teaspoon sizes. Measurements are permanently stamped onto the 4-1/2-inch long handles in US and Metric measurements. And of course they are dishwasher safe made of 18/8 stainless steel.
2001: A Space Odyssey is an amazing movie that although made 50 years ago still holds up incredibly. And the technology that was foretold for 2001 in some cases was spot on. And there was this infamous flatware.
Danish designer Arne Jacobsen for Georg Jensen created this five-piece cutlery made of 18/8 stainless steel with a matte finish and consists of a pastry fork, dinner fork, dinner knife, dinner spoon, and teaspoon. Be warned that this is more of a prop than made for regular table use, unless you are in space then have at it.
We saw this video come through our feed and had to do a little research and share it with you all. Bear Paw built this amazing little gizmo for assisting those without the use of their arms to be able to use flatware to feed themselves. It’s a wonderful and elegant design that allows the use of any cutlery (best with spoon but possibly fork as well). Please watch the video to see how it works.

Japanese studio Nendo created this for the Belgian brand Valerie Objects, a wonderful combination of form and function cutlery called “Skeleton”, which kinna fits with Halloween coming up. It’s a sculptural set of cutlery that can be hooked onto cups, plates or whatever to keep the flatware from soiling the nice tablecloth. They call it Skeleton because it’s what cutlery looks like when x-rayed (so they say).
There are four pieces to the set: a spoon, a teaspoon, a fork and a knife. They feature a distinctive kink where the handle joins the head. That’s the trick in this treat.
Available in stainless steel or a black PVD coating, the set comes with a dedicated stand and wall hook for display purposes. It’s not for sale yet, but will be at Valerie Objects this December for about $30 per utensil.
