Oreo Cutlery – The Cookie Fork

The Oreo Fork

So the video above was recently posted on Reddit. And being self proclaimed cutlery experts and cookie experts as well, we went digging to find this wonderful Oreo fork. And well….here’s what we did find:

BLUE OREO CREAM FILLED COOKIE DIPPER from Amazon.com

The Cookie dipper looks interesting and doesn’t do damage to the creamy filling. I guess it’s more like a cookie spoon?

Oreo Ultimate Dunking Set from Amazon.com

The Oreo Dunking set using a set of thongs and has a nice Oreo cookie holder for your mug o’ milk.

Torune Food Fork from Amazon.com

These forks are the closest we could find to the Oreo Fork in the video above. Googling hasn’t helped us either. We implore you, our readers, to leave comment below if you have found more info on the Oreo fork. We don’t want this to be another Nutella Knife situation!

Best Ways to Clean Silverware

Cleaning silverware cutlery can be many things. It can be tedious, fruitless, dangerous, destructive, successful or a complete waste of time. Yup, so many ways it can go wrong or right. Shiny forks, spoons and knives or pitted ones with toxic fumes. You decide.

Your regular household silver used for cutlery is a composite of pure silver, which is soft and stronger metals like copper to produce that silver shine. But that shine can begin to dull and tarnish in as little as a few months. That tarnish on sterling silver shows up as a yellow-gray or black film on the surface of the cutlery. But there are ways to clean it up efficiently and safely. Lets look at a few methods:

Toothpaste:

  • Pro: Cheap
  • Con: Sticky and stinky
  • Con: Abrasive and may cause scratching and dulling of the metals shine
  • Result: Not really a good idea, but if you are desperate I guess.

Lemon Juice or Vinegar & Baking Soda: 

  • Pro: Cheapish
  • Pro: Fun fizzy sounds
  • Con: Still a little abrasive and will leave clean but dulled look
  • Result: Fizzy but not shiny

Aluminum Foil, Baking Soda, Salt & Hot Water:

  • Shown in video above
  • Pro: Even more fun fizzy sounds
  • Pro: Soak for a short time and the black tarnish rubs right off
  • Pro: Leaves cutlery shiny
  • Pro: No harmful chemicals
  • Con: Slightly smelly and messy
  • Con: A lot of setup and cleanup
  • Result: Pretty dam good and cheap but lots of effort

Wright’s Silver Cleaner:

  • Pro: Not abrasive
  • Pro: Easy to use
  • Pro: No smell, ammonia free
  • Pro: Cheapish
  • Pro: Leaves silverware shiny
  • Con: Still gotta rub that spoon
  • Con: You gotta go buy it
  • Result: Worth the money and the effort for the result.

Outlery – Portable & Reusable Cutlery Set

Outlery - Portable & Reusable Cutlery Set

We love Bring Your Own Cutlery (BYOC) around here. Whether it’s camping, picnicking or at the office, it’s very handy to have your own cutlery that you can trust will do the job. And be clean, especially these days.

A lot of readers have sent us in the direction of this portable & reusable stainless steel travel cutlery set from Outlery. They raised more than $2 million on Kickstarter and Indiegogo and actually brought this product to the general market. Well done!

The key here is that it all fits into a little tin that is just 3.2 x 2.5 x 0.8 inches and fits nicely into a pocket. But once assembled you have a full length of 8.3 inches of cutlery. Made of stainless steel that is CNC milled and screws into a good fit.

And once you are done with your meal, just pour some water and wipe it clean with a napkin before storing it back in the tin box.

The knife is serrated so it is not TSA safe for carry-on. But you can leave that at home and take the fork and spoon. Flatware that travels!

This part is kinna fun:

“What’s the purpose of the silicone turtle in my set?”

“One of the reasons we created Outlery was to play our part in helping marine life. Included in each set is Frankie, our resident turtle, to remind us that every time we use Outlery, we prevent a plastic fork from ending up in the oceans.

Best Measuring Spoon Set

Cuisipro Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon Set

It’s that time of year to start your holiday baking! And what baking and most cooking really needs is a really good set of measuring spoons. Now, we are big fans of America’s Test Kitchen and they recently declared that the Cuisipro Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon Set was their favorite.

This is a set of 5 Spoons: 1/8, ¼, ½, 1 tsp, 1 tbsp. Or for the metric folks out there: 0.625, 1.25, 2.5, 5 ml. Made of stainless steel that is dishwasher safe.

They have curved handles allow the spoons to sit securely on the counter without tipping over and a narrow spoon design that allows them to fit nicely into spice jars.

The measurements are permanently stamped on the spoon handles and they all nest for storage and attach to a removable loop!
