Yamazaki Aquatique ICE Cutlery

Yamazaki Aquatique ICE cutleryWe’ve looked at Yamazaki product’s before on this blog. They began making flatware in Tsubame, Japan in 1918. In the early 1930’s they were instrumental in the introduction of stainless steel into Japan.

So interestingly enough we have a Japanese company that has designed a European style cutlery set. The Aquatique ICE Cutlery set is a serving for one made of 5 pieces. The set includes a 7-inch salad fork, an 8-inch dinner fork, a 9-inch knife, an 8-inch soup spoon, and a 6-1/2-inch teaspoon

It is dishwasher safe 18/8 stainless steel with a lifetime warranty.

Steinbeisser High End Meal and Crazy Cutlery

Dutch studio Steinbeisser last Fall put on a $700 a plate event in Saratoga, California. Eight “Michelin Star chefs” prepared this one-night menu for only 60 people.

The highlight from my point of view is the amazing creative cutlery designs from their store Jouw, that we featured before.

I really like the Steampunk style fork and spoon…

But this time we get to see chefs and guest use the cutlery with amazing meals. A great combination of the different arts working together to one end goal.

Heads Up Cutlery by Dawoochen – Flatware that doesn’t leave a mess

Heads Up CutlerySo the folks at the cutlery manufacturer Dawoochen have created their new “Heads Up” kitchen flatware. These unique cutlery pieces feature raised heads to keep them from harmful surface germs. Cleaner tablecloths and less cross contamination is the idea.

The “Heads Up” cutlery made with 18/10 stainless steel is available in two sets of 5 pieces and 20 pieces. Both the sets include a salad fork, dinner fork, dinner knife, dinner spoon and teaspoon.

From their press release:

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of our breakthrough ‘Heads Up’ cutlery flatware this month. Made with Premium Stainless Steel 18/10, our luxury product set has been innovatively designed with elevated heads to ensure better safety with foods and a healthier family. Thanks to the raised heads, the forks/spoons will never be in contact with surface germs as you rest them on your table. So, every time you lift a fork to pick from the plate, you can be assured of safe germ-free bites. The best thing is that you are going to relish a more hygienic platter from now onwards. Our product is US patented,” stated a leading spokesperson from Dawoochen.”

Weird looking but interesting idea.
