Olababy Baby Training Spoon Teether

Olababy teether spoon

 

Does that look like celery to you? It looks like celery to me. This is the First Stage Baby Training Spoon Teether from Olababy. And by all accounts, it’s as good as it looks. A great meeting of form and function.

It’s a teether and a non-slip spoon for your baby to learn to eat by themselves safely. It is made of food grade silicone, 100% BPA Free and seems to be dishwasher safe as well.

Is the celery design intentional? I think so, here’s what Olababy has to say:

“Our design inspiration is extracted from natural plant elements. The spoon resembles the shape of a sprout and the tip of the spoon resembles the shape of a leaf. The leafy shape of the tip combined with the flexibility of the silicone material allows the spoon to flex. Babies can perform various motions such as scooping, cutting and slicing with ease.”

COZY cutlery – Microwaveable cutlery for healthy eating

COZY-cutleryIf you came here via a Google search looking for cutlery that can safely go into the microwave, these aren’t the cutlery you are looking for. The answer to that question is anything that has no metal at all, stick to plastic and wood.

This microwaveable cutlery is called COZY Cutlery because it’s warmed by the microwave. The concept is that having the flatware handles being warmed will make children eat slower and therefore healthier.

OK, I think this is ridiculous and sounds like some mild form of torture. You can’t eat quickly because the handle of your spoon is too hot? Sorry, this is nonsense to me. Now, it is only a concept product created by Dyson School of Design Engineering.

I’ll let you make your own mind up on this one.

iSi Slim Silicone Spatula – Another Nutella Knife?

iSi Slim Silicone SpatulaFor a while there it seems that Nutella posts were our bread and butter. The short of it is that a regular bread knife does not do a great job of scooping from the bottom of jars and spreading on bread or the like. So the hunt for the perfect Nutella knife continues…

The latest entry in the battle of Nutella spreaders is this iSi Slim Silicone Spatula. It has a thin sharp edges and is 1.5″  wide. The non-stick silicone is heat resistant up to 600 degrees and dishwasher safe.

iSi had other sizes of this versatile piece of kitchen cutlery but this one seems to be just right for Nutella and the reviews are amazing.

Fortessa Dragonfly 20-Piece Flatware Set

 

We’ve noticed a trend in “skinny” cutlery. Basically a long slender handled flatware seems to be the trend these days? And the Dragonfly 20-piece set by Fortessa is a good example of this. We haven’t looked at Fortessa before, they claim Fortessa tableware is used by over 70% of the Forbes Four and Five-Star Hotels in North America.

This 20 piece set consists of 4 each: table fork, salad/dessert fork, table knife, dessert/soup spoon, coffee/tea spoon. Of course it’s made of dish washer safe 18/10 stainless steel.  This is a truly full meal deal of cutlery that will cover all courses of a large meal. I really like the tiny fork and spoon!

And a cute little trademark stamp on each of them.
