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.“
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!
It’s that time of year to carve up the bird. And you really do need a good fork to do that. Now Chef’s forks just don’t seem to have the sharp pointed tip and curve that the classic American carving fork has. And that you need!
And the OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Carving Fork is probably your best bet for being that carving and serving fork for this year’s turkey or baked tofu.
This fork is made of dishwasher safe stainless steel with a soft, comfortable, non-slip grip, even when wet. Those two sharp tines on the fork spear and hold the food firmly while carving and then with the curve allow for the serving of your sliced delight.
This is classic American cutlery, not those silly french cooking forks!
Thanks to Pam for alerting us to the interesting design for cutlery by Zinello.
Zinello are promoting sustainability by using a sleek, streamlined design and refined shapes. So, less metal?
Constructed from dishwasher safe 18/10 stainless steel, to resist rust and corrosion they use electroplating. This provides high resistance to wear and abrasion and resistance to most household cleaning products and perspiration. As well as hypoallergenic, ecological and improved corrosion resistance. They must have a very robust electroplating method?
A set consists of 6 dinner knives, 6 dinner forks, 6 tablespoons and 6 teaspoons.
