Bring-your-own cutlery (BYOC) is something we are passionate about here at The Cutlery Review. These days the demand is driven by health concerns but we are forgetting that the driving force early on for BYOC was environmental concerns. The disposable single-use plastic flatware and straws seems to have returned for now but let’s hope it’s not part of the new normal.
The wonderful folks at Duebest asked us to try their reusable wooden cutlery set and straw with cleaner and case. Right off the bat we have to mention the packaging for the shipment they sent us. No plastic in sight, no bubble wrap, nothing. Everything was recycled and recyclable paper packaging. We were impressed.
The set includes a fork, knife, spoon and chopsticks made of hand carved sustainably sourced teak wood. Each piece is a wonderful piece of carved artwork made by artisans in Bali, Indonesia. The flatware is 6.5″ long, so it’s not tiny and good for adult sized hands.
The knife itself even though made of wood is one of the better, sharper and more functional we’ve seen of the plastic and wood knives over the years. The fork isn’t very “stabby” but functional all the same. The spoon has a good bowl to it.
Also included in the linen/cotton blend carrying case is a glass straw with cleaning brush. Having a clear glass straw is nice, but don’t stick this case in your back pocket for fear of breaking the straw.
We can heartily recommend Duebest’s wooden cutlery set. In our house this will be replacing the existing metal camping set that was scratching our cookware.
Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make the cutlery rounder, we will make it rounder. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We control your cutlery.
Weird huh!? The guys over at Object Rights have designed this rounded flatware. Every knife, fork and spoon is fit to the circle of your plate.
“Curved Flatware” is a set of eating utensils. Ergonomic design helps to reduce wrist pressure.
Materials: 3d printed steel, bronzed finish, hand-polished Dimensions (each): Width- 5 cm (2”) Height- 2.5 cm (1”) Depth- 19 cm (7-½”)
It’s $300 for a 4 piece set but it looks amazing, not sure how it handles though?
Hee hee. Sorry, had to giggle at typing the post heading “fits small drawers”. More coffee and I will adult better.
This is a problem we’ve run into more than once at The Cutlery Review. Whether it’s RV, tiny kitchens, secondary cutlery drawers, summer kitchens or sideboards. There always seems to be that drawer that would be great to hold a small selection of forks, knives and spoons but it’s the wrong dam size! This flatware don’t fit!
In comes the Camco Adjustable Cutlery Tray. It adjusts from 9″ to 13″ width , 11″ long and is 1.75″ tall. And it’s made of white durable plastic. Seems to fit?
