Spoon Hacks

Kind of a fun video showing amazing things you can do with that extra spoon in the cutlery drawer. They say there are 20 things here to do with a fork and spoon but I think I counted more.

Let me know which ones worked best for you!

Sasaki Aria Stainless Steel Flatware

Sasaki Aria Stainless Steel FlatwareWow, look at that fork and spoon design! This is the cutlery from the movie 2001 I think. Not sure, but this is some modern sci-fi flatware if I have ever seen it.

This ultra-modern set from Sasaki is called Aria. Made of 18/0 stainless and dishwasher safe. This 20 piece set is a service for 4 consisting of four each: dinner fork, salad fork, dinner knife, dinner spoon and teaspoon.

Oneida Louisiana Cutlery Set

Oneida Louisiana FlatwareI looked at this set and it reminded me of a trip last year to some classic restaurants in New Orleans. Then I looked at this cutlery’s name and figured I wasn’t too off the mark.

Oneida brings us their very classic looking flatware called “Louisiana”. This set belongs in your dining room. Made of dishwasher safe 18/10 stainless steel with a traditional fiddleback pattern detailed with flowers and scrolls. And a limited lifetime warranty as well. I’ve linked below to the 20 piece set but it also comes in 5, 20, 30, 45 and 68 piece sets.

Alice Waters and the Metal Egg Spoon

alice waters egg spoonChef Alice Waters of Berkeley, Calif. really enjoys cooking a egg over a fire in a hand-forged iron egg spoon. This is a rather specific piece of cutlery that requires on open fire. Perhaps a pizza oven would do but it’s made for the fire. She has had a blacksmith make these spoons available for sale at $250 each.

And it seems a lot of people have a lot to say about all of this. Not sure why it’s such a big deal but it has caused a bit of a kerfuffle. I think the concept is great and I’m sure it makes a great fire cooked egg. And I’d like to try it, but I’m not sure why all the fuss.
