What is this Cutlery Contraption?

cutlery questionOK, time for a quiz for all you experts out there. Let’s pretend we are on one of those TV shows like Pawn Stars, or even better, Antiques Roadshow. What is this thing? What is it used for? How is it used? And what does it have to do with a fork, knife or spoon?

Come back next week for the answer!

UPDATE: It’s a chopstick and spoon rest like this one from Amazon:

LEKOCH Black & Golden Flatware

LEKOCH 4-Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set Including Fork Spoons Knife Tableware Black Golden


Gold and black in the cutlery world is as hot as it gets. And Lekroch is not kidding around with this polished 18/10 stainless steel flatware set. It is completed electroplated with titanium metal , rustproof, high hardness, no distortion, Lead-free, Cadmium-free, Phthalate-free, BPA-free durable and eco-friendly.

This is one setting consisting of a 8 1/4″ dinner fork, 5 1/5″Dessert Spoon,  ​8 3/4″ dinner knife,  and a 8 1/4″ Dinner spoon.

Word is that these are dishwasher safe but I would hand wash as the black coating on the handles could suffer.

Elmo! Munchkin Sesame Street Toddler Fork and Spoon

elmo sesame street cutleryThis is the perfect Xmas gift for a small child, it will fit in a stocking perfectly. And it’s Elmo! Who doesn’t love Elmo! Elmo loves Elmo!

This cute set of fork and spoon is made of plastic that is BPA Free, Phthalate Free, Latex Free and Nitrosamine Free. They say it’s top shelf dishwasher safe but I would hand wash just to be certain. The crevasses in Elmo could leave trace amounts of food or dishwasher detergent and that isn’t good for our little friends.

This children’s flatware is designed for self-feeding and the rounded fork and spoon tines are for safe feeding.

Elmo want to feed himself!

Thanksgiving Turkey Cutlery Holders

Amscan Thanksgiving Turkey Cutlery HolderIt’s that time of year again and planning the big family feast for Thanksgiving is always a treat. Sadly people don’t put much thought into cutlery holders but they make table setup a lot easier and add a little class.

These Thanksgiving Turkey Cutlery Holders are from Amscan and come in a 12 pack.  Being made of paper card stock they are disposable but if treated nicely they probably could last a season or two.

A great idea to organize and present that Thanksgiving dinner’s knife, fork and spoon. And the kids will no doubt turn them into puppets at the table!
