Cooper Cutlery by Oneida

Cooper by OneidaI was reading a great article on flatware over at and saw mention of this cutlery with a hole in it. Oneida, who we all know and love, has this great set with a pierced handle.

This 20 piece set is a service for 4 with salad fork, dinner fork, dinner knife, dinner spoon and teaspoon. They say the design is fashioned after traditional copper cookware. The holes in the handles are perfect for hanging up your cutlery (handy on a boat or RV) but the rivets on the back are fake gratefully. It has a brushed finish and is dishwasher safe 18/0 stainless steel. And the usual Oneida limited lifetime warranty.

Artaste Rain Antique Copper Finished Flatware 36 Piece Set

artaste-56419-rain-antique-copperBoy, copper sure is becoming the thing in cutlery these days. The Artaste 56419 Rain 18/10 Stainless Steel Flatware is antique copper finished and has a great look. This 36 piece set is a service for 12 with just a dinner knife, dinner fork, and teaspoon.

This flatware is made from 18/10 stainless steel and the knife is 420 steel for a sharp edge. They claim that the antique copper plated finish is dishwasher safe as long as you use no harsh detergents. Considering it is copper plate, I’d be safer than sorry and handwash.

Extraterrestrials Leave a Giant Spoon on Mars!

ufo-hunters-think-theyve-found-a-giant-spoon-on-marsWow, that’s a clickbait title. But still, it’s an interesting photo and shows how if you are looking for cutlery then you can find it anywhere. Now if it was a fork or even spork that would be interesting interstellar flatware. Maybe this is where the missing spoons have been going?

To quote the article from the “Sun”:

ALIEN hunters have identified a “giant spoon” on Mars and claimed it’s evidence extraterrestrials once lived on the surface of the Red Planet.

The cutlery was spotted in images snapped by NASA’s Mars Rovers, prompting suggestions it was “probably left over from a lost civilisation”.

Um, I don’t think so. But still interesting.
