Diet Cutlery – A Prickly Fork

diet-cutleryOK, maybe calling this diet cutlery isn’t the funniest joke in the world. We have looked at calorie counting cutlery before and it makes about as much sense.

Please remember what Julia Child said, “All things in moderation, including moderation.”

And put down that fork 🙂


Certine Flatware – Black Ceramic Cutlery


In the past we have talked about how there are concerns that stainless steel and especially silver in cutlery can affect the flavor of your food. Some people have gone so far as using gold plated flatware.

The restaurant Opus 10 is owned by David Muise, he and his business partner, Bill Todd, have designed a new line of ceramic flatware to address this.  The black flatware is called Certine is ergonomic, has a luster, doesn’t scratch or discolor and is dishwasher safe.

“Why couldn’t we have something and I didn’t know what that thing was. That’s why you need to have people because just because you have an idea doesn’t mean you can flush it out. What can we do to create a fork that doesn’t feel or taste like metal,” according to Bill Todd.

The teaspoon and salad fork have been replaced by a combination teaspoon-tablespoon and a fork with triangular ergonomic handles.

“Ideally we’d like to take over the table scape. Everything that you interact with with food that’s not made of ceramic currently, or rather metal, we’d like to be producing that. Serving spoons, serving dishes, gravy boats, you name it. We’d like to be producing a tough structural ceramic.” stated David Muise.

And in a surprising move, they are already available for sale on Amazon! This isn’t just a prototype. If someone can try it out, let us know what you think.

Witch’s Brew Spoon. Hand Stamped Vintage Silverware from Martha Stewart American Made Market.

witchs-brew-spoonFall. Leaves. October. Halloween. Time to prepare now and let’s not mention Xmas yet.

This Witch’s Brew Spoon is hand made and stamped from recycled vintage silverware. The spoon itself should be about 6 inches long and the flatware design will depend on what is on hand that is being recycled. This will be a one of a kind spoon for that one of a kind Witch.

Not sure if this is a nice gift and or a naughty gift? Hmmm…maybe it is better for Xmas.

Either way make sure to hand wash to take care of this unique spoon from Martha Stewart American Made Market.

Everyday Cutlery Carry – niceEshop(TM) Knife Fork Chopsticks

niceeshop-knife-fork-chopsticksNot sure what our fascination is with Everyday Cutlery Carry but it seems to be supported by what the market has for sale for us. I guess being prepared for any culinary adventure is a good thing.

Right up front let’s state that these are inexpensive and made of plastic. So that should set your expectations, they perform as they were designed and priced.

So one is a knife and one is a fork. Together they are Wonder Twins! OK, so together they are a pair of chopsticks.

Cute, effective and cheap. And you get what ever random color they have.
