Renge Melamine Soup Spoon or Chinese style spoons are essential for soup dishes such as ramen and udon noodles. These melamine spoons are an economical alternative to ceramic spoons. Melamine resin is thermoset, which means that it can withstand high temperatures.
in Japanese the traditional ramen spoon is known as a chirirenge (or, more often, just ″renge″), which literally translates as ″falling lotus petal.
For a regular spoon, you hold it like how you are holding a pen. However, When you hold a renge, you fit your index finger on the ditch or the inner handle pointing into the bowl.
This is a set of 6 pieces melamine soup spoons with a notch and hook to prevent slipping in the bowl for either face down or face up. They are dish washer safe.

Finally our friend Babish has his own set of cutlery. We knew it was coming but it was a long time coming.
It’s what you would expect from Babish, simple and effective. This 20 piece set of cutlery is made of dishwasher safe 18/8 stainless steel. It consists of four dinner knives, four dinner forks, four salad forks, four tablespoons and four teaspoons.
It seems to be fine flatware, it’s got his name on the knife and it’s a heavy set with a moderate price for the type of flatware. Hey it’s Babish, he’s gotta pay the bills cause Youtube monetization ain’t exactly covering the cost of inflation these days.

It is a rare event here at the Cutlery Review that we will talk about knives. Yes, we know that knives are cutlery but the “knife world” is so vast that we are hesitant to go to there. But this knife isn’t just a knife and it’s our camping/hiking/picnicking fave.
This Laguiole Knife and Corkscrew has been in our pocket for wine fueled picnics for over a decade and we love it. They are expensive but it was a gift so that helps 🙂
This Laguiole 12 cm Model with corkscrew weighs 97 g with a blade that is 10 cm and made of 12C27 stainless steel. It features a Juniper wood handle with shepherd’s cross (that’s the pins in the handle in a cross shape). The Bee and spring forged from one piece and fully handmade. The Bee? That’s a the middle of the knife and the sign this is a true Laguiole. This is some classic classy cutlery.

No, it’s not a really long spoon. No, it’s not a spork. It’s a titanium folding spoon. Why? Because a folding spoon can fit in those small places like your tiny cook pot and it’s super light and super handy. It’s cutlery that does the job but doesn’t take up all the space. It’s a handy flatware.
GADIEMKENSD makes a 100% titanium folding spoon that unfolded is 53mm long and 40mm wide.
Folded it’s 80mm and it always weighs 18g.
This convenient little spoon tucked away it your hiking cook kit is a life saver. Too many times we seen people with melted plastic sporks wishing they had this spoon.
