Touchless Cutlery Dispenser

Dixie SmartStock Cutlery DispensersIn Food Courts, Buffets and Cafeterias there are usually an open tray or bins of cutlery for you to take what you need. Sometimes there is an issue with contamination with the dirty hands of the public grabbing in that bin of forks, knives and spoons. Many times there is a problem of people taking extra cutlery home with them (it’s more common than you think).

In comes the Dixie® SmartStock® Cutlery Dispenser which automatically dispenses pre-counted and pre-assembled cutlery packages. It dispenses prewrapped Dixie brand disposable plastic recyclable cutlery.

I’m not sure if this helps or hinders? It’s a question of health versus the environment. It’s a tough call.

Arthur Court Grapevine Salad Servers

Arthur Court Grapevine Salad ServersIt’s the Fall season and the leaves are turning golden. That means Thanksgiving is coming soon and it’s time to start planning the family meal. I’ve been thinking about a “leaf motif” for this year’s dinner and I discovered these salad tongs.

The Arthur Court Grapevine Salad Servers set includes a fork and spoon with a wonderful design of grapes, leaves and vines. Each piece of cutlery is 11 inches long and made of aluminum alloy. Very important, aluminum means do not use in the dishwasher. Aluminum in the dishwasher will turn grey or black and leaves residue on your hands, so be warned. A simple hand wash will keep it in great shape.

Gourmet Settings Avalon 20-Piece Flatware Set

Gourmet Settings Avalon 20-Piece Flatware SetThe raw look of this handcrafted flatware is becoming very popular. The black color and rough texture as opposed to polished and shiny really seems to be resonating with people.

This cutlery from Gourmet Settings called “Avalon” has hand-crafted 18/10 stainless steel handles with a black finish and polished ends. This 20-piece flatware includes 4 place settings consisting of salad fork, dinner fork, knife, soup spoon, and teaspoon. I really like the three-tined forks.

It’s dishwasher safe and has a amazing 50-year warranty.
