Stainless Steel Espresso Spoons

WMF Vela Stainless Steel Espresso SpoonsThese stainless steel espresso spoons from WMF are part of the Velma series.  What makes an espresso spoon different from a teaspoon that you might use with coffee? Well, a normal teaspoon won’t fit into those teeny tiny espresso cups to stir in your sugar. That sort of makes these a “single purpose piece” of flatware in your cutlery drawer, but if you are a big espresso drinker or run a cafe then these would be perfect for you.

A set of four and made of 18/10 stainless steel they are dishwasher safe and ready for today’s first shot.

Cambridge Silversmiths Jubilee Black 20-Piece Flatware Set

Cambridge Silversmiths Jubilee Black 20-Piece Flatware SetIn the cutlery world right now, black is the new black. This set from Cambridge Silversmiths features very nice black handles. I find the entirely black flatware sets are a little unsettling.

The “Jubilee Black” 20 piece setting for four is made of 18/0 Stainless steel mirror finish with durable plastic handles. Each setting has a teaspoon, soup spoon, dinner fork, salad fork and dinner knife. Dishwasher safe with a 25 year warranty and a price than can’t be beat. This is a nice looking set.

Stainless Steel Honey or Jam Spoon – No drips in the wrong places

Well this is a clever bit of cutlery design. This spoon is made of stainless steel and features a longer 5.5 inch handle to reach into deeper jars of honey or jam. Then once you’ve mixed the honey into your tea the spoon has a handy little bend in it to rest on the edge of your cup or the jam jar. And it needn’t be just a spoon for honey or jam, it would be handy for spices and other baking ingredients.

I’ll admit it’s a weird looking spoon but a useful bit of flatware.

Silver cutlery makes food tastes bad

According to an article from Ben Spencer of the Daily Mail Online: Despite centuries of tradition, scientists say that fine cutlery is made of the wrong stuff. Silver knives, forks and spoons make certain types of food taste unpleasant, they have discovered.
