I played drums in High School and the first thing I noticed about these interesting pieces of musical cutlery is that you would be holding these drumsticks on the wrong end, not a bad thing, just strange. But it you have a drummer who is also a cook then this drumstick spoon set is the perfect gift. The musical note in the slotted spoon is pretty cool and very handy.
Consisting of a regular spoon and a slotted spoon that are made of solid beechwood and 13 inches long. I would recommend that you treat them with a food grade oil like walnut oil before using and then they will hold up in the dishwasher a lot better.
It’s called the “Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon” when you start noticing something everywhere. Like for instance you write a blog about cutlery and you really like the design of spoons. Then suddenly every single day you start seeing spoons everywhere. It’s a fatal flatware affliction.
I must say that people are really interested in gold cutlery for a myriad of reasons from flavor to flair. The Yamazaki Cache Gold Accent set isn’t entirely gold but uses it as an accent, hence the name. They say a picture says a thousand words and I think the photo above really shows it’s more than just gold that makes this cutlery set an amazing design.
Made of dishwasher safe (but I wouldn’t trust gold to my dishwasher) 18/8 stainless steel this is a single 5 piece place setting that consists of a salad fork, dinner fork, knife, soup spoon, and teaspoon. A serving set is also available. Yamazaki provides a full lifetime warranty against defects, so if the gold does delaminate you can send it back.
Two things I really like in cutlery are color and Laguiole (the specific handle style). This set from from Flying Colors incorporates both into their design. This 24 piece set consists of six each of 9-inch knives, 9-inch dinner forks, 8.5-inch soup spoons, and 6-inch teaspoons.
They are made of stainless steel with ABS plastic handles. Now, let’s be clear that although they say they are dishwasher safe I would recommend you keep them separated in the dishwasher or you will see rust spots and the plastic on the handles will fade. I recommend hand washing which is made easier with this. Oh wow, the price is amazing!
