There has been a flurry of activity on the Internets this past week about the twirling spaghetti fork. There are many styles and types of spaghetti forks out there so we will take a look at a few choices…
The manually operated Donkey Blue Rolognese – Wooden Twirling Spaghetti Fork is from a German company and seems to be focused on children. But a very simple design made of sustainable wood and stainless steel makes it seem very practical.
The PK Twirling Spaghetti Fork is battery powered and got the most attention on the Internets. This powered cutlery requires two AAA batteries and they claim dishwasher safe, but we’d take out the batteries first.
And last but not least and our favorite solution is the For-Ghetti Spaghetti Fork from the Rehabilitation Advantage Store. This simple design requires no cranks or batteries. It’s genius design is four specially-designed nubs on each of the outer tines to catch and hold the spaghetti in place. This is function over form design in flatware.
