The $100 Brass Tasting Spoon

$100 Brass Tasting Spoon

This is a Christmas gift idea for that cutlery freak that you live with (we don’t know anyone like that). This is the finest of forged flatware. A very simple but elegant Brass Tasting Spoon. It doesn’t hold much, only a teaspoon’s worth. It’s long at 8.25 inches and the spoon bowl circumference is 1.5 inches. It’s a tasting spoon so I guess it doesn’t need to hold much. But usually you have a whole container load of tasting spoons to use when cooking. I guess you could just use, rinse and repeat?

With shipping it’s over $100 but hey it arrives in a flannel protective bag! It’s custom ordered hand hammered just for you. It’s a  one-of-a-kind gift! Reminds us of the nice pickle spoons (more on that later) they have in Japan.

All kidding aside, this is a nice looking spoon and would make a great gift.

SPORTS SILVERWARE!

SPORTS SILVERWARE!

We here at The Cutlery Review recently took a little vacation to the wonderful prairies of this amazing country. And while visiting with friends the topic of cutlery came up, as it it wont to do. And a sweet young lady named Cara was very excited to contribute ideas and she told us all about this one. Thanks Cara!

It’s SPORTS SILVERWARE! They wrote it in all caps so we wrote it in all caps! The Canadian Brewhouse restaurants are offering these super cool sports themed flatware. They’ve got a Golf Club Knife, Baseball Bat Spoon and Hockey Stick Fork. We have to admit these are kinna fun. But the best part is that $1 from every sale goes to charity!

BIGFOOT Salad Tongs by OTOTO

BIGFOOT Salad Tongs by OTOTO

Oh yeah! Bigfoot Cutlery! Sasquatch is in the kitchen my friends. Flatware for the flatfoot! This is a way I think I could get my kids excited about salad!

You gotta love the ad copy poem song for these big tongs:

“There’s nothing scary about this Bigfoot. As a matter of fact, you’ll feel like a winner if he joins you for dinner. He’ll help you toss and serve your salad and then perhaps sing you a ballad.”

These Bigfoot salad tongs are made of 100% food safe BPA free plastic and are dishwasher safe.
They measure 11.9 x 3.8 x 3.7 inches.

This is camping gear me thinks!

Sesame Street Cutlery

One of our readers (ok, it was actually my Sister-in-Law) sent us this link from the folks over at Reddit in the mildlyinteresting sub-reddit.

Everyone in the discussion seems to be losing their mind about the Sesame Street Cutlery shown above. The Spoon Big Bird, Fork Bert and Knife Ernie are a good looking set of flatware to say the least.

We’ve looked everywhere and are unable to source them for sale unless you want a second hand set from e-bay. I doubt they are dishwasher safe and to be completely honest they are probably made from old school pewter with lead or some other junk metal. Hopefully not. But it they do it would explain the antics over at Reddit.

The discussion about this cutlery we linked to above at Reddit went so far off the rails that this happened:

It seems if you start to talk about treasured childhood icons people really start to lose their minds.

So, what can I learn from this about cutlery you ask? Well, we did learn that children really get possessive about things like the flatware they eat with. To that point that they would refuse to eat anything at all without their magical Big Bird Spoon. So firstly make sure to buy three sets of said magic cutlery when they show this tendency. And second make sure to carry a set in your bag when you are out and about eating at a restaurant or as a guest.

And that’s…
