Camping cutlery. Bring Your Own Cutlery (BYOC). Survival Spork. Many names but in the end they all have the same basic requirements. But sometimes that simple piece of cutlery tries to do more, it wants to be the jack of all trades.
When we go hiking this is the one piece of functional flatware that is always in our pack. It’s a cheap and effective multi-tasker. This is a Rambo Spork.
This is the MeiNvShe Camping Spork Multi-Function Fork Spoon 5 in 1 Stainless Steel Spork.

Within a spoon, fork, bottle opener, Can opener and Sawtooth cutter. Environmental and safe to use. With buckle, idea for hanging on the bag, key rings. Perfect small gifts for friends and relatives. Made of stainless steel, hardness and durable enough.
We talk a lot about how certain types of coated cutlery should go in the dishwasher. But trust us, for your daily use stainless steel flatware the dishwasher is the way to go. And we, like you I’m certain, just drop all that cutlery into the bins on the bottom. The problem is that the cutlery smacks into each other while the water violently cleans and jostles them around. All those little hits add up to dents and marred cutlery. Well that problem can go away and give you even cleaner cutlery. The dishwasher designers figured out a solution but it seems they really didn’t tell us about it.
From the Dailymail.co.uk:
A professional cleaner has discovered a ‘mind blowing’ feature in her dishwasher for cleaning dirty cutlery. Liesl Elizabeth, who runs a cleaning service called Clean-Freak Cleaning Co. in Perth, shared a video showing how the knives and forks are laid down in the top rack while loading the dishwasher.
Typically used for long knives, bigger utensils and chopsticks, the mum-of-three was able to stack the cutlery perfectly in between the ridges of the tray.
‘I was today years old… learning the obvious,’ she joked.
So we tried it out here at The Cutlery Review (as our dishwasher has those little ridges in the top rack) and yup, it works pretty dam good!
So here is the Babish version of the Chef movie carving fork:
It’s got a cute logo of his bald head on the butt of the fork. It’s nice celebrity branded cutlery. This 6.5″ Stainless Steel Carving Fork should be hand washed to prevent rusting. It’s a pretty good price. Here is where you can buy it from him:
Babish has a tattoo of a carving fork and it’s neither the one from the movie or the one he is selling (check it out over here). Jon Favreau actually gave Babish the real original fork. But if you want the real version of the fork from the movie, then that would be the Calphalon Contemporary 2 Piece Carving Set which you can buy from here: https://amzn.to/2GAG1DZ (when it’s available)
Thanksgiving is upon us in both the USA and Canada though at different dates. We here at the Cutlery Review like to celebrate both. And at Thanksgiving it’s all about the big beautiful turkey. These would work well for a roast ham or duck or beef or whatever.
Rocaware makes this set of 2 stainless steel turkey lifters. They have long handles and 4 sharp prongs to hold the meats and the wide spread prongs make the turkey stable. Remember that “stable” means not dropping the turkey off the table, and ease up on the wine as well.
Made of dishwasher safe food grade 304 stainless steel these suckers are sharp pokey and dangerous ninja weapons so be careful!
