Growing up the height of comedy was placing whatever I was eating directly over the tines of my fork so it looked like a macaroni fork. I could pull that gag with macaroni, green beans, and french fries.
Sure, you can use a plain old spatula to flip your burgers on the grill, but that spatula isn’t going to intimidate anybody or make you look manly. This Machete Spatula will do both.
The neat cooking utensil from Firebox looks just like a machete.
Earlier this year we showed you some slick lightsaber meat tongs. What you really need when you are grilling up some steak or hotdogs is a nice, long meat fork. ThinkGeek has a sweet new meat fork that looks like Darth Vader’s lightsaber.
Sometimes, certain foods are just tastier or best eaten using your hands. There’s chicken, for one, and let’s not forget ribs. You can use your fork and knife to maintain poise, but for low-key evenings at home, using your hands is the way to go – especially if you want to get all of the meat.
Cutting implements have been around since the Stone Age, but this is the first knife that I’ve seen that seeks to replicate the experience of using a flint tool. The simple design allows for multiple uses in the kitchen.
Looking at the assortment of combination utensils in the market like sporks, knorks, and spifes – you’d think that they’d have thought of every possible combination there is. Each of the above combines two utensils, and I’m pretty sure you’ve used at least one of them a couple of times in your lifetime: spork is a spoon and fork in one; the knork is a knife and fork in one; and the spife is a spoon with a knife-like handle.
On a diet? Need to lose a few pounds within the next few weeks? Then you need the HAPIfork. It’s a ‘smart’ fork that comes equipped with a sensor that keeps track of how fast you’re eating and how many times you’ve used it to stuff food into your mouth.
I think they had the right idea when they began making sporks and including these hybrid utensils in packs of instant noodles. However, they left a lot to be desired, especially since they didn’t really do a good job when it came to actually scooping up soup or noodles.
Mind over matter, or matter over mind. That depends on you.
I noticed that some people get queasy when they’re watching something gross while they’re eating. For example, you could be having some noodles when you flip over to a channel where some people are eating worms (or zombie guts) that look like your noodles.
