So what are special spoons you ask? I thought the same when I first heard about RoyalVKB’s Special Spoons Kit. RoyalVKB’s Special Spoons Kit is a set of “special spoons” with specific uses. The set includes five spoons that can be used for serving:
- chilli sauce – small for spicy things (good for getting out the last bits from awkward corners of chutney jars too)
- pickles (more of a fork really with those spikes to spear your pickled onion on)
- olives (with holes to drain off any liquid)
- pate (good for spreading humous too)
There’s a spoon for all those jars that we store in the fridge. In the past, special spoons like these were a part of the cutlery canteen, but these days you don’t very often see cutlery for specific purposes. And yet, I don’t know why as it makes cooking, serving and eating so much more pleasurable when you have the right tool for the job. Every time I eat a boiled egg I miss my mother’s egg spoons which were just the right side and shape for the job.
Made from a high quality plastic, the Special Spoons are supplied in a model kit format. To use them for the first time you have to break them free from their frame with a sharp knife, scissors or just by twisting them free. At the back of each spoon there’s a notch cut out to help you balance the spoon on the edge of the jar. Coming in a choice of 4 rather funky colours, Special Spoons look fun as well as being practical.
