berlin-based designer julian appelius has created a set genuine multi-purpose tools for cooks – offering both wide-mouthed tongs and a spoon optimized for flat-bottomed pots. ‘CHEF2’ multitasks equally well for gripping,lifting, turning and serving. safe for temperatures up to 428°F (220°C), the kitchenware utensils become suitable for stirring and turning over fried food.

  • Too easy to be designing multi-use tools, One thing to watch for is that they never work as well…. In this case, you can’t use the other end of the tool, with out washing or cleaning the other end first.

  • Good way to get food on your hand and germs in your food. Well designed nonetheless.

    Luther says:
  • Spork for the cook. Too clever by twice like mzungu says.


    JimCan says:
  • What are they called spongs or toons?
