Everybody knows that a peanut butter or jelly-covered knife laying on the edge of the sink means you haven’t decided if you’re going to make another sandwich or not. This keeps the counter free of smears, and it keeps the knife clean – so long as it doesn’t fall into the sink. You won’t have to play balancing games to keep your sandwich spreader clean with the Tirso Standing Spreader Knife. This stainless steel, 8.5″ X 1.5″ spreader is made with a rounded, balanced base to keep it upright and clean. At 0.5 pounds, it’s heavy enough that it shouldn’t tip over easily, but it may give your sandwich-making arm a workout. (And since it’s described as a spreader, you don’t need to worry about a machete-sharp killing machine falling over and killing everyone in the kitchen…) It’s manufactured in China by IPAC, and it’s available for $19.95 at The Grommet or for $30 with free Prime shipping from Amazon.
