Wasn’t there a law passed several years ago banning the practice of adding an “i” in front of a product name just to sound techy and hip? Probably not, but there should be, call your congressman now. Anyway, the iFork (just saying the name makes me roll my eyes because it has nothing to do with the internet or tech) is actually a really good idea for the eating implements that we’ve been using for centuries. The iFork, iSpoon and iKnife (I’m rolling my eyes again) all have a small post or ball attached to the bottom edge that allow each piece of cutlery to stay elevated above the surface that it’s resting on. Why is this a good idea? Think about it for a sec, restaurant tables, kitchen countertops, picnic tables, may or may not be clean. Instead of resting your fork on a dirty germy table and then sticking it directly in your mouth when you eat, you can keep it away from the germs. The iLine (there they go again) of flatware are available in stainless steel versions with a ball or a stackable post design. They also offer plastic disposable versions of their flatware. Prices range from $19.99 for one set of the stainless version up to $99.00 for a set of 30. The plastic versions can be purchased for 4 cents each. For more info visit iFork.com
