Filed under “What took so long?” someone finally made a salad boat. But The Row Boat Salad Bowl didn’t stop with just a vessel to hold your greens — but also included mini oars as your salad servers. Row up some romaine or mixed greens for your guests, and you’ll have a conversation piece until the entrees arrive.
I am not quite sure under what circumstances one might need a set of Witches’ Kitchen Tools, but nonetheless they exist. Hand-carved from sustainably-farmed mahogany, the set includes a mixing spoon, a spork-like utensil, and a hand for some reason.

In yet another attempt to discourage the meat eater, Swiss collective Postfossil created a collection of housewares called “Trattoria Utopia“. Recently on display at the Milan furniture fair, part of the series includes a set of useless silverware consisting of round-tined forks and a dull unpolished knife — neither of which appears capable of penetrating warm butter, much less a NY strip.
And not unlike PETA’s less than subtle attempts to piss on the carnivore’s campfire, the impractical utensils were created merely as an attempt to discourage and provoke — not necessarily to be mass-produced and sold at Crate & Barrel.
