10 Funny Kitchen Utensils
Oh Snap Cheese Cutter
Well short of a real mousetrap this is the next best thing to keep those pesky mice away from your cheese. If they've seen the real traps they are bound to make a run for it. This cheese cutter complete with cutting board that looks like the platform of a mouse trap and cutter section that looks like the metallic snapping part of the trap is a great conversation starter. You may also feel the urge to pull your fingers away while cutting cheese out of fear of snapping your fingers. But no need to worry, it's harmless. If you like this idea as either a fun item to own or a gift feel free to check out some available to buy on Ebay below!
These forks, even though I don't know why, go on someones fingers. While I know that there may be a specialized use for these "finger forks" I could not help but laugh when I first saw them and knew that others would laugh too. Or maybe you are dying to rush out and buy yoursef a pair of these? Either way that are a good one to note in this category!
Star Wars Toaster
So if you want to wake up in the morning and have a little slice of Darth Vader this is the toaster for you. The plate inside the Star wars toaster will leave an imprint of Darth Vader's evil face on the front of each toast. Quite an interesting, inventive and novel idea. I can see many of these toasters may be purchased by those that are in love with star Wars. Or maybe just someone looking for a gift that is a little off the wall. This toaster makes a great gift, check below for some that are available on Ebay right now!
Bomb Kitchen Timer
You may be a bit worried when you "arm" this timer, at least sub-consciously but it is a great gag timer that will get everyone talking. Seemly styled after a silly version of a cartoon bomb. Something out of the Road Runner or Bugs Bunny. I can just imagine Wile E. Coyote using one of these babies in another of his nefarious schemes to try to bring down the Road Runner! Now you too can own one of these. If you like this idea check out some of the ones on sale on Ebay below!
Springy Food Fighting Spoons
These spoons have a springy handle and are just right for flinging that piece of broccoli across the table at an unsuspecting victim. One thing to keep in mind when using these spoons is that you may want to wait until you eat out at a picnic table to use them. This way you won't be cleaning tuna casserole of of your walls. Best to wait until you have a family barbecue or get together and then stand back and watch the food fly.
"Be Nice to Me or I'll Poison Your Food" Apron
At least this way no one can say you didn't tell them. The "Be Nice to Me or I'll Poison Your Food" Apron is the perfect gift for the anyone that is responsible for the evening dinner or just likes to cook in general. It can certainly keep dinner guests on their toes as well. You know better than to say anything bad about the cook with a written message like this on their chest.
Ouch Tooth Pick Holder
While many superstitious people may say this one is a little bad I couldn't help but laugh. A little man that acts as a tooth pick holder! Sure he may look like he was shot with a pile of arrows in some half forgotten medieval war but keep in kind it is a novelty item. Something that adds a little character to your kitchen and again can be a conversation piece when you really need to start one If you enjoyed this one check out some of them for sale on Ebay right now below!
Baby Plane Feeding Spoon
With this novelty spoon, "Here comes the airplane!" takes on it's true meaning. This spoon meant for feeding your baby is actual shaped like an airplane. I have seen it in blue and pink so you have a choice of either. It is more likely to keep a baby entertained as you feed them as they can see that it is an airplane. Also it is like combining play time with eating in his or her mind because the spoon reminds them of their toys.
Gun Egg Fryer
This one is a real novelty item. I can only imagine those that want to wake up to bacon and eggs but only their eggs shaped as a gun! It is rather silly but to each his or her own I suppose. It seems there are several of these in different styles from a six shooter to an automatic rifle. You are sure to get some looks from your family when serving them breakfast. If you like this idea and want to try something a little bit different check out the ones for sale on Ebay right now below!
Like the Finger Forks I am sure there is some specialized need for these. From what I've seen in pictures it appears they are used primarily for picking up very hot items when serving dinner. Still they do look a little odd and laughable.
