Floater Cutlery Won’t Sink In Your Sink

By Andrew Liszewski

While I like this clever cutlery design by Seongyong Lee that adds a bulbous ‘float’ to your forks, knives and spoons so that they won’t sink to the bottom when doing dishes, the more I look at it, the more it seems like a solution looking for a problem. I mean I honestly can’t say that sunken cutlery has ever been a real problem for me. I think one time I might have nicked a finger on a sharp knife while blindly fishing around in the sink, but that’s pretty much it. In fact the only time I think this might actually be handy is if you were doing dishes in a swimming pool, or any container/body of water that was deeper than your arms could reach.

And while the Floater cutlery is just a concept at this stage, Seongyong has made a working prototype you can see in action in the video I’ve included after the jump.

    That floating ladle is a really good idea. That prevents the for guests to stick their hands into a bowl of punch to retrieve a ladle that someone may have dropped.

    My mom would be amazed to receive this floating ladle as a birthday gift. But then I'm also thinking of buying her the MyCuppa Coffee Mug I found at http://www.crazyaboutgadgets.com. She loves the kitchen so anything that has to do with kitchen or food will be a better idea.

    The floating ladle is awesome, what a great item. Definitly a good thing to have floating around in the punch bowl :)
