10 Weird Kitchen Utensils

Oh Snap Cheese Cutter

Oh Snap Cheese Cutter

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!

Finger Forks

Finger Forks

Finger Forks

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

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!

Zing! Spoons

Zing! Spoons

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.

Kitchen Bomb Timer

"Be Nice to Me or I'll Poison Your Food" Embroidered Apron

"Be Nice to Me or I'll Poison Your Food" Embroidered Apron

"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

Ouch Tooth Pick Holder

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

Baby Plane Feeding Spoon

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

Gun Egg Fryer

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!

Finger tongs

Finger tongs

Finger Tongs

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.

kashmir56 - for sure, these ones I found quite different and humorous, glad you liked the hub.

Candle Hour (author) from North America on March 02, 2012:

Kieran Gracie - that's true I would probably end up tackled to the ground by airport security and subjected to a strip search too, that would be bad.

Thomas Silvia from Massachusetts on February 29, 2012:

These were great fun kitchen utensils, I've never seen these before.

Vote up and more !!!

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 27, 2012:

writer20 - no worries, yeah it is pretty bad that she was 11, I guess I mostly feel bad for Mia Farrow, who lost her daughter, husband and now has to watch them together. Cut life can be very difficult sometimes I guess.

Glad you liked this one, I figured there would be some funny ones to make people smile/laugh. Thanks for reading

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 27, 2012:

hoteltravel - thanks for reading, yes they are pretty funny the bomb kitchen timer does remind me of something Wile E. Coyote would use :) Have a good one!

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 27, 2012:

jenubouka - yes even I think I might get the egg gun fryer if just to amuse my famiy with gun shaped eggs :)

Joyce Haragsim from Southern Nevada on February 27, 2012:

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 27, 2012:

hawkdad73 - hehe well there are some pretty interesting utensils here :)

hoteltravel from Thailand on February 27, 2012:

Great collection of weird products. As you have pointed out, Oh Snap Cheese Cutter and Bomb Kitchen Timer are straight out of Road Runner Show. Kids would love Springy Food Fighting Spoons. Apron and toothpick holder are perfect for those with a sense of humor. Others look ridiculous, but am sure there are people willing to buy them. Voted up and interesting.

jenubouka on February 27, 2012:

These kitchen utensils are fricken awesome! Great gag gifts for sure, my fave is the apron. And the egg gun, the man of the house would enjoy that for sure!

seoendra from India on February 27, 2012:

it one is superb:)

lupine from Southern California (USA) on February 26, 2012:

terrektwo--interesting stuff, some made me laugh, some just not my style, I would use the toothpick holder as a joke, but I would never want to use the mousetrap cheese cutter... it's just gross! I do respect that everyone has their own taste.

RTalloni on February 26, 2012:

Funny and tempting stuff to highlight in a hub. :)

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 26, 2012:

monajoel13 - I know what you mean, would be an interesting kitchen!

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 26, 2012:

Julie Jensen - thanks a lot :) I found it interesting, figured others would like them. The mousetrap cheese cutter was my fav!

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 26, 2012:

amberld - hehe, a friend of mine was saying that is what she wanted to do to her Ex. I laughed. Thanks for commenting :)

hawkdad73 from Riverside, Iowa on February 26, 2012:

Funny thing is, I actually want most of the items listed. Thanks for the laugh.

monajoel13 from it's a secret...shhhh... on February 26, 2012:

Love this article. I want like over half of those things in my kitchen. Yes! I love it.

Julie Jensen from New Orleans on February 26, 2012:

So clever! Interesting article.

Amber White from New Glarus, WI on February 26, 2012:

My favorite is the toothpick holder! fun hub, thanks!

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 26, 2012:

SilentReed - yes I guess you wouldn't want to keep the mousetrap cheese slicer with real mousetraps. You might end up with a mousetrap instead, that could be bad. Glad you enjoyed the article, I found them pretty funny and figured I'd share :)

SilentReed from Philippines on February 26, 2012:

I love those cheese cutters, as long as I don't put them with the real mouse trap. I'm sending a dozen of those springy spoon to my nosy neighbor who have many kids. The apron looks good on me when I cook for my mother-in-law. Finally, the finger forks for my wife, useful in our bedroom foreplay. Thanks.:)

Candle Hour (author) from North America on February 26, 2012:

sgbrown - yes I found the mousetrap cheese slicer pretty funny and the Darth Vader toaster :) Glad it made you laugh!

Sheila Brown from Southern Oklahoma on February 26, 2012:

Hah! There are some good ones here! I like the mouse trap cheese slicer, myself! Thanks for sharing these with us! Voted up and funny! :)
