    Why have sporks not replaced spoons and forks?! It seems like it would be more economical to have one utensil instead of two. Also, cut down on dishes...

    Or we could all just use chopsticks. They're cheaper and easier to produce.

    Yep, but don't buy large packages of bamboo chopsticks, that's wasteful. *finger wag at nobody in particular* I like the stainless steel ones.

    I hate picking up grains with chopsticks (e.g. rice, couscous, whatever). Spoon OR fork is more functional there.

    That said, I like the deep spires of a fork for picking up a big bite of a salad. I think a spork is inferior for that. Ditto a big chunk of meat... although slow cooked meat probably works fine.

    Yeah, don't buy the disposable ones. The stainless steel ones are cool, but I find them too heavy and unwieldy. I like the pointed-end Japanese ones.

    These are cool. I want some of these.

    In my experience, sporks don't work well as spoons OR forks. The tines are too short to really grab anything, and the fact that there are tines at all means it doesn't hold liquid well.

    Unless the spork is redesigned, it'll probably remain the way it is now: niche, but with a cult following. Like many other ill-advised hybrids (e.g. the keytar and the mullet).

    Very cool, and they look like they have some grip. I guess with the stainless, I just like treating my chopsticks like anything else in the kitchen, not have to worry about them being all woody and stuff.

    I think a fork & spoon on either end of the utensil might make more sense. Just lick it clean before turning it around .... and wash your hands ;-)
