Secret Weapon: Grapefruit Spoon

by Gia16. July 2013 12:56

Secret Weapon is our series on products that can be used for purposes outside of their intended use.

At first glance, a grapefruit spoon is one of those extraneous tools that makes one task much easier, but I rarely eat halved grapefruits and I use a grapefruit spoon almost daily.

Here's 5 more tasks for your grapefruit spoon: 

  1. Core soft or hard fruits and vegetables
  2. Create decorative lines on cake icing or cookies
  3. Remove strawberry stems
  4. Scrape ice for granita or piragüa
  5. Use as a tiny side-of-bowl style strainer
