I really, really dislike single use cooking tools. As Alton Brown says the only single use tool in your house should be a fire extinguisher and I agree.
I recently received a popsQtool from popsQtool.com and it’s a great multipurpose tool for backyard cookers. The two laser cut utensils combine a spatula, fork, serrated knife, bottle opener and grill cleaner. When the fork and spatula sections are joined, the two tools become tongs. How can you go wrong with that combination? Six tools in one!
Another neat feature is they will customize your tool with your name (or whatever you want on the handles) at no charge. The blades can also be customized with logos or other information at a small charge.
Dylan Rothwell of Salt Lake City, Utah created popsQtool after watching his father cook with less than efficient grilling tools for many years. Since he had a full metal working shop to manufacture fishing tools, (risingfish.net), it was relatively easy to make a 304 stainless steel BBQ tool for his dad. It is available in 15 and 18 inch lengths… I recommend the 18-inch size just to keep your hands away from the flames.
Made in the USA with American products the popsQtool is well worth the $49.99 for the 15-inch model or $59.99 for 18-inch version. The product has an unconditional warranty. As Dylan says: “If you are not happy with our gear at any time for any reason, get in touch with us – we will make it right.” That’s customer service I like. More information is at their website.
