I know they say a poor workman blames his tools, but I think a great workman appreciates them.
I think this is especially true for cooking, where the intention is to actually eat what you’re making with the tools.
Finding the right ones, however, is some of the hardest work there is.
Take the knife, for example. No kitchen or grill is complete without a knife. But which one should you choose? Is it sharp enough? Will it cut through thick meats? Is the handle antimicrobial? There’s a lot to consider.
And that’s just one tool!
Then you’ll need a spatula, and even that is hard to choose. Will it be able to flip heavy things as easily as thin slices? And what about that handle again — is it designed to feel balanced in your hand? There’s always more to it than you think.
I’m already feeling overwhelmed and we’re only on tool number two. I’m so incredibly thankful another chef-friend finally recommended something that could replace all of these tools in one easy handle, but that would also be effective enough to satisfy even her five-star restaurant tastes.
It’s called the FlipFork, and if you think cooking (and the clean up) could stand to be a little easier, you’re going to want to keep reading.
FlipFork makes grilling easier and more convenient than ever before. With 5 useful tools built-in one, FlipFork solves seemingly every grill need.
It’s just one perfectly balanced handle but it’s capable of performing everything from tenderizing to bottle opening, slicing and flipping.
Once you try it, trust me, you’re never going back to the days of grabbing five different things and then cleaning them all up.
The FlipFork is dishwasher safe, so you can just throw the one single piece into the dishwasher when you’re done.
You also don’t have to spend time and money buying so many different things! It’s finally all in one now.
There are five tools in total that are built into FlipFork. Depending on how creative you get as a chef, these five tools can let you do limitless things.
The five are:
And I tend to think of the handle itself as the 6th tool. It fits perfectly and confidently into your hand and is even antimicrobial.
I’d be willing to bet that most chefs would tell you their knives are their most important tool. Having sharp, effective knives is essential to any meal.
Chopping is often the most tedious part of the meal, and unfortunately, it’s also when most people tend to hurt themselves. But the FlipFork finally makes cutting both safe and enjoyable with an incredibly high-quality knife.
FlipFork’s knife really delivers. The blade was actually designed by an expert bladesmith and sharpened to his impeccable standards.
The blade is 3.5 inches, which is perfect for patties, chicken, veggies, or even a gigantic 42oz Porterhouse steak.
It’s also made entirely of stainless steel. Trust me, you don’t want anything else, especially at the grill.
There’s also no way you’d attempt grilling without a spatula. But it’s hard to find a spatula that can handle both the really heavy meats and the thinner slices of things like fish or vegetables.
More importantly, it has to be able to slide effectively underneath without leaving pieces of your food behind on the grill.
With FlipFork’s spatula, you’ll never struggle to flip an enormous piece of steak or a thin slice of grilled zucchini ever again. From now on, you can flip any and all sizes with this single tool using just one hand.
The FlipFork is also heat resistant up to 1,000 degrees, making it rust and corrosion-resistant. This is crucial to maintaining the quality taste of your food as you slide the spatula underneath.
It also keeps FlipFork in great condition and looking nice over time.
You probably could have guessed the FlipFork would have included a fork as well. This delicate prodder on the side of the FlipFork is perfect for when you want to gently roll, stab or poke things at the grill.
Need to peek inside to check the cook of the meat? Just use the fork.
The fork provides those nice precise flips for delicately thin meets.
Regular forks are too small to keep track of when you’re at the grill. It’s been really handy to have this connected fork to do the work for me instead.
The handle, as most chefs will also tell you, is incredibly important to how effectively you can use the tool.
The FlipFork did not mess around when designing the handle.
It has the most comfortable grip ever. It’s the only cooking spatula with an ergonomic Acacia Wood handle from the South Pacific. I swear it is one of the most comfortable cooking tools you will ever use. Even after hours of use, you won’t want to put this thing down.
It’s also super easy to clean. The premium wood finish on the handle means you can throw this thing right in the dishwasher! No more annoying clean up.
And did I mention it’s also antimicrobial? A nice way to keep your kitchen up to code.
Even though my friend doesn’t consider herself a griller per se, this tool helps her often in the kitchen as well. “It’s just so easy to use and clean up,” she told me, and I couldn’t agree more.
I’ve found myself both cooking and grilling at least twice as much since I got the FlipFork. I don’t find myself complaining about doing the dishes or having to buy expensive equipment that didn’t even work.
Finally, there’s something for beginners through experts alike to use and enjoy when they just don’t want to overcomplicate things anymore. Keep it effective and simple with FlipFork.
