When you lay out a place setting, your silverware lies on the table. Sure it’s generally on top of a napkin but the part that is going into your mouth is touching something other than your mouth or the plate. If you think that’s totally gross, check Heads Up Flatware, the silverware designed not to touch the table.
This silverware is crafted specifically to keep the part that touches your food from touching anything else. It sits on the table but is balanced so that the head of the flatware hovers above the surface, keeping it totally clean and germ free.
This may seem silly but even if the idea of it touching your table doesn’t completely gross you out, these may still come in handy. They will also keep a used utensil from getting food on napkins or tables when you sit them down. So even if you’re not germ obsessed, these still have some merit. The Heads up Flatware set is $117.25 for 20 pieces
