“ Brand: Tesco / Product Type: Plastic Cutlery „
We bought a pack of these and a tub on Ben and Jerry's cookie dough ice cream from Tesco as a treat part way through a long car journey. After getting to the till I realised we had nothing to eat the ice cream with, so ran to hunt for some spoons!
The Tesco Value Plastic Cutlery set comes in a pack of 24 (8 knives,forks and spoons). We only used the spoons, with the knives and forks being kept in the car for use at a later date.
The cutlery are white and plain looking, but they do the job of making it easier to eat than using your fingers very well! They are a good size, and can be used by adults and children easily. They have a bit of flexibility in them, so wont snap in half easily if bent.
We had no difficulty using them to eat our ice cream, they are fairly strong and they will definitely be used again! There are no sharp edges on the spoons (which can be found on some cheap cutlery, making it uncomfortable to eat) which is great.
At a cost of 45p per packet, even only using them once is good value (though not for the environment!), but they can also be washed and reused many times. The cost is under 2p a piece, which is a bargain for sticky finger saving gadgets!!
I award 5/5* as I see no problems at all with these.
They can be used for eating on the go, at barbecues or outdoor events, parties etc.
It was recently my sons third birthday and in true spirit we had a birthday party with about 20 other three year olds where we had a mixture of finger and non-finger food. We decided to use plastic cutlery because it would cut down on the washing up and also be a damn sight safer to allow a group of toddlers to throw across the room! The Tesco Value 24 Piece Plastic Cutlery Set costs just 45p from Tesco and this is just fantastic value in my opinion. Each packet contains 8 knives, 8 forks and 8 spoons - and therefore a complete set of knife, fork and spoon for one person cost just 5p. I don't think this would break anyones bank!
The cutlery is white and pretty boring looking, but in terms of its functionality is works pretty well. While the plastic is fairly thin, it is actually quite robust and while you can break the plastic cutlery if you should want to snap it, if you use it as intended then it stands up to standard use pretty well. The knives and forks were sharp enough to be useful but not dangerous, and the spoons are deep enough to eat ice-cream and yoghurt with.
They really are only designed to be used for one sitting and so we used them for the party and then binned them. To be honest, I think you could probably re-use the spoons again, but the knives and forks had really had it once used.
Overall, I think this set if good for a party or a picnic. They are cheap but they do the job well.
During the good weather we had last week, me and a few friends decided to have a barbeque, when we were shopping for meat and juice and everything we needed, I came across this plastic cutlery set and decided it would be good to buy them to save us from having to wash up later, we also god paper plates and plastic cups because we were too lazy to wash up.
This is a 24 piece set, so you get 8 knives, 8 forks and 8 spoons, there were 12 of us so we needed to buy 2 packets, but they were so cheap we got both packets for in around a pound altogether. The cutlery is plain and white and just looks like your basic plastic cutlery set.
I was really pleased with the quality of this plastic cutlery, usually when we buy plastic cutlery the forks in particular end up shattering before we are finished eating, though none of the cutlery set broke or shattered when we were using them. Each the forks, knives and spoons didn't bend easily when they were being used and they were durable enough to be used in barbeques and picnics.
You can buy these plastic knives forks and spoons for in around 50p from memory, they are very cheap, though I wouldn't want to spend much more on them as they can only be used once. I will definitely be buying them again as I think this is great value.
Overall I think that these are a great little bargain and perfect for the picnics and barbeques, they are sturdy and durable and are great quality compared to plastic cutlery I have used before, also they are fantastically priced and well worth it for a break on washing up. Overall I would give these 5 out of 5 stars.

I always keep plastic spoons in my kitchen for a variety of reasons, the main one being that I cant bear the taste of yoghurt and certain other foods on a metal spoon ( my mum is the same) and as I make yoghurt every few days and eat it at least once a day they are quite an essential. I always buy the cheapest ones I can find and usually Tesco Value fit the bill.
A packet of these cost just 45p for 25 spoons.
They come in a clear plastic pack which like all of the value range is very plain and basic. It has the Tesco Value logo on the front and informs the customer that the pack contains 25 plastic spoons which should be washed before using and are suitable for the dishwasher. Other than repeating this in several languages there is nothing else on the packaging.
The spoons are bigger than a regular teaspoon but not as big as a dessert spoon. They are not very strong and wouldn't dig into anything firm, the neck of the spoon is quite flimsy and would snap. Having said this though they are ideal for soft foods, yoghurt being one of them.
The main reason for plastic spoons / cutlery are really for parties and to save a lot of washing up and while these would be ideal for a party there's no reason why they need to be disposed of after just one use. They wash perfectly well in a bowl of soapy water and according to my mum they are fine in the dishwasher too and I have never had one stained from the food.
I use these because I'm a bit strange about certain foods on metal spoons but they would be ideal for anyone hosting a party or BBQ. I use them a lot in the summer when my niece and nephew come to stay and like to eat in the garden, if the odd spoon gets lost it doesn't really matter. They are also useful for picnics and seaside trips. I know its not very "green" to use plastic but they don't have to be disposable, they wash perfectly well and do last a long while. I have had my pack since before the summer and although a few have been broken and a couple used for digging in the sand I still have most of them.
If you need plastic spoons for any reason I would certainly give Tesco Value ones a try.
I bought this Tesco Value Cutlery pack for a family barbeque I had a couple of weeks ago. Being that there are only two of us in our household, we don't have an abundance of extra knives and forks, so we had to get something and this was the cheapest and easiest option.
They definitely are cheap, that's for certain. The pack contains 24 pieces - eight knives, eight forks and eight spoons - and will cost you a measly 45p. This works out less than 2p per item and makes me wonder just how they can make them so cheaply, the mind boggles. You can also buy the knives, forks and spoons separately in 24 packs for the same price, so if you only wanted one of them this is ideal. We found that we had loads of spoons left over, so I probably should have done this myself.
So for this price, they have to be pretty useless don't they? Well no actually. They are really good, much sturdier than other disposable cutlery I've used in the past. They didn't bend or snap like I'd worried they would, even when used to cut the slightly 'ahem' overcooked 'ahem' sausages that formed part of the meal. The knives were pretty sharp as well for plastic ones, so no problem cutting up food. Having said that, they certainly weren't sharp enough to cause any damage, so no worries about giving them to children to use.
They are a good size as well, actually just shorter than normal cutlery. I have often found that cheaper versions are smaller, but no so with these. They are designed too so that they fit in your hand nicely and are comfortable to use. They are all white and they don't come in any other colour, so maybe not so good for if you are wanting them to match a theme.
One problem I found with them is that they come in a simple plastic bag which isn't resealable so storing them if you don't use them all in one go is a bit of a nuisance. We have plastic cutlery all over our normal cutlery draw and they tend to get a bit battered and bruised amongst the other items. I think it would have been much handier if the bag was resealable, but it is only a minor issue.
Overall I would highly recommend these for parties and the like as they are good value for money, nice and sturdy and they do the job very well.
