Ikea Akut Utensil Set
Advantages: cheap, good quailty
I bought this Ikea Akut kitchen utensil set as a short term stop gap set of kitchen utensils. All of our stuff was in storage between moves and I needed some cheap basics to tide us over, kitchen utensils being one of those basics.
This is just a very simple 3 piece plastic kitchen utensil set consisting of a spoon, a fork and a turner. All of the items are in black plastic, and they are dishwasher safe. The Akut kitchen utensil set is available for the bargain price of just 70 pence for all three items.
The three items in the set are actually quite short and squat, they have very short handles. I had initially thought that this might make them a bit awkward to use, but it's actually the opposite. I find that the short handles make them really easy to use and really comfortable to use.
The kitchen utensils are each made from one piece of moulded plastic, they dont have a seperate 'handle' attached (if that makes sense!).
The utensils have holes in the handles to enable you to hang them up if you wanted to.
The spoon is quite a shallow spoon, and isn't suitable to use as a serving spoon as such, but is more than adequate as a cooking utensil. The fork has three prongs to it, and all of the prongs have flat square edges. The turner has quite a small surface area but will turn most things with ease; burgers pancakes, steaks etc, it has 3 wavy 'airholes' on the surface of the turner, it's not a solid surface.
The kitchen utensils are suitable for all pan types, especially non-stick as they are plastic, you don't need to worry about the utensils scratching your pans at all. They are made from a very sturdy plastic and I've never had any warp or go out of shape at all. Also they wash well, they never have any odours or stains clinging to them at all.
I've been actually really really impressed with this little set of kitchen utensils, and I have continued to buy the set from Ikea whenever mine is ready for replacing. I initially bought the little set as a stop gap set, but now I use them all the time as my main kitchen utensils. They are so cheap to replace at just 70 pence for the set, and I've even picked up the pieces seperately in the 'As Is' section in Ikea for just 10 pence each. I always have 2 sets on the go, as I do always tend to use everything in the kitchen when I cook. My huband always jokes that I'm the only person he knows that can use virtually everything in the kitchen to make beans on toast!
