I've had this big orange fork for a while, but I took it out for the first time tonight when I was browning some ground beef, the very task for which I purchased it. For me, browning ground beef requires cooking with a fork. A spoon just won't give the crumbled texture that a fork will. But cooking with a fork can really damage a non-stick pan, not to mention the wear and tear on a fork designed for eating.
Enter the Grill Friends Fork, definitely a true wish-I-had-thought-of-that find. The silicon exterior is wrapped around a substantial metal fork, making it comfortable, sturdy and easy to handle. It made quick work of crumbling the ground beef as it browned and looked none the worse for wear from the heat and grease. Wash-up was simple too.
I just love it when I find something new that is so handy and functional. The Grill Friends Fork is reasonably priced and would make a great gift for your favorite cook -- birthdays, Christmas, hostess gift, etc. I know a few people who will find one in their Christmas stocking this year.
