I would also be interested in how it is regarding food or detergent odors.

Tupperware tends to hold onto detergent fragrances.

 

Pleased to report after some weeks of tomato products the MEPAL bowl cleaned up easily in the sink with but a little drop of Dawn.  No stain, no odors.  No need to use the dishwasher.

 

I did misspeak:  I believe my color is Nordic Blue, not Nordic Green.

Id never wear it

 

so he sent me a natural sharpening stone.

 

(I suspect as above.) Alas, if he sent a natural sharpening stone, I never use it.

Funny enough, I have a Aritsugu knife, that I hold very dear for a lot of reasons - and have never used …

I call this fun. At noon or just before, I took delivery of 24 cans of this Hong Kong brand of tonic water. The delivery wasn't in the least bit fun, but I know the resulting gin and tonic will be. I also know there are only 23 cans in my picture, but I had to test one, hadn't I?

That's breakfast sorted out for the next few days!

I also received 1.5 litres of bleach in the same delivery, but don't concern yourself with that.

I'll let you guess what these spades/shovels are intended for. It is culinary.

Dig out the fresh brains of live monkeys at banquets (as per Chinese culinary tradition) ?!

How can we guess without knowing relative size? They could be 4 feet long and used to dig a pit to cook a whole pig wrapped in banana leaves!

Much as it would amuse me to declare @KennethTthe winner, it can't be done. (By the way, I deliberataly didn't indicate scale. Didn't want to to limit anyone's imaginative musings!)

 

@ElsieDI'm sorry, but no. They are a bit larger than teaspoons.

 

@ShelbyYou could try, but you'd be there for days!

 

@paloAn incorrect statement.

 

@blue_dolphinis correct. They are sold as watermelon spoons, but could easily work for ce cream, too. Or yoghurt, etc.

I think they'd be very cute with one of the cakes or ice cream desserts served in little flower pots!

Or the dessert called Dirt!
