Two of these old forks came from my Granny's farm... one belongs to The Fan and the other is mine. With this magic fork, I don't really need fancy kitchen gadgets. It's true.
This old fork with its bent tines scrambles perfect eggs, flips bacon in the pan, makes perfect fluffy omelettes, helps dredge world-famous chicken fingers, cuts dry ingredients into wet mixtures, stirs nuts into the brownie batter and well, you name it.
