Disposable Forks

Eating utensils such as forks make life easier whether consumers use them at home, at work, or dining out. They are available in assorted colors and are part of bowl, platter, and serving dish ensembles. Find these tableware products at Staples® along with other dining accessories such as tablecloths, napkins, and soup spoons.

Different Fork Materials to Suit Any Preference
Businesses such as restaurants and individuals use plastic forks once and then toss them. These convenient accessories, suitable for large gatherings, are available in shatter-proof designs and medium to heavyweight thicknesses. Families may prefer to use them for picnics and backyard barbecues to save time when cleaning up. Consumers that want to help preserve the environment's resources, purchase eco-certified flatware that decomposes naturally. These utensils, made from renewable resources, have strong handles and some brands withstand heat up to 200 degrees.

Stainless steel cutlery is durable, does not corrode, and resists scratches and stains. Some examples have pretty porcelain and ceramic handles. The metal tableware is available in place settings to include other utensils such as spoons, salad forks, and plastic knives. Large wooden implements may be part of a set used to toss a salad or mix flavorings into pasta.

Consider Some Ways Forks Are Used
Users need these utensils along with bowls and other dishes to serve food. In place of tongs, use a fork and spoon at the same time to dish up fresh salad. People use a fork to prong finger food such as cheese, small fruit like strawberries and mangoes, or pieces of broccoli and cauliflower. Bakers use it to press the edge of pie dough before baking to add a professional touch. A large fork shreds smoked pork into smaller pieces. Design peanut butter cookies by making ridges in the dough with the tines. Put the utensil to work holding place cards by putting each card between the prongs. Some people bend the prongs of metal forks to make photo stands or use them as kitchen cabinet handles and wall art.

How Do Manufacturers Package Forks?
Manufacturers may package the eating utensil in boxes or packages of 250 or more individual pieces. Resealable bags keep dirt and dust away from the products and are easily accessible by users. Individually wrapped pieces keep the forks clean.

What Colors Are Forks Available In?
With a large assortment of color choices available, consumers can pick utensils to coordinate with napkins, disposable plates, and cake cutters. Users can combine colored utensils such as black and red or purple and pink to add interest to the table. Multi-colored forks blend in with any decorating scheme. Some plastic utensils have the look of sterling silver and are an attractive choice for birthday and graduation parties.

Are Plastic Forks Dishwasher Safe?
These devices may survive the dishwasher, but manufacturers do not recommend that consumers reuse the product. Damage to the finish may encourage bacterial growth and harbor disease. A safe way to reprocess the used polystyrene utensils is to take them to a facility that recycles plastic.
