Thread: Does anyone else use a granny fork?

  1. #1
    Janet Bostwick Guest

    Default Does anyone else use a granny fork?

    Or is it just me? A granny fork is about 7 inches long and has 2 or 3 sharp
    tines. Useful for holding hot potatoes for peeling or poking veggies to see
    if they are done.

    Generally only if I'm grilling. Didn't know that's what they are called

    We call it a carving fork, but yes, I have and use one.

    I prefer a chef's fork.

    Picked one up at a restaurant supply in LA several years ago.

    Generally, a carving fork is longer. Are you using the short fort or
    something about 10 inches long? The reason I'm asking is because it used to
    be a common thing to find in the kitchen area of the supermarket and I
    haven't seen one for year. Mine is about to pass away. I was able to find
    some at Amazon.

    Are you using the short fork or something longer for grilling? Have you had
    yours a long time? I'm having a hard time finding one in the stores around
    here. I'm going to have to go to Amazon or such.

    I have a couple of them. I've had them a long time. I had no idea they had
    a name. I find 'em useful to pull a roast out of the pan and putting it on
    the cutting board. I also use them to grill with.

    metal spoons like that, too.

    Start prowling around garage or estate sales. I got mine for a dime at a
    yard sale. Couldn't do without it now.
