Types of Spoons, Forks, and Knives

There are different types of spoons for serving or eating different kinds of food. The forks often accompany spoons or help independently to pick food bites. The knives are used to portion the food.

Dinner Spoon and Fork (Table Spoon and Fork) − It has elongated round cup. It is used to eat main course food items. It can pick up just the right amount of rice, stew, or curry. It is always paired with a fork (with four tines) of the same length or a dessert knife.

Dessert Spoon, Knife, and Fork − These are smaller than their main course peers and are used to have desserts.

Fish Fork and Knife − The knife blade has a curved sharp edge, perfect for sliding between the skin and flesh of the fish. ... Fish forks (and knives) often have an incurve shaped form.

Tea/Coffee Spoons − These are smaller than the dessert spoon in length and size of cup. We use these spoons to stir tea or coffee.

Serving Spoon − It is a spoon with large round cup designed to serve stews and rice.

Soup Spoon − It has a round cup bigger than that of the table spoon. It is as long as a dinner spoon.

Meat Carving Fork and Knife − It is the largest fork. It has longer and stronger tines that help to hold and pick large meat or vegetable pieces.

Salad Fork − It helps mixing and serving salad efficiently.

Cocktail (Soda) Spoon − It is a drink spoon with a long handle that helps the spoon to reach the bottom of a tall glass.

Cake Spatula − It is a flat, elongated triangle-shaped knife and is used to cut pieces of cake and handle it smoothly.
