The people in charge of naming kitchen stuff are either not very imaginative or else think people are stupid.
They seem to state the obvious:
ice cream scoop soup bowl
potato peeler tea spoon
butter knife ice pick
lobster fork coffee cup
dinner plate salad tongs
frying pan sugar bowl
drinking glass salt shaker
pizza cutter rolling pin
I’m glad they aren’t in charge of naming other stuff:
driving car money wallet coloring crayon hand pen communication phone cutting scissors
note: I’m all for “dundancy” and against “redundancy“. To reiterate, I am “anti-superfluous” and “pro- regularfluous”.
double note: if you hang knives and forks on a christmas tree are they “utinsels“?
triple note: if you hang knives and forks on a christmas tree are you cutting edge or just forked?
