Pickles aren't just having a moment or a year, it seems like pickles are having a decade. From waiting for Sonic's pickle slushes this summer to our discovery of all things dill pickle-flavored, we just can't stop seeing pickles everywhere. If we're not waxing poetic on the health benefits of pickle juice or drooling over moonshine pickles and whiskey pickles, we're eating pickles. And what's the most annoying thing about eating pickles? Not being able to reach the last few pickles at the bottom of the pickle jar. Say hello to the pickle jar fork, y'all.
I don't know about you, but the last thing I want to do when I'm craving a pickled snack is to dunk my hand into the jar of pickle juice just to pinch one mini dill from the bottom. Luckily, that's where this amazing condiment fork comes in.
So here is the deal, pickle lovers. You'll never have your condiment fork out of reach because it comes with a flexible silicone band that attaches to the rim of nearly any-sized jar. Giant mason jars, narrow olive jars, wherever you need it, this kitchen gadget is there. The convenient storage holster keeps the stainless steel fork tines in reach. The pickle fork caddy also catches pickle juice that drips from the fork, so you won't have to clean up your refrigerator. It's top-rack dishwasher safe.
None of the pickle jar forks on Etsy come with such a handy little holder, just saying.
The best part? It's so stinkin' cheap. If you're a Prime member, this is featured for free 2-day delivery. You can have your new fork in fewer business days than it took to brine the pickles!
Is this little gadget really necessary? If you want a clean refrigerator, eat pickles an awful lot, or find pickle juice everywhere when one of the family members goes dipping into the jar, then yes. It's an easy solution for faster pickle eating. In reality, you just don't have to dunk your hand in the jar or try to fit your fist inside to reach that last tiny floating pickle at the bottom.
Not just for pickles either, this is great for your favorite jalapenos or fermented products. You could use it on your sauerkraut jar, switch it up as an olive fork, or even attach it to a jar of your homemade condiments for easy use. Keep your kiddos' fingers out of the jars from now on with this 3-prong fork that's perfect for convenience. But don't take our word for it, check out these five Amazon customer reviews.
I don't know about you, but I've rummaged through all my kitchen utensils trying to find the perfect cutlery to get that last pickle. Even finding the tongs was a hassle. Nothing seems like an easy solution except for this innovative condiment fork! It's a wish list item for sure.
It has a tasteful design and you can use it with any size jar. Did I mention that it's only $8.99? Why wouldn't you get this condiment fork? Trust us, you won't be needing any return policy.
Now I need someone to find me an ice cream scoop that won't go missing.
