Why FranksSpoons?

Food waste concerns us all, as consumers we are even responsible for 42% of the total food waste in the Netherlands. This is where the question arose, why is so much food wasted? There are scales, cups and even measuring cups, but they are not used on a daily basis. This is something that concerned us at FranksSpoons and that we think should be changed.

This is how the first spoon was created. A spoon 2.0 to call it that. This spoon supports you in measuring your rice and various types of pasta. In addition, there are several features invented to make everything a little easier. For example, the spoon is easy to attach to any pan and keeps your sink clean and tidy. By giving extra thought to the design, the FranksSpoons takes everything out of the pan easily and this spoon lies comfortably in your hand. By a combination of measuring, stirring and scooping, you don't need any other spoons besides the FranksSpoons. The FranksSpoons are made of plastic so that, after intensive use and its long life, the entire product is recyclable.

How it works

The FranksSpoons are not here to tell you exactly how much to eat. Research has shown that rice and pasta is used too much when it goes into the pan uncooked. This is where FranksSpoons spoons come into play. By letting you always use the same spoon you know as a cook how much you are going to use. If you are going to start now or get your guests to eat, then you are assuming the average and you are always sitting well!
