When you think about roasting hot dogs or marshmallows over an open fire, as you might do on a camping trip, you probably picture someone holding a rustic looking stick with which they have skewered their goodies. I know that this is what I picture, probably due in large part to what I saw on cartoons as a kid. On those cartoons, there would almost always be one person with a multi-branch skewer that could hold five times as much as everyone else’s did. I never got to use any rustic looking branches to toast my marshmallows as a kid, even when I was camping (probably just as well, as who knows where a branch you’d find at a campsite has been) and had a more utilitarian skewer instead. But this set of stainless steel Branch Skewers would let me relieve that childhood fantasy of grilling a dozen marshmallows at once with a tree branch – but in a much more modern way.
The Branch Skewers come in a set of two, and their short prongs allow for more even cooking when you’re using them on a grill, while their long handles will keep your hand a safe distance from the fire when you’re toasting marshmallows. They’re dishwasher safe, so they’re easy to clean and reuse – and they also look a bit cooler than your average skewer on top of that! One last point: I can’t tell you how many times I’ve skewered myself accidentally while loading up straight steel skewers, and these are a bit safer to load up by comparison, too.
