Kabobs are probably one of the greatest food inventions of all time. Without them, we would be forced to enjoy our grilled veggies, fruits, meats, and legumes separately in less adorable piles on our plate. Its almost too dreadful to even imagine. Luckily, skewers were invented and we no longer had to endured such things. Now we can layer, grill, and present our food in ways that make our mouths water and impress our friends one grilled kabob at a time.
Yet if you’ve ever cooked with skewers before, you may have noticed one small, irritating thing. The foods you layer tend to move all over the place. Around and around they go! Some also get too hot to handle after being on the grill long enough to cook your food. Luckily, someone took note of these annoying features and remedied them. In fact, skewers come in all shapes, sizes, and finishes. Some even come flavored!
So if you love kabobs for their versatility and ability to add a little health to your table, chances are you are going to love these skewers too. They’ll add a little extra flare to any dinner table this side of the grill.
The Flat Skewer
Not only will the flat shape of these skewers help prevent your food from sliding and spinning, they are also FLAVORED! These scented wood skewers can come in cedar, hickory, maple and alder ash varieties to give your kabobs a little extra somethin’ somethin’.
The Rounded Skewer
If you’re looking for some major plate appeal, then you need these skewers. They add a touch of class to any grilled meal and your onion chunks, squash wedges, and zucchini slices are much less likely to slide around on these curve-shaped skewers. They also come in two sizes for small and big appetites alike.
The Flexible Skewer
The true benefit to these skewers is how versatile they are. Many veggies, fruits, mushrooms, and meats can be added to this skewer string. You can also better fit these skewers into a plastic baggie filled with marinade for enhanced flavor.
Although these skewers can be found in a variety of locations, we’re pretty excited to announce that they will soon be available in thePlate Boutique! Keep an eye out for these and many other healthy grilling accessories hitting our store shelves soon!
