Ustensiles are hand-held objects that assist with work or activity, often for cooking and eating. Some are designed to be used by a single person, while others are intended for use by a group of people (such as a spoon or fork). Utensils may also be categorize according to the material they are made from, using suffixes such as “ware”: earthenware, utensils of clay; silverware, utensils made of silver; glassware, utensils made of glass; and so on.
A frying pan is an example of a cookware utensil. Other utensils include a pot, a pan handle, and a strainer. Utensils may be made of metal, ceramic, or plastic, and can range from very small to very large in size. They may be shaped like a cup or spoon, with handles on the side, or they may be elongated and flat, with the end on the bottom.
A cooking utensil is an object used for the preparation of food in a kitchen. It can be a dish, a pan, or other container used for boiling, braising, and baking. Other utensils are used to handle food when it is being eaten: these include cutlery, which are tools for preparing and eating meals; as well as dishes, which are containers for serving food. Cutting down on car trips, refusing disposable utensils with takeout, and growing your own vegetables are all miniscule drops in the bucket when it comes to reversing the effects of greenhouse gases and deforestation.
