Grapefruit Spoons! How to Choose?

shannonplus2October 26, 2007

I discovered how great are grapefruit spoons when I bought a couple at a flea market. I think they are a dying breed, from a bygone time when people had a separate utensil for everything! I guess no one uses them anymore, but they make grapefruit eating so easy! Also kiwi, avocado, and so many other fruits and vegetables.

So, I am looking for a full new set of grapefruit spoons. I decided I wanted brand new modern, rather than antiques I could find on eBay or flea markets. One issue with the flea market ones I have is that they are not ergonomic; they're thin and a little difficult to hold.

I am not sure what I am looking for though, and would appreciate any input from the experts on this Forum. I notice that some grapefruit spoons have the serrations on two sides, while some are serrated just on one side (like the Williams Sonoma set), but am not sure what difference that makes. Price is not a factor, since they are all pretty reasonably priced. Here are a few I found, but let me know if there are others that are best!:

Well, since no one responded to my posting on the Cookware Forum, I posted on the Cooking Forum, and received several nice responses. In order to move this post down the page on the Cookware Forum, and, in case anyone is also interested in grapefruit spoons, I am linking my other thread below.
