Introducing the Dine Ink Pen

Ever felt rather self-congratulatory about bringing in your own packed lunch, only to find the office kitchen is out of forks? Or run out to Pret to ‘browse’ the sandwiches/steal their plastic cutlery (we’ve all been there, we won’t judge) in a moment of hungry desperation? Then this news is about to make you exceedingly happy.

Whilst we shouldn’t condone eating at your desk (lunchbreaks should be taken outside, after all), sometimes you need to multi-task, and file a report/shop for holidays online whilst eating your salad. Step forward the Dine Ink desk utensils – a set of biros with a convenient eating utensil built into the lid. Use to write notes in a meeting, eat your lunch, then simply wash the lids, pop back on the pen and slide into your drawer for the next meal.

Our major concern was whether the cutlery would be sturdy enough to hold a forkful of food (what if you have a hefty box of pasta or tough piece of meat to eat? Our plastic forks have broken in our mouths before) but a review on Amazon says the Dine Ink pens are “Sturdy and well made…and can stand up to the heaviest spoon-full”.

That cleared up, we have two pieces of advice:

1) Keep out of chewing reach. If our desk collection of biros is anything to go by, your Dine Ink cutlery will be as handy as a fork in a bowl of soup if you start chewing the lid.

2) Don’t bring into a meeting: Because you will get strange looks, especially if you start waving the knife around, and you might stab yourself in the eye with the fork in a moment of frustration.

Dine Ink Cutlery is available from the (American) Fred & Friends store on amazon.com. Here's hoping these come over to the UK soon.
