Mangia! Travel Utensil set
Mangia! Travel Utensil set

Special to The Miami Herald

For those of us whose packing includes a just-in-case stash of dining utensils, here’s an excellent alternative to raiding the kitchen drawers or making due with those awful plastic knife, fork and spoon sets you get at carry-out places. Zelco offers, instead, Mangia! — a lightweight stainless steel flatware set made to be mobile. The fork and spoon nest together inside a slot in the knife handle. A sturdy plastic snap-on cover holds the combo firmly in place, and keeps the business end of the utensils clean in transport and storage (only the knife handle is left exposed), so the utensils can always be kept clean and accounted for. The sets are available with white, green, black or red plastic covers. Why not get a different color for each member of your traveling group? Mangia! is available in single sets of three nestling utensils or, at a bit of a discount, as a pack of six sets. They’re great picnic provisions to keep in the car — or to distribute to friends and family on the same or different journeys. Mangia means “eat” in Italian, of course, and now you can, anywhere.

Mangia! Travel Utensil set is $14; six-set pack $79; at
