Meatballs are delicious! However, it can be a hassle to make, especially when you have an entire kilogram or more of meat to form into tiny balls.

This spoon doubles as both your meatball former as well as your cooking spoon! To use it to make meatballs, just press the hole down into the meat and the meat should pop right out, creating a perfect ball. Scoop it out with a spoon and you have an instant meatball!

The garlic will squeeze its way through the holes. Instant minced garlic!
