Having just visited my friend who gave birth a month ago, I can appreciate the need to do things with one hand. So I took a look at the Snapi.
The concept is a good one: a one-handed food scooper. But have you heard of tongs or a spoon? Aren't they one-handed as well?
Are tongs so inappropriate in this situation?
They say the Snapi can be used at buffets, salad bars, catering and other uses. When I go to a buffet, though, it's usually pretty easy to grab the utensil in the container. What if the Snapi fell over? Then it would be goopy on one side. It would sit like a clam shell immersed in sauce. And though buffet serving utensils are rarely fancy looking, the Snappi is made of plastic, which just brings it down a notch.
In case you're wondering, Snapi retails for $6.95.
