Winter has recently passed and we have now entered spring. Pretty soon, summer is just around the corner which means more outdoor activities to partake in! What a better activity than spending time at the park with family and friends through sports, games, and especially barbecue! Grilled meat, hot dogs, kebabs, burgers, corn on cob, you name it, they will all be there and the possibilities of foods are endless! Various foods do call for various tools to be used and sometimes, it can be a little inconvenient to gather each tool for the job.
I imagine that as the cook, one would need at the very minimum a spatula and tongs for grilling and flipping the meats. Depending on the quality of the tongs, the foods may slip off them due to the weight and grease. Some type of fork would be essential as well for holding the foods in place to allow for cutting. When your arms are tired, you will probably want to set the tools down so your arms can rest. Unfortunately, now you have to worry about the tool being contaminated. Who knows what microbes could be living on the table surface! (Click here to read about microbes!).
Is there a way to minimize having to obtain so many types of tools for the job! You bet there is!
Tool to Help Make Grilling Easier

Rather than obtaining each tool for the job separately, wouldn’t it be better if all those tools came in one package such as the TNK Stingray 7 in 1 BBQ Grill Multitool? By purchasing this tool, not only will you have 7 tools in one, but you would essentially free up your other hand to do other tasks. You are like a one man army chef running a restaurant!
Some details about the multitool: the tool is about 16 inches in length. It is made of stainless steel and the grip has rubber pads for easier handling.
What are the 7 Function of this Multitool?
- Toothed tong (allows for finer grip of slippery or heavy foods)
- Launch control (To release the food stuck to the fork)
- Curved Spatula (So that it will not touch the table surface and get dirty)
- Bottle Opener
The only other essential thing that this 7 in one multitool does not come with is a cutting tool like a knife. Because most of the other tools you need can be found in one, you now have a free hand to do other things. You can cut the meats, hold a plate, drink a beverage, or even talk on the phone!
There is a ringed structure at the opposite end of where the 7 tools are. When you grip the tool and pull on that ring, it will lock the tool in place. Whenever you need it again, just push on that ringed structure and the tool will open back up for use.
Knowing me and my crazy ideas, you can probably sharpen one side the spatula (not the toothed tong side, of course) to become a knife and you can essentially create 8 tools in one. However, you will still need another tool to hold the meat down in place to cut so perhaps it might not be the best route to take. Just an idea.
A time of barbecue is what everyone needs during summer. As the cook, it can be a little inconvenient to find the right tools for each cooking job. But with the 7 in one multi tool, that should no longer be an issue. You now have a free hand to do other tasks like cutting up the meat once cooked or talk on the phone. Pretty convenient I would say.
Although barbecue is a great time to spend with family and friends, the issue of COVID-19 is still around. Therefore, please remember to take extra care to protect yourself and your loved ones by practicing social distancing, wearing a mask, and maintain good hygiene! Other than that, please enjoy your future barbecue time with loved ones!
