Tired of washing your spoons? Well, you could try eating them instead. That's exactly what the Edible Spoon Maker is designed to let you do.

The device was created by Brooklyn-based designer Anatoliy Omelchenko, who previously brought us products such as the iBamboo iPhone dock.

Users start with a third-party dough (store-bought or homemade), use an included cookie cutter to cut that dough into four spoon-shaped pieces, then place those pieces in the Spoon Maker's four non-stick spoon molds.

They then close the Spoon Maker's cover, set it going, and within three minutes will have a nicely-baked set of edible spoons. The utensils are reportedly crisp/strong enough to use with foods such as salads, soups, or desserts.

Omelchenko tells us that the device should sell for approximately US$25, once it reaches stores. Interested parties can register for updates, via the first of the links below.

I hope they design it so that some of the "extra" dough get made into chop stix's...

Kudos on the price point for this wacky idea, Anatoliy. I see this being bought for kids everywhere for Christmas.

YOUR KIDDING RIGHT!! How many seconds does it take to wash a spoon, maybe 20 by hand with soap, 5 seconds when loaded into a dishwasher. So could one be so lazy that you spend $25 on this device, more time or money to buy or make the dough, then after 3 minutes you have an edible spoon. Too bad you still have to clean up the device, plate, & counter that you prepared this on not to mention the utensils you used to prepare the rest of your meal... Wait, add a fork, knife & plate feature and just eat the table setting for lunch, throw in a desert napkin, & maybe a few peppermint toothpicks....

This is a really cool idea even though Bob just thinks everyone always has water and or a dishwasher.....I go to the National Rainbow Gathering where it would be really cool to have a few dozen of these spoons made up in advance......I'd carry a few in my pack each time I left my base camp!! Great Idea!!.....LOL :-)

This is not a original idea. An Indian inventor already did this in 2011. This guy has even patented this tech. Wish he could comment on this. Source: http://www.scoopwhoop.com/Indian-Company-Making-Edible-Cutlery/
