It’s hot, it’s summer, it’s grilling season—and Daily Grommet has found an inventive tool that will take your grilling prowess to new heights. Fire Wire skewers are everything that old grilling skewers aren’t. Traditional metal skewers are inflexible, they get too hot to handle, and it’s impossible to cook food evenly if stuff just spins around when you try to flip the metal rods. Wood skewers that splinter and require soaking before use aren’t any more convenient. But hold onto your hot sauce, Fire Wire really is different.
Made of stainless steel cable, Fire Wire skewers can literally bend to your cooking needs. You can shape them to fit inside a container for marinating (try doing that with rigid metal skewers), or twist them so they fit on your grill. If you load them strategically, you can organize vegetables and meats over the appropriate heat zones on your grill. The ends of the skewers stay draped over the edge of the grill, so you can turn your food with precision and without burning your hands. And when your feast is complete, just throw them in the dishwasher and enjoy the praise for your perfectly cooked kabobs.
