That lucky silver sixpence won't be so lucky if you chip a tooth on it, or swallow it and choke.
Enter the Metal Detecting Pudding Spoon. An induction coil in the bowl of the spoon connects to a control circuit near the end of the handle to provide a clear audible and visible warning when your spoonful
of pudding is found to contain any small metal objects. Adjustable sensitivity controls make the unit useful across a wide range of coin geometries and pudding permittivities.
A must-have for the seriously lucky pudding-eater!
