People who like to moderate the amount of salad dressing they encounter on their salads are often seen dipping the fork in the small container of dressing supplied on the side before taking a bite of salad on that fork.
This process can now be automated with the salad dressing dispensing fork.
utensil has a small reservoir mounted on the handle, and a tube leading from the reservoir to the fork tines.
Between the reservoir and the tube there is a small pump button, similar in design to those found on bottles of hand lotion.
The user spears (or shovels - technique varies by user and salad type) some salad on to the fork tines, and then pumps a metered dose of dressing.
