Grilling is usually an active endeavor. Sure, there are times when food is best left alone to cook low and slow over the heat, but sooner or later that food is going to need to be flipped. Or picked up with tongs. Or prodded with a fork. So it only makes sense that there should be one tool that can handle all of these tasks.

Enter the Stake 3-in-1 BBQ Tool. Combining a fork and a spatula with tongs, the multitasking grill gadget keeps grillers armed with whatever tool they happen to need. Closely resembling ordinary tongs, the barbecue tool hides a couple of secrets. When the handles are locked in place, the barbecue tool serves as a spatula. Better yet, with a flick of the switch a retractable fork pops out ready for action.

Grilling sessions are rarely completed without the picking up of and putting down of any number of tools and accessories. Aside from the obvious disadvantage of having more dirty dishes to attend to, all those utensils take up valuable next-to-the-grill space. And with all that increased efficiency that can only mean more burgers and dogs for the grill. Clearly, a win-win situation. Or in this case, win-win-win.
