Don’t you think that, in 2019, humans have evolved enough to grill food on something a little more technological than a glorified stick?

Let’s get real with ourselves for a second: We are spending money on skewers at the grocery store that break in half, or break off little by little, causing mouth splinters. Why?

Right now, you can get a bundle of four kabob grilling baskets for $17. And unlike the typical skewers we’re all so used to using, they are made to survive the heat again and again.

Steel wire is woven together to create the baskets that can be filled with veggies, meats and more.

Not only are these baskets easier to flip throughout cooking, they’re also more efficient while plating. Instead of trying to use a fork to get a few chunks of a kabob off at a time, the baskets open all at once.

A happy reviewer wrote: “Very practical. Vegetables cook evenly and nothing falls into the grill. They are easy to handle and make shish kabobs that are perfect.”

Cleaning is just as easy — add some dish soap, rinse and dry.

“Very easy to use and clean,” one reviewer said. “Easier than putting meat and vegetables on skewers.”

Another simply put: “The only way to cook kabobs.”
