A skewer is a long piece of metal or wood that is used for holding pieces of food, typically meat and vegetables, together during cooking. These are commonly used when grilling or roasting small portions of food. They come in different lengths, from as short as 8 inches, to as much as 16 inches. They usually have oval ends, making them easy to handle. Some models have decorative ends. Most of them are sold in sets. They are made of heavy-duty stainless steel, making them durable and will last for years to come. Also, they are easy to clean. Some of their accessories include a skewer stand with a drip dish, so that cooked food may be hung on the stand until they are ready to be consumed the drip dish at the bottom catches any juices from the cooked food, keeping your table or workspace clean and mess free. These, and other kitchen tools like utensils, cookware, kitchen utensils, commercial kitchen equipment, cooking utensils, fruit skewers, chicken skewers, kitchen tools, kitchen essentials, bamboo skewers, and cooking tools, are available at most kitchen supply stores.
