One of the main Food Workstation features is the versatile and easy to use clamp. The clamp can be used to hold a bowl securely which allows you to mix food without anymore spills.

The NELSON ROCKER KNIFE is designed to aid those who only have the use of one hand during meal times. The curved blade, that will cut most foods, works by using a simple rocking motion. Hence the name…. Rocker Knife. This little tool also features four little prongs on the end which allows you to ‘stab’ your food, therefore, this knife can also be used just as well as a fork.
Plates And Bowls

The divided sections help keep your portions in place and because of the edges, you are able to push your food towards the edges to pick up with your fork or spoon.
