Dinosaur Chomp

Pasta scoop & tongs

The act of scooping up pasta is inefficient because it is hard to keep all the pasta on a regular pasta spoon without most of the pasta falling. The concept was to design a playful kitchen utensil that was efficient at scooping, draining, and serving pasta. 



While ideating I was thinking about different ways people scoop and serve pasta. The spoon is ineffective because it has only one surface and therefore can’t grab onto a lot of pasta while a clamp is more effective and can grab more.


For the 3D sketches I wanted to create a purpose and balance for the playful form of the pasta clamp therefore the legs act as a stand and the teeth act as a grip.
