Comments: The Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers solve a number of problems that crop up when you want to make shish kebabs or otherwise grill food cut into pieces.

This flexible cable allows you to use the space on your grill more effectively. Drape the ends of the skewers over the edges of your grill so that they stay cool, and you can pick up the ends and turn the meat and vegetables over without resorting to tongs and spatulas. With a cable length of 22 inches, each skewer holds more than twice as much food as most straight skewers.

You can also marinate your kebabs in a bag while skewered, helping save space in your refrigerator or cooler, and allowing you to do the prep work in your kitchen and travel to a remote location with already skewered skewers. The tips are blunted, so you won’t have to worry about anyone stabbing themselves (or the cook), or poking through a marinating bag. Finally, the skewers won’t rust or burn because they’re made of stainless steel, and they are dishwasher safe.

The FireWire skewers will not work magic, however. You’re still working with food, some of which gets very tender when it cooks, so you will still have to use care in turning them, especially if any food has started to stick to the grill.

You can also purchase Fire Wire marinating kits, including an herb blend by Urban Accents and a marinating bag. The manufacturer intends to have them widely available in supermarkets.
