Set of four Stainless-Steel Sliding Skewers holding veggies and meat on a grill

If you enjoy grilling kabobs, you know what a challenge it can be to remove cooked food from the skewer. That's what makes these Stainless-Steel Sliding Skewers from William Sonoma so fabulous. Forged with the precision of fine cutlery in a square shape that prevents food from spinning when the skewers are turned, they also have a sliding disc that makes it easy to remove cooked foods - genius!

"The stainless steel sliding skewers are such a great product, I ordered another set. The skewers are substantial, able to hold large chunks of meat, but can also hold more delicate foods such as shrimp, scallops, fruits and vegetables. I like the ability to slide cooked foods off the skewer with s simple plush of the slider. The skewers are easy to clean." says JayhawkChef in their product review.
