Gift Idea- Hand-Crafted Skewers

It’s never too early to think about Christmas gift ideas, and the internet has made shopping a wonderful convenience for consumers.

I heard about a family business called American Skewer Company from Karen Laszlo. She is half Armenian and half Italian and grew up eating and making a variety of foods from both nationalities. Karen is closest to her Armenian heritage and recently created a business and website selling skewers hand-crafted just as her grandfather did.

When you visit the website, you’ll learn that Karen’s Armenian side of the family emigrated to America, as did so many of our ancestors, and settled in the Detroit, Michigan area.

Karen’s background struck a chord with me. If you’ll recall, my father built shish kebab machines and skewers for home and church picnic use. My father is no longer with us, so, I was excited to hear of another Armenian family making skewers for the next generation of shish kebab cooks!
Karen invites you to visit her family’s website and order gifts of skewers for Christmas, weddings, graduations – or any occasion.

And while you’re at it, why not purchase a few skewers for yourself? Happy shopping!

  • I have three of these skewers and they are fantastic! They hold the meat and veggies without any annoying spinning.

  • A very timely post - I was lamenting to my sister that in a recent move, a lot of my kitchen stuff mysteriously disappeared, including my Shish Kebab Skewers! My millwright Irish Dad made them when I was a kid for my Armenian Mom - some square, some flat, some spiral - to make sure the food didn't spin when trying to turn them. Thanks for sharing.
