Dreamfarm is a young Australian kitchenware design company that makes useful gadgets and tools that solve everyday problems and make everyday tasks easier. They sent me two kitchen utensils to review: clongs (bottom) and a supoon (top).

Top: supoon, bottom: clongs


Jac’s always on the lookout for good tongs and was especially keen to give the clongs a good try in our kitchen.

The clongs are stainless steel tongs with a unique kink in the handle that lifts their tips, keeping the kitchen counter surface clean and your food hygienic.

Clongs sit up off the counter

They are very easy to use and click-lock open or shut with one hand and the click of a button. Jac found click-locking the clongs against her hip just as effective.

Click-click! Clongs

We both agreed they feel great in our hands and are nice and sturdy with just the right amount of spring.

Clongs in my hand


  • Winner of the international Red Dot Design Award 2010
  • RRP: AU$24.95 – 9-inch (22.9cm) and AU$29.95 – 12-inch (30.5cm)
  • Colours: Charcoal or Fire Truck
  • The silicone tips are safe to use on non-stick cookware and are heat resistant to 260°C/500°F
  • The clongs pictured are the 9-inch ones. The 12-inch ones would be much better for barbecuing
  • Dishwasher safe (top shelf) – we’ve used and washed our clongs in the dishwasher a number of times now and they still look as good as new


Like the clongs, the supoon has a kink in its handle that lifts the tip of the dirty spoon away from the kitchen counter. You can use it for all the things you’d use a spoon for – stirring, mixing, tasting, serving and scraping.

The supoon really does sit up off the kitchen counter. We’ve used it with spaghetti sauce, curry, mashed potato, chicken casserole and so far it has left no mess on the counter. We haven’t used it with very thin sauces yet but with everything we have used it with, the food/sauce seems to cling nicely to the silicone spoon tip without any drips.

In the supoon are handy tablespoon and teaspoon measurement guides, which I think is a pretty nifty feature. You can measure ingredients in the supoon then stir them straight in.

  • RRP: AU $14.95
  • Colours: Charcoal, Fire Truck or Steel Wool
  • The silicone tip is safe to use on non-stick cookware and is heat resistant to 260°C/500°F
  • Dishwasher safe (top shelf) – we’ve used and washed our supoon in the dishwasher a number of times now and it still looks as good as new

Both the clongs and supoon have an excellent build quality – they are lightweight but still feel solid, sturdy and really nice in our hands. And they’re rather stylish – I’m all for good-looking kitchen tools that match the decor of our house and kitchen.

Dreamfarm products all have original names which could be a disadvantage as you wouldn’t necessarily know what they are (or what they do) by what they’re called – for example, other product names include: smood, chopula, teafu, vebo and chobs. Jac kept forgetting what the supoon was called and kept calling it “your fancy new spoon”. :D

Clongs and supoon in action

I took some photos of the supoon and clongs in action recently when Jac cooked spaghetti bolognese for dinner. So here’s the supoon being used to stir the onions as Jac fried them in the wok (yes, she made spaghetti sauce in the wok!).

Frying onions for bolognese sauce - using the supoon

It was a very simple spaghetti sauce, just how I like it – with tomato, onions, garlic, beef mince, tinned champignons, seasoned with salt and pepper but with no added herbs whatsoever. Initially, I had thought the supoon would feel funny to use because of the bend in the handle, but I got used to it pretty quickly and it feels just like any other spoon.

Stirring the bolognese sauce using the supoon

Jac used the clongs to serve up the spaghetti in our big pasta bowls. As I took this photo I was saying “More, please.”

And back to the supoon to spoon sauce generously over the pasta. Yum. Jac topped her spaghetti bolognese with chopped fresh parsley and plenty of cheese.

Serving up dinner using the supoon

See? Thanks to the spoon that “sits up”, no spaghetti sauce mess on the kitchen counter! And of course, we used the supoon to scrape every drop of leftover meaty sauce into lunch boxes for the next day.
