Unitasker Wednesday: Monogrammed steak brand

Do you consider yourself a grill master? If so, how do you put your mark on a nice juicy steak? Well, Williams-Sonoma has a way for you to make every steak a real masterpiece by adding your monogram to the prepared beef. Now all your friends and family will know who prepared their steak by reading the monogram before they dig in.

Williams-Sonoma has stepped up to the plate and furnished the grill master with a product that no one was clamoring for. I know I enjoy monogrammed food much more than non-monogrammed food. Is there an untapped market for monogrammed food? If there is, Williams-Sonoma is at the forefront of this market with the Monogrammed Steak Brand. For those of you who live in Hawaii or Alaska you are out of luck. Williams-Sonoma does not ship this item to you.

**Unitasker Wednesday posts humorously poke fun at the single-use items that seem to find their way into our homes.

    Mmmmmm … monogrammed meat.

    Thank you, Matt, I haven’t laughed this hard in a while. Riotous.

    Is it wrong that I actually think this is really cool?

    Matt — I’ve been waiting for unclutterer to post this one…I saw it in the WS catalog that was sent to me (more clutter – the random mail that seems to appear without being requested) and pointed it out to my husband.

    I say, if you really want to brand your meat, get out a knife and carve your initials in…or attach a tag when it is done.

    (Aside: I think a prior response to a posting ended up in your spam filter.)

    Ha, I saw Sandra Lee use one of these on her TV show. In my opinion, that’s not a ringing endorsement.

    Well, I couldn’t imagine ever buying a WS brand, but as a diehard ASU football fan, I have to ready admit that I own an ASU brand for tailgating.

    And you’ll never pry it from my hands.

    It’s of course a luxury (and a free gift), but is nonetheless quite cool to whip out during the Saturday afternoon tailgate. And it works better on the hamburger bun than the actual burger.

    While a monogram brand isn’t for most people, I have to say that branded steaks aren’t something that I haven’t been exposed to…

    Growing up in ranchland, it was common practice to brand steaks at a bar-b-q the evening after a cattle drive. Of course, these people already use the brand on their cattle, and happen to have it handy.

    On the other hand, I operate a laser engraving machine at work, and on the chart of commonly engraved materials is steak. Turns out that create custom grill marks (for valentines dinners) and even burn in the chef’s signature with a laser engraver. Of course, fancy grill marks w/text and artwork is the difference between a sizzler steak and a gourmet steak that costs many times more.

    I wonder if it’d brand veggie burgers.

    I can see the looks of awe on my friends’ faces now. Awe and RESPECT, man.

    Williams Sonoma is the king of awesome devices, eh?

    It might be fun to get one that says “MOO”. You know, to really freak out my vegetarian friends.

    If you really want, you can get a brand for every member of the family – no more question of ‘is this my steak or is it yours?’ :P :P

    Actually I think that’s kinda cool. I mean, where have you ever eaten monogrammed meat?

    This one might just survive my uncluttering frenzies…

    OMG That’s so cool. I want one!

    That is even more odd than the bacon press someone gave me. I never knew my bacon needed pressing and I didn’t know my steaks needed an ID tag either.

    I think the consumer society is going too far. Besides we’re eating way too much meat. As Michael Pollan says “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” In fact, the more I think about it, the more idiotic it is…

    I’m so glad you put the disclaimer on this post. As a new reader, I wasn’t sure you were kidding at first, and I was a little worried. :-)
