A stick made up of thin metal or wood that is used to hold small pieces of food is a skewer

. They are mostly used for grilling and roasting meat. Metal skewers

are made from stainless steel. One end of the skewer

is pointed and the other has a grip in order to remove the food from the stick easily. Wooden skewers

should ideally be made from bamboo but other woods are sometimes used. In order to prevent burning, the wooden skewer should be soaked while grilling. Kebabs

are the most common skewer dishes. Skewers

are put to another use as well. Small skewers of glass or wood are used as decorative for alcoholic beverages.
