A dream about using utensils signifies your ability to handle situations in life. That's the simplest answer.

It may also indicate your readiness to take on a new project or task. Seeing someone else use utensils, by contrast, could symbolize your perception of how others manage their affairs. It might also reflect your feelings about someone else's approach to a situation. Both of these dreams suggest a focus on practicality, control, and the manner in which tasks are handled.

Utensils is difficult dream experience to to give you a single interpretation of. To say with any kind of confidence, I'd have to take a deeper dive into the dreamer's life story and current situation.

Dreaming of using utensils may be thought of as a manifestation of your subconscious grappling with the concept of manipulation, not in a negative sense, but in the Freudian understanding of the term, as in the ability to control and shape one's environment.

Also: It may also signify your desire for precision and orderliness in your waking life. Observing someone else use utensils in a dream, however, could be indicative of your latent feelings of being manipulated or controlled by others. Alternatively, it might represent your unconscious evaluation of others' ability to manage their lives. Both interpretations are rooted in the psychoanalytic theory of control and manipulation.
