Innovative tool has a weighted handle system and small foot under the handle, so the utensil can be placed on the countertop without having the end of the tool touch the counter.
Helps avoid messes and cross-contamination, and eliminates the need for a spoon rest. Heat-resistant head to 480°F. Ideal for use with nonstick cookware. Soft-grip, ergonomic handles for comfort. All surfaces that come in contact with food are BPA free.
I love the concept, I love the shape . . . but when I use it for a heftier soup, I have to shake out my ladle heartily, before putting it on the counter - or it tips over and defeats the whole purpose of elevation. Great for light-weight soups, such as broths, but the balance is off with bisques or chowders. Just needs a little more tweaking, to offset any residue left on the spoon, during serving or cooking use. If I don't have the time to shake it out, it ends up laying on the countertop or back onto a spoon rest. Otherwise, I love it and use it all the time
The balanced ladle will 'hang' on the edge of my waffle batter bowl. And the curvatures of the ladle edge will easily hug the bowl and pot corner to get the last drop. I bought it exclusively for my waffle batter, but now hangs on the wall as it is my favorite. My other ladles will be donated to some needy organization. I highly reccommend
