If not, where do you put your spoon when cooking?
do you know, i can't actually tell you where i put it. just....down.
i would quite *like* a spoon rest now. I didn't know they existed.
So it doesn't touch anything.
Sounds like the kind of thing purchased and used by people with too much money and not enough physical violence in their lives
Put it on a chopping board you've been using (not raw meat obvs), or just on the work surface which you're hopefully going to wipe down later anyway. Or in the sink. Give it a rinse under the tap each time if you like.
Don't buy a spoon rest, meowy. I implore you.
I'm probably gonna buy a spoon rest.
found in the back of a dusty cupboard next to the smoothy maker and the George Foreman
but if its a saucy thing, you get little circles of sauce everywhere. Not comfortable with that since I've seen there is such a thing as a spoon rest.
and then after the stir is complete, but the spoon back on the side again. or i suppose you could just demand he holds the spoon
A spoon rest is just another thing to have to wash up.
I like wooden spoons
you McDonald's shoveling beast
My friend has this, it's amazing:
best purchase for the kitchen i've made in easy.
that and a chopping board with little grippy studs on so you can anchor stuff in place while you're chopping the fuck out of it
I bought this for CG at christmas cause he's well into his wax
They've seemed well shit when I've handled them in a shop.
Seem like the kind of things that only a Dyson-owning household could live with. Henry households know that glass chopping boards are the best chopping boards.
SPECIFICALLY FOR CAT HAIRS.
You fuckwit! Have you no respect for your Tesco Value knives.
Wooden blocks all the way.
Don't keep them out on display or anything.
This is ambush marketing, I'm telling Evil Sean Adams.
It's pretty good, if so.
failing that, I use a saucer. The best spoon rests are empty cans.
buying an appliance whose sole purpose in life is to have spoons rested on it just seems sad.
You might as well just buy another spoon and rest it on that.
cause I thought it was cat_race and he is subliminally funny.
I keep it right next to the kohlrabi corer
that someone has invented and mass-produced something called a spoon rest, and that people are willing to spend money to buy said spoon rest
if you ask me though, if there's one thing the world does not need, its a fucking spoon rest. there are 100 places to rest a spoon in a fucking kitchen, take you pick.
or rest it on the saucepan handle
I'm talking about when you cook with a big pan so you can't rest it anywhere. I've tried. I'm getting the spoon rest.
and then rest the spoon you're using to stir in/on the bigger spoon?
Meaning that, nowadays, saucepan handle holes are used almost exclusively for resting saucy spoons in.
Chopping board, usually.
Mine is chrome. It looks like Alex Mack sunbathing on my counter.
but i always fancied alex mack.
you only fancied her in shiny metallic liquid form, didn't you. ooh, Alex Mack, I wish you'd shapeshift under my bedroom door, you sexy puddle of shiny liquid.
have worked in commercial kitchen
have done lots of home cooking that is quite involved
once cooked 5 course meal for 8 people from scratch (nothing brought pre preped)
Mrs Knees runs a commercial kitchen and she does even more cooking at home, again usually from nearly scratch, also does some special event cooking.
She also doesnt use a spoon rest but instead does have a disciplined strict regime approach, and has colour coded chopping boards for the commercial kitchen
Leave the spoon in the pan for christ's sake, it's not going to dissolve.
Then you're ok
I suppose I sort of balance them on top sometimes rather than actually leaving them in.
Used my wok without asking, made a curry, left the heat on with the spoon and remains of said curry in the wok as he ate it in the other room.
Never replaced it.
with cats on it. it came from my mum/tk maxx. not a fucking clue where it is now, otherwise i'd give it to you.
It doubles up as a work surface which is handy, I'm just unfortunate that I now have to find another outlet for my shopaholicism.
terrible terrible stuff
thus not leave residue anywhere. Or I leave it in the pan. Or I just don't care and leaveit wherever and just wipe the mess down during kitchen clean up time. A spoon rest is just unneccesary.
If left in the pan then the spoon handle is left resting above the pan handle so it doesn't get hot. Important.
I am clean
tell her i'll see her later yeah?
Why didn't thewarn think of this?
This could be a watershed moment in your DiS career
You can rest two spoons at one time.
I says I <3 NY on it.
Read it and weep, dorks.
Although I sometimes says it too.
I just hold it, it's no big deal. yeah, i do go to the gym.
I rest my spoon on my plate, or the chopping board, or the soy sauce thing, but not on a spoon rest.
I will say though that my family does have a set of crystal cutlery rests. We've never used them and they sit in a display cabinet.
What soy sauce thing?
So you can dip your dumplings or sushi.
what is this madness
Nobody say anything. It's not worth it.
have you ever just had a spoonful of lemon curd?
had both a chocolate spread and a lemon curd sandwich earlier, life is good
If not, how do you stop poo poo from getting on your bum when you're taking a massive dump.
Have one, used it for a while, don't really use it now.
