I enjoy cooking. Washing up, however, not so much. I usually try and avoid using a spoon rest by precariously balancing the wooden spoon I'm using on the pan handle.

Sometimes this results in the teetering, sauce covered spoon, falling to the floor - usually in slow motion as I look on helplessly.

My local Hackspace (Hitchin Hackspace, Herts UK) received a load of Sugru recently, which inspired me to come up with a solution for my occasionally messy problem.

Step 1: Make the Spoon Rest

All my pans have holes in the handles, so I decided to mold a small removable rest that would sit snugly in the hole and cradle the spoon handle, preventing it from falling whilst cooking.

A trial run with some blu-tack proved the principle, so it was just a case of repeating the shape with Sugru.

Simple but effective, and since deployed successfully.

that hole in the handle of the pan can usually hold the standard wooden spoon. one of them grandma tricks I herd one day I was like hmmm no kidding and it works holding it very well.
True, but when it's coated in sauce you end up with drops on the cooker, or at least I do with my spoon/pan combination.
