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.
