I can't count how many times my husband and I would use a spoon to stir something we're cooking in the microwave or mixing up, and then lay the spoon down on the counter, all messy. I remember to grab a saucer once in a while or the actual spoon rest from the stove, but am usually too busy (lazy) to do it, and end up constantly cleaning the counter from the two of us laying down those dirty spoons.
Then I saw these Silicone Spoon Rests and I knew it's just what we needed. I have two on each side of our long kitchen counter ready for any kind of mixing or cooking. This also solves the problem of needing multiple spoon rests while cooking. They're flexible, so won't break when I'm being my usual clumsy self, and they're nice and big! They wash up great.
I strongly recommend this clever, handy product!
