I’ve found the perfect present for the Scrooge/greedy guzzler in your life, the person who always wants to get that very last bit of Nutella or peanut butter out of the jar. It’s a clever little gadget called a Mini Supoon, or what the bunch of dudes from Dreamfarm, Down Under, call a ‘sit up scraping’ spoon.
A Sit UP scraping sPOON (geddit?) is a teaspoon with a flat and bendy squeegee silicone tip which will scrape around any jar, bowl or pan leaving it completely clean.
When you put the spoon down, the handle design means that the head sits up at an angle, so it’s like having a built-in spoon rest.It comes in lots of different colours.You can use it on the stove because it’s made of heat resistant silicone and can withstand temperatures of up to 26 ºC /500ºF, it won’t damage non-stick cook wear and you can pop it in the dishwasher afterwards. You can use it to measure a perfect teaspoon too.
And it only costs £5.80, so I’ll be buying a few of them – expect one in your stocking.
Just one of the many cool gadgets and gifts on the shelves at Emporio La Strada in Frome.
