Introducing: The Spon

The Spon

The Problem & The Solution

The Problem
Baking and sauce mixes clogging in the bowl of a wooden spoon while the back does all the work.

The Solution
Make a spoon with 2 backs.

The Benefits
The two backs and extra weight at the "business end" means greatly increased beating power. This means that, for most baking recipes, all the ingredients can be measured straight into the bowl with no need to sift flour or beat the eggs, thus reducing preparation time and clean-up. With no spoon bowl to clog with mixture and extra weight, everything mixes together quickly and easily.

The spon is the brainchild of Scottish tearoom owner Neal Robertson. Check out the story behind the Spon here.

I absolutely love this new gadget and think I am going to order a set. I want my Victoria Sponge to look like the one on his website!

Nice! My grandma has a really old wooden stick sort of like this - one side is curved like the back of a wooden spoon and the other side is just flat. I used it once at her house, and was so impressed at how well it worked - I wondered why they don't make them anymore.

Cool! I must admit, when I saw the Spon I was like: "Why didn't I think of that?" LOL By the way, my daughter just returned from a business trip to Boston (her first time there) - she LOVED it! She said that Plymouth was cool, too.

Hi,Denise. You are truly amazing. How do you find these interesting websites and products? I bought the tea puzzle you featured weeks ago. It was a bear to complete, but I did it. Now, I've just ordered the spon set via Paypal. You're costing me money, but I'm having fun all the way.

Lovely to hear from you Anne! I'm glad that some of my Uniquely Tea discoveries are enriching your life, albeit shrinking your checkbook balance!
