The spoon rest is handy! We rarely stray from flatware into accessories but a good spoon rest when cooking at the stove is required for any good kitchen. And this one looks like it would do better than other solutions people try in my kitchen (like a paper towel that just soaked through and made a mess anyways).
Tomorrow’s Kitchen Silicone Utensil Rest has many features and can handle up to four pieces of cooking cutlery at once. Made of non-slip heat safe silicone with raised notches for utensils and raised edges keep spills contained on the rest, and not on your counter top (like the paper towel idea).
