Soup Saver Scoop
Please allow me a promotional post. I don’t get a kickback or anything from this other than some potential FNPs (Favorite Nephew Points).
My Aunt Sharon is selling these super Soup Saver Scoops:
She is retired and has started up a business to sell these things. She came up with the idea based on an old utensil that is apparently nowhere to be found anymore. She worked with a firm to design it and have a mold made up, and is manufacturing them in China and selling them through her own web site. I think that’s pretty cool.
I saw the prototype and knew it would be a decent kitchen helper, but after using it last night for the first time I really wanted to spread the word: this is a great scoop! We had Northwoods Wild Rice Soup and the ladle was a joy and a pleasure to use. The scooping, the scraping, the pouring… all wonderful. I got that geek/engineer thrill of having the right tool for the job.
I’m getting this posted too late for Christmas ordering, but Christmas gifts are mostly a bogus and forced thing anyway. You can buy some for yourself and the people you love anytime. It’s an inexpensive gift that is sure to delight the special cook in your life, and January and February are still prime soup months, after all!
