Fun Finds Friday!

Ok, so I’ve needed to post about this product since my birthday. And that was only what? 6 months ago?! Nothing like a little procrastination in my life…

This is the Kuhn Rikon Spill Stopper. Now, I’ve raved about the Kuhn Rikon knives before, and if you haven’t gotten any of those yet, you simply must get some soon! And add this little guy to your shopping list while you’re at it. The Spill Stopper comes in two sizes for different-sized pots and in multiple colors. It’s very easy to use: simply place it over a pot of boiling water, like you would a lid, and watch it work it’s magic. We’ve all had those starchy spillovers while making potatoes or pasta on the stovetop, but these prevent the pot from ever boiling over. The stopper collects the foam and keeps it from seeping down the sides of the pot. It’s genius I tell you!! (At least for people like me who are notorious for overfilling their pots of boiling water.) Just remember to use potholders when removing it after whatever you are boiling has finished cooking. These guys do get hot! They are made of silicone and dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. Here’s a (horrible) pic of one of mine in action-

Happy Friday!
