How to choose a spoon rest
• Spoon rests vary in terms of size, shape and material, so it’s best to think first about your cooking needs. Do you regularly prepare elaborate meals with multiple cooking utensils? You’ll probably want a larger spoon rest that offers spaces for more than one utensil at a time.
• Common materials for spoon rests include plastic, treated wood and silicone. Look for a material that matches your countertop décor, but that will also be easy to clean.
• Many spoon rests offer a curvy design with a shallow bowl, so that there is plenty of space for residual liquids when you put the spoon down.
