The funnel is one of the unsung heroes of the kitchen. I use mine all the time for transferring liquids like soy sauce or cooking oil from large, bulk-size containers into smaller bottles that are more practical for regular use. It also comes in handy for dry goods, like for refilling the sugar bowl from a 5-pound bag or filling a pepper grinder from the giant container of peppercorns I have at home.
This elephantine funnel from Pylones dresses up the lowly kitchen tool. It's so cute I feel guilty hiding it away in the dregs of my Tupperware cupboard. For those who want to really show off the little Pinocchio-elephant mutant, there's a handy hook from which to hang it.
Show it off to friends. Sing its praises. The kitchen funnel is humble no more.
