Add a feature to ordinary pots and pans

The Slip-On Pour Spout is a simple and inexpensive solution to a common kitchen conundrum.

Add pour spouts to your cookware without breaking the bank. Kitchen Krafts

Kitchen gadgets can range from entirely unnecessary to incredibly useful. And as we all well know, there is no guarantee that an expensive product equates into a quality product. It could be said that the best kitchen gadgets extend functionality of an already existing product; everybody likes getting extended value. Be that as it may be, such products are all too often rare to see actually available. And even more rare to find at an attractive price. But that doesn't mean they aren't out there.

The Slip-On Pour Spout is available for about 5 bucks and turns an ordinary pot or pan into a convenient spouted piece of cookware. Made from dishwasher-safe, heat-resistant silicone, the instant spout slips on to existing thin-lipped cookware, providing an easy, mess-free way to transfers liquid ingredients. Anybody who has ever made a puddle of a mess while attempting to do so without a spout would appreciate the easy simplicity of such a low-investment kitchen gadget.

Quality cookware can get expensive fast, and often the little details are still overlooked. Safe for use up to 480 degrees F, the little spout may not be a big investment, but it can provide everyday use without requiring the use of a forge. For a few bucks, a little piece of silicone can extend the utility of even the heftiest cookware, and that is a kitchen gadget that everyone can find useful.
