The best solution to a puddle of drips on the stove top or side bench is to use a spoon rest. When the cooking utensil is laid on it, drips stay on the rest.

Spoon and utensil rests take many forms ... these rests are created in the same style as the Gilmour Design range of cooking stirrers, spoons and utensils ... with elegant curvaceous simplicity.

Gilmour Design Utensil Rests are handmade from selected salvaged and recycled Australian hardwood timbers which are sourced by the maker. Each rest is unique and all vary in size and shape ... being made to organically follow the grain and features in the piece of wood. They mostly average in size between 13 and 16 cm in length (5 and 6 inches) by 6 or 7 cm (2 1/2 inches) wide with a total height of around 1.8 cm (3/4 inch). The rests are shaped with a gradual rise towards both ends and low point in the middle where the spoon or utensil sits. Generally there is also a small amount of dishing in the top face of the rest to aid collection of any drips from the utensil.

Utensil Rests from Gilmour Design are designed to take up a minimal amount of bench or stove-top space and to complement the range of curvaceous utensils. Furthermore, these minimal design rests are also wonderful display dishes for small curios or jewellery items.

This product listing is for an item which will be selected from available stock ... or made to order. The item shipped will be like the pictures in shape and style but will vary in colour and wood type. The wood used is from select stock which is dried and seasoned and is ultimately suitable for utensil making. Rest-assured, you will receive the best selected stock item of the day.

Care for this utensil rest is very simple. Don't be scared to use it and wash it in the sink using normal practices ... hot water and dishwashing detergent are fine. Preferably keep it out of the dishwasher, although experience has proven that it won't kill it if the item ends up in there occasionally ... though the intense detergent will prematurely harm the surface and finish. Oiling is not really necessary ... but you can oil it if you want.

This utensil rest is sanded to a very smooth finish and is fully sealed with a penetrating food-neutral resin product. You do not need to oil this item as the sealing process creates an effective moisture barrier which will greatly slow down the oxidation process during the early years of its life. The utensil rest will last you a very long time and will age beautifully.

Please don't place your wooden utensil rest directly on or very close to the gas or electric hotplate as the wood will risk catching fire.

The rest is beautifully shaped, elegant on the counter and compliments the previously ordered spatulas - a stand-out item. Service is personal and excellent.
