I was at Ikea yesterday, buying some odds and ends in an effort to make our new place home. Yes, I know. Ikea. Great design that disintegrates faster than it goes out of style. Still, they do carry some handy knick knacks.
Take these nesting spoons for example. As soon as I saw them wrapped in plastic fishnet, I was curious. These little lovelies have a magnet on the handle, allowing for easy stacking and keeping them together in your drawer by sheer magnetic force. No fiddly little key ring to corral your wayward measuring spoons. No searching for that one tiny Barbie-sized measuring spoon you never use but invariably need when you least expect it. These spoons stick together like diminutive stainless steel family. (I’m imagining these spoons lined up, largest to smallest, swaying on the kitchen counter, singing “We are family/I got all my sisters with me.” Is it completely bizarre that my kitchenware performs Sister Sledge songs?)
I tried pinning the set to the side of the fridge for storage—no luck. You could probably hang them on a magnetic knife rack—another goody from Ikea which I have yet to install. Meanwhile, these ladies are going in the cutlery drawer where they can sing their little hearts out to an audience of assorted flatware.
