The Nessie Ladle has the body shape of the mysterious Loch Ness monster but this guy’s got stubby little legs so that it can stand on its own. Designed by Ototo for the modern store Animi Causa, the turquoise blue ladle, unfortunately, isn’t ready to ship out until February. The cleverly designed product costs $15.99.
2. Last Drop Ladle by Jeho Yoon [source]
Trying to get every last drop of liquid out of a serving bowl with a ladel is all but impossible. The contours of the rigid scoop and the bowl never seem to match up. But designer Jeho Yoon had a brilliant solution. Since a ladel made entirely from silicone would have no rigidity, he compromised by only making half the scoop from the flexible material, allowing it could squeeze into contoured corners.
