It's kind of embarrassing how long we looked for a spoon rest. It seemed like they were all either too kitschy or too plain. Yes, it's true, we put a lot of thought into the ideal spoon rest, and then one day, we came across this Pot Lid Stand ($15). It's not solely a spoon rest, but the brilliance of it makes it a serious contender. Not only will it hold our spoon, when it comes time to take that scalding lid off our pan, it'll hold that too. It's an excellent purchase for those of us with tiny kitchens where one lid placed on the counter takes up 80% of the usable workspace.
