Remember this antique find? After a bit of deliberation, The Man and I decided to use it as a utensil holder.
We removed the lid, cord and element (it’s an early electric kettle). Fret not, we did some research and it’s not particularly valuable, however we did keep the original attachments anyway in case we want to restore and sell it later.
We mainly use non-stick plastic and silicone utensils so the metal and wooden ones you see here aren’t used on a daily basis. So to be honest it’s not really any more convenient than before, although it has freed up some space in the overflowing drawer so it’s not completely without practical benefit.
How about you? Do you keep your utensils within arm’s reach or do you prefer to tuck them out of sight?
