Hang In There

Sometimes you cook dinner. Sometimes dinner cooks you. Jonathan Simons' Lazy Spoon® gives you and your spoon a rest. Made with a notch that fits over the lip of your sauce pan or stock pot, liquids end up back in the pot instead of on your counter. Jonathan creates his handy spoons from handsome, durable cherry wood, so you can wash it with a little soap, occasionally wipe it with mineral oil, and have it at hand for years to come. Make it a staple of your kitchen toolset, or give one as a thoughtful housewarming or hostess gift. Handmade in Kempton, Pennsylvania.

It’s not often you meet someone with a passion for spoons. Jonathan Simons is a woodworker with a background steeped in both bold Bauhaus and the traditional Arts and Crafts movement. The common theme in those contrasting schools of thought? Form follows function, and so he makes sure each piece he creates has a clear purpose. His one-of-a-kind spoons aren’t just the result of experiments in his workshop, but from experiments in the kitchen, refining each design so that it has a shape and balance that makes life both easier and more beautiful.

Handmade Made in the USA

cherry wood, food-grade mineral oil

Wooden spoon that won't "fall in"!


very helpful, and I've sent two as gifts as well.

I bought this amazing spoon as a gift to myself!


I am not a lazy cook, but the Lazy Wooden Spoon is a practical time saver and that is why I love it! No more searching through a maze of gadgets in my kitchen drawers for the elusive spoon rest. I just place it on the side of my pot or pan and voila! The drips fall right back into the pot, where they belong. Ingenious!
