The inventor, James Archer, came up with the idea for Silpoura after seeing his wife, Gail, struggle to drain bacon grease into a soda can during a camping trip. After many prototypes, he created the clip-on Silpoura spout, which comes with its own detachable strainer. It easily attaches to mixing and serving bowls, pots, pans, skillets and double boilers. You can pour and strain with precision, and Silpoura also doubles as a spoon rest. It’s a true go-to gadget that makes short work of everyday kitchen and cooking tasks.
