Exactly! It's actually called a "Spout Ladle".

You'll see a bunch of them.
A spout ladle is the optimal tool for basting. I've tried spoons, suction basters, basting mops, and even those new silicone basting brushes. All but the first are less efficient at getting enough liquid out of the bottom of a pan.
Regular spoons, even so-called "basting spoons," aren't the right shape for getting down deep into the pan while simultaneously letting you scoop up enough liquid without having to tilt the pan too much.
Enter the spout ladle, which is the perfect shape for this. The angles line up; The tilt is right; And it's long enough you don't run the risk of burning yourself on the pan or the rack while doing it.
