Oh, wow. Thanks. I googled but apparently didn't hold my mouth right--or use the right words! ;o) Not at all what I thought it would be--nor would it be something I would use! I agree on the "laying it across the pan".
The theory with this one is the spoon end will drip back into the pan and not on your stove or down the sides of the pan, which has the potential to happen if you lay it across the top of the pan. The only thing you would have to worry about is if your pans had a lip running around it.
