Always Hit the Container with the g-Spout

How many times have you tried to pour something into a container and made a big mess? It happens all the time for me. I get so tired of cleaning up the counter after I've tried to pour something into a container for storage or to put in the trash.

The g-Spout is a removable spout/strainer that easily attaches to a skillet, double boiler, bowl or can. Made of high temperature food grade silicone, the g-Spout is microwave and dishwasher safe.

The g-Spout was originally developed to encourage the environmentally responsible disposal of cooking grease and oil, and to help eliminate clogged drains and sewers. Fats, Oils and Greases stick to the inside of sewers becoming a blockage and sewage "backs up" into homes, businesses or the street.

The g-Spout has become so much more! Customers are suggesting new uses almost every day! It's great for making cupcakes, muffins, and pancakes without drips or baked on batter; drizzling chocolate, and caramel from a double boiler; pouring paint back into bottles; straining fruit salad, vegetables or rice; pouring sugar, salt or coffee; and of course, straining hot bacon or hamburger grease into disposable containers.

Remember - removing the fat, oil, and grease is also good for your family's health. It's not limited to the kitchen either - it can be used in the garage, shop, RV, and even the craft room. The g-Spout is easy to attach and lets you pour with one hand - No more clumsy funnels or dripping ladles to worry about.
