Experimenting with a bit of silliness … “as seen on the Internet”

Posted By on June 2, 2019


If you grew up watching Get Smart, then you know about the “cone of silence” … but do you know about thebottle of protection?”

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across a guy work over a stove and frying pan of hot oil. If you’ve done this before, no doubt the spatter occasionally burns your hand … especially when using a short utensil. I noticed this inventive chap cut off a plastic soda pop bottle, fed the handle of the utensil thru the screw cap and stuck his hand in the bottle to protect himself  from spatter. It was ingenious enough for me to give it a try while cooking some chicken fried rice.

FYI – Reality check:  I doubt for a single pan of fried rice it is worth it … but would reconsider, or just wear a glove, if I were frying up a bunch of fried fish fillets!
