Pouring Made E-Z

E-Z is a flap kinda attachment that you slip on the rim of a wide-mouthed pot or shallow pans so that you can pour the liquid contents into a bowl or utensil without spilling over. I can very well see myself using this aid when I try and pour out oil from my kadhai after a batch of deep frying. For some odd reason skillets, shallow pans and the more traditional kadhai & wok don’t have that required nip-in-the-mouth for pouring out hot liquids sans spills. It’s almost as if their design-evolution has stagnated….maybe this can inspire one of you to recreate a new design!

Designers: William Thompson & Alex Thompson under the direction of Professor Tsai Lu Liu of Auburn University

      this is briliant! simply brilliant.

      but you should make it a little bit longer on the sides. thinking about pouring out sauce, not letting the meat fall out.

      Cant help thinking the force of the sauce or ingredients being poured from the pan would cause it to fall off…
      The spoon at that angle means residue sauce will slide down the handle….yuck.
      You could have the same pouring effect with something a third of the size as all you really need is the spout part. The pans that exist with this integrated is the way forward.

      Yeah right, try puttin' that on a hot pan and not knock the pan on the floor, then you get to smell burning rubber.

      Cast iron pans already have 'spouts' in the middle of each side of their rims. Stop buying shitty cookware and this isn't a problem.

      a little hand eye coordination and u do neither need a pan with this integrated nor some piece of equipment that u have to clean separately

      I think it's just CG concept art at this point, not a real product.
      If it ever saw the light of day, this thing would be a lawsuit waiting to happen. Assuming you don't burn yourself trying to put it on the pan, the thing is just going to slip off while you're pouring. At that point the entire contents of the pan will spill out all at once because, now that the side of your pan is 2 inches taller, you need to tilt it at a much steeper angle to pour.

    • Beefeater123 says:

      That's a horrible design. You'll have to turn the pan more than sideways to drain the liquid entirely because the pour spout is recessed from the side. If you tried to drain all the fat from, say, ground beef, you'd still have to use a spoon or spatula with this to keep the meat in the pan while draining.

      They sell these for paint cans, at home depot for a dollar. i have one, and just went and put it on a random pan, and voila.

      What the f*** do I need a spout for, when cooking a pancake? This thing will live forever in the back of a drawer, gathering dust. Come on, design something good- it's a great material you have there.
