Meet Gandalf the mug.
Single-handedly (because it’s a mug and you hold it in one hand, get it?) the greatest kitchen utensil I own.
Need to melt some butter? Gandalf.
Need to set aside some flour? Gandalf.
Need to strain some liquid from a slow-cooking stew? Gandalf.
Need to poach an egg in the microwave? Gandalf (with a takeaway container on top to stop the egg from getting all over the microwave).
Need some milk at one part of a recipe, then the rest later? Gandalf.
Need to trap a spider and take it outside? Well, no, we have a spider cup. But Gandalf would be there in a pinch.
Need a cup of tea? Okay, if I liked you, I’d use my Morris the Cat mugs, but, if, like, I had a lot of people over? Gandalf.
Need to make a double-boiler for melting chocolate? Gandalf will sit in the pot of boiling water happily.
And if Gandalf the Mug breaks, that’s fine! I have another one just in case!
