Silicone Ladle Set
Big (and little) dipper.
These ladles sure are gamechangers. Each one has a flexible silicone body that hugs the curves of your pots and pans just like a spatula would, scooping up every last drop of soup or sauce. Opt for the skinny one when filling up jars of jams and salsas, and use the bigger one for...well...just about everything else. And don’t let that flexibility fool you—these dynamos are tough enough to handle your heartiest chili. (They’re even dishwasher-safe and heat-proof up to 464°F!)

Here are our favorite kitchen utensils -- the ones we won't give up in favor of a simpler life. It's funny how so many of our answers are about tools that are just so "satisfying" to use!Click through for pitters, slicers, and choppers galore.
