When it comes to cooking, most of the utensils found in the kitchen are slightly boring; that’s not to say they’re not useful – they’re just not overly exciting. When’s the last time you got all excited about your pair of salad tongs? Or, when’s the last time you couldn’t wait to get home to your rubber spatula? However, there is a new ladle out there I think we can all get excited about. (You probably never thought you’d hear that in the same sentence, huh?) Designed by Ototo, this ladle is completely designed after the fabled Loch Ness Monster, and I wouldn’t think twice about using it in my own kitchen.

Since no one’s properly seen the Loch Ness Monster (or Nessie) to take a nice full picture of it we really don’t know exactly what it looks like, but I’m willing to bet this ladle gets it pretty close. And even if it looks nothing like it, it still adds some mystery to your kitchen.

Use A Loch Ness Monster Ladle In Your Kitchen

Apart from looking awesome, it’s also quite practical as it stands up by itself thanks to four little legs around its base. Starting in February of this year, you can pick yourself up one of these ladles for $15.99 here.

Even if whatever you’re ladling doesn’t taste so good, at least you’ll have a nice conversation starter.
