We used to have a plastic ladle but in a drive to rid my kitchen of plastic I replaced it with a metal ladle. I used the ladle for scooping porridge out of our bulk bought sack of porridge to top up a tupperware container and for serving soup, stews and sauces.
I’m not suggesting you throw out your ladle or scoop if you have a perfectly good one, but if you are trying to transition to a plastic free kitchen and yours is plastic or if your ladle breaks, then try these alternatives before you rush out and buy a new one. Reading this you might think these solutions are really obvious and they are, but also really easy to overlook. I sometimes forget that things can have more uses than just those that they were originally intended for and that I don’t always need a specific tool dedicated tool to do a job!
