Futand / Pot Lid


Have you ever been worried about putting the pot lid and the used ladle on a table?
If the used ladle is placed on a kitchen table directly, it gets dirty. However if the ladle keeps staying in the pot, it is not able to close the pot perfectly. In addition, it is difficult to lean the pot lid against a wall stable or it sometimes dangerous to put the pot lid on the table upside-down because of a burn on the hand.
Futand, the new pot lid that a part of it is made by silicone, is allow to put back itself on the pot even if the ladle is still in. Also it stands by itself to transform the silicon part like a foot.
