Got a drippy spoon? These Utensil Pot Clips ($5.56 apiece at Sur La Table and many other retailers) are intended to keep those drips inside the pot instead of splattered on your stove. You can clip them anywhere - on the side of a stockpot, frying pan, or casserole dish - anything that needs stovetop time.

It looks like a great idea in theory, but we are wondering how helpful they are in practice. Are they awkward to use? Does the spoon fall out? Does anyone have experience with these little gadgets?
