Do you wind up with peppercorns bouncing all over your counter every time you need to refill the pepper grinder? Kitchn reader Jess sent us this smart tip for filling our pepper grinders without spills — using a silicone muffin liner!

Jess says:

I’m always happy to find an alternative use for a kitchen gadget and I found that silicone muffin liners make great funnels. I had a hard time filling my pepper grinder without spills and I discovered that scooping the peppercorns into the muffin liner gave me a lot more control in pouring the right amount.

They work well for putting spices in jars or getting sprinkles in just the right spot.

Do you do this? Have you discovered any other creative uses for your silicone muffin liners?!
