This ladle was created for both left-handers and right-handers. It showcases a symmetric design idiom with pouring spouts on both sides for a highly convenient use. Thanks to its specific contours, the ladle can reach into the corners of pots, making it easy to scoop up soup. In addition, pouring is easy because the gently curved surfaces avoid spillage. Using seamless 18-8 stainless steel, which meets high standards of hygiene, made it possible to reduce the thickness of the material to 1.5 mm.
