Honey has been used by humans for centuries as a natural sweetener and treatment for various ailments, and is highly prized for its nutrient content and antimicrobial properties. The sticky nature of honey often makes its use messy, which is why there are several tools that make scooping and spreading it a cleaner and easier task.
One of the most overlooked but useful kitchen tools is the honey dipper. The advantage of a dipper over more common kitchen utensil lies in its unique shape: it has a long handle to make dipping into the bottom of a large jar easier and a round-ridged head to hold the honey and prevent spilling. Honey dippers come in a variety of materials, including stainless steel, plastic, silicone and wood.
Spoons are among the most common utensil used to dip into honey, although other utensils including various types of knives, spatulas and scrapers can be used.
The type of utensil chosen can depend on what the honey will be used for. If the honey is to be stirred into a cup of tea, then a spoon may be the most useful tool. However, if the honey is meant to be spread or drizzled onto bread or a biscuit, then a knife, small spatula or honey dipper may the ideal utensil.
