Rarely Asked Questions

Can you use anything as a ladle if a handle is manually attached?

Yes. As is often said in the podcast hosted by Cash Levy and with frequent guest t.j. Miller, All things are a ladle once a handle is attached. The effectiveness of the ladle is of course on a spectrum- a mug, if a handle is attached, is a very effective ladle. If you attach a handle to a phone case, that technically becomes a ladler but not a very effective one. Here is a spectrum showing different objects that when a handle is attached, they become ladles, with their corresponding effectiveness score on a scale from 1 to 10, where 10 is the most effective and 1 is the least:
