From bread bowls to ice cream cones, the best vehicle for food is one you can also eat. The Edible Spoon Maker takes that idea to the next level by giving you a whimsical way to make your own fresh-baked eating utensils at home.

The machine works like a waffle iron by pressing dough or batter into a ladle shape and baking it in just a few minutes. There are similar products out there designed to make donuts, cake pops, and even corn dogs, but these edible spoons are a game-changer. If you’re feeling too lazy to do the prep work yourself, the gadget works just as well with pre-made products like biscuit dough that you can pick up from your local grocery store. You can have your spoons lean toward the pastry end of the spectrum for things like cereal, yogurt, and ice cream, or go the savory route for soups and chili. And if you’re already used to eating soup out of a hollowed-out loaf of bread, an edible spoon shouldn't be too far of a stretch. The product’s price has yet to be set, but you can visit EdibleSpoonMaker.com to keep track of updates.
