I'll have mine with cream and finger...



Ok Folks, 


Sometimes I get critical becuase I believe that some things are unnecessary or over designed. When I do, people tend to pop us and tell me how wrong I am, and that's fine. We are all allowed to have different opinions. So it is going to be up to all of you to come up with a defense of this one, 'cause I got nothing. 




This is the Finger Stirring lid from New Plan Design and all I can say is, 

Really...Really?

You know, certain tools have stuck around through history because they do their job just fine. Such is the case with the spoon. It does just fine .Is it perfect? No, but it's ok. 


Where as with this "Lid" I really don't know what do say. 
I know that in the States we don't use lids while actively drinking from coffee cups (travel cups excluded). And that in some countries they do. But still.   


And are you really gaining that much in functionality by eliminating the need for a spoon but adding a weird lid? Never mid the fact that this "finger" is always going to be hanging out in your beverage? No Thank You.


whatever...

I'm with you on this one. You would have to figure out how full would be too full (the point at which it would over flow due to the lid finger) and it seems like the whole thing would be very messy.

And I just don't see it functioning that well anyway. Would it freely spin? Probably not.

Use a frickin' spoon.
