No-Spill Chai Pour - Saucepan with Spout

BEHIND THE SCENES

The No-Spill Chai Pour

By  | 

Our Chai Dice Kickstarter project wrapped up a couple weeks ago and one of the questions we received most often was:

Where'd you get that cool saucepan with the pour spout?

The mysterious piece of cookware makes a brief appearance in the video at minute 1:05 and effortlessly pours hot chai through a strainer without the smallest drop of spillage. It really does work wonderfully well for pouring just about any hot liquid.

The perfect pour spout for chai making.

The perfect pour spout for chai making.

I'm happy to report that it's my trusty wood-handled vintage Le Creuset sauce pan. It has spent hundreds of hours on my stovetop cooking up all sorts of delicious pourable concoctions for about as long as I can remember.

These essential vintage pieces are available via eBay from time to time, and I highly recommend picking one up for your own chai-making adventures. Scour the selection of saucepans with spouts below until you find one in just the right color.

Lea Redmond is always looking for the poem hiding inside things: a salt shaker, a clothes tag, a hand gesture, a cloud. She is infinitely intrigued by the way experiences can slip from the ordinary to the extraordinary and she endeavors to design things that hold this possibility. Leafcutter Designs, her creative studio in Berkeley, CA, makes the world more playful and peaceful one little experience at a time.
