Tate Otama standard / mini
Soup Ladie

This "standing ladle" was designed to stand independently, taking in mind the density and weight of the materials used.

Use your limited kitchen space more effectively with "Tate Otama".

[2010 Red Dot Design Award ]

There are two sizes : mini and standard. The colours of the ladle matches with the saucer.

The base is flat hence, it can stand on its own.

Designer Comment : 
Cooking space can be limited when living a cramped city life. In order to take advantage of what little space is available and make cooking more enjoyable, I wanted to design a ladle that you can stand up instead of placing on its side. The bottom part of the ladle is flat, but food can still be scooped easily with the curved inside of this new-style ladle.
