It single handedly takes care of a lot of kitchen nightmares which we encounter everyday while cooking. Whether it's preventing your plastic spatula from melting, the wooden one from scorching, or keeping the metal utensils cool, the Snug's got you covered. Who hasn't experienced the frustration and embarrassment of the serving spoon sliding into food? What about trying to keep that pot lid open a little while cooking to prevent the contents from bubbling out? The Snug is your answer to all of the above and more!

SO MANY PROBLEMS

Everyone knows how agonizing it is to hold that untouchably hot metal utensil handle, how frustrating it is to see that wooden handle with scorch marks and how ugly your melted plastic utensil handle looks because its been resting on the edge of the pan that has been on the stove for too long. Not to mention the melted plastic from spatula heads getting into your food! Also, does the serving spoon slipping into the serving dish sound familiar? How about those messy drips when you move your spoon from the pot to the spoon rest? Arghh.. 

  • Metal handles get too hot to touch.
  • Wooden handles get ugly burn marks and eventually get thrown away.
  • Plastic handles melt easily.
  • Serving spoon slipping into the serving dish is embarrassing and unhygienic!

ONE SINGLE SOLUTION

These problems are ubiquitous and have been existing in our kitchens for ages. Well, we at ThinkHat love to cook and absolutely love to have people over for a nice meal. Looking at these common problems, we conducted a survey and we were not at all surprised by the feedback. Every single person who took the survey faced the exact same problems and was eager for someone to find a solution. This is when we started drawing the picture of a simple yet elegant kitchen gadget in our mind, this one single solution, that will take care of all the above problems.

Cute, Smart and Flexible...no pun intended!

After months of brain storming, mechanical and industrial design, several iterations of prototypes, feedback from trial groups and intense testing, we came up with an optimally engineered, aesthetically seductive and Patent Pending innovation - the SNUG.

 

 

SNUG IS A SMART KITCHEN GADGET

YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEEDED SO BAD!

PUTTING THE SNUG ON

SNUG comes in two sizes and can be instantly attached like a sleeve to the handle of almost any cooking or serving utensil handle out there, regardless of the material, shape or size.

  • To install, just grab the utensil with its handle, insert the handle into the top slot of the SNUG.
  • For thinner handles, just twist the handle inside the SNUG slot. 

Once installed, it can stay there as long as you want it to be there.

  • 2. Silde Snug along the handle.
  • 3. Stop where you want.
  • 4. Twist for thinner handles.
  • 5. Snug is on the handle.
  • 6. Snug sits on the edge.
  • 7. Seat the Snug's notch tightly against the pot's edge.
  • 8. Snug is On!

 

THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA CLEARLY SHOWS THE DIFFERENCE

Thermal image shows the spoon handle getting as hot (shown by red areas on the tip of the handle) as the pot while cooking, so it gets impossible to touch.

With the use of snug, the spoon handle stays much cooler (shown by green area on the tip of the handle) and closer to the ambient room temperature.

  • Use Snug on metal handles to prevent your hands from burning.
  • Hold the metal handles without thinking twice - with Snug.
  • Save your favorite wooden handles from burn marks!
  • Melted plastic spatulas are a thing of the past!
  • No need to throw away expensive plastic spatulas anymore!
  • No need for spoon rests. Snug on whisks keeps the mess where it belongs - in the pan!

PREVENT SERVING SPOONS FROM SLIDING INTO THE SERVING DISH

CONSTRUCTION

SNUG is made of FDA compliant, high temperature grade Silicone material, that is heat resistant up to 570°F (or 300°C), sufficiently more than what you would ever need in the kitchen. This helps thermally insulate the utensil handle and keeps it cool. SNUG is optimally designed to provide adequate flexibility around the top slot so that it can easily accommodate most of the utensil handle's shapes and sizes and also provide just the right stiffness at the bottom claw to give that nice “snug” feel when placing on the pot.
