Why ? Why spiral shape ?
I have a question to kill ! Why people need a wooden stick , spiral shape around its head to take the honey? Why don't just use a spoon ?and why spiral shape ???
My colleague helps me to do some research, and got me the answers !
1) If you're speaking of the kind of honey dipper that has grooves in it, its advantage over a spoon is that it is less likely to drip. Thehoney wraps around it as you twirl it, and it's less messy than using a spoon.
2)The grooves allow the honey (with a high surface tension) to be pulled in while they are horizontal, but flow out when they are vertical. I've seen both plastic and wood, so I would guess there is no particular advantage to the material, other that what is cheap to make.
Now It does make some sense to me or, I shouldn't have 2nd thought on people's innovative design?! (grin) ...
