Good idea, but doesn't completely seal allowing whatever you're pouring (hamburger grease in my case) to pour out from under the silicone. Also slipped completely off when pouring cupcakes into the pan creating one huge pile of cupcake batter. As much as I enjoy cleaning up messes, I have relegated the Slipoura to the bottom of the gadget drawer.
A Must for the Kitchen 8/6/2013
This is such a fantastic gadget. I grew up using the lid to strain whatever I was making. I can do that but it's really hot when steam pours up your arms. With this you only need one arm holding the pot and nothing slips through to the sink. And it works on any size pot. Great for the kids that want to help making mac & cheese or whatever. They have no problems using. Just put in top of dishwasher with rest of dishes and ready for next time. I love it. Great invention.
Slipoura is GREAT! 6/10/2013
The longer we played with Silpoura, the more uses we found for this handy gadget. You can drain pasta, strain grease from bacon and hamburgers, drizzle melted chocolate like a pro, and pour cupcake and pancake batter without drips or splatters. And that’s just in the kitchen. In the garage or workshop, Silpoura makes it a breeze to pour paint and stains. What a great idea and gadget for my wife who is always struggling to drain bacon grease into a coffee can.
It works 1/23/2013
It works great if you make sure it is clipped on correctly.
Love it for draining paste.
Nifty kitchen prodcut 1/11/2013
Works very well on most skillets and pans. I have one set of cookware with a flare out edge for the pan lids to set on. I have to be careful using the device on that set as it can sometimes slip out of place. But, overall I really like the product.
Everything was as expected :- 1/10/2013

Put To Good Use 12/13/2012
peeech from N. Augusta, SC
Ordered these for my wife. She uses them and no complaints, so they gotta be at least OK!!!!!! They appear to work fine as long as they properly fit the rim of what you're pouring from.
We just received them the other day, but haven't had a chance to use them. Overall we're satisfied with this product.
Nice Product 12/12/2012
John from Antigo, WI
As advertised. Something I have been looking for for a long time.
Like the Product 12/12/2012
I haven't used the product yet but I know I am going to like it, in fact, I intend to order more as gifts.
works well 12/12/2012
the device was bought as a present and it works very well. No issue recommending it to others
Great Product 12/12/2012
Not the best solution for Grains 12/2/2012
I am impressed by the efficient packaging. My first attempt to use this product was to re-fill my daily spice rack bottle from the stock bottle in my pantry. (Cumin Seeds to be specific). The silpoura fit perfectly as advertised. But when I poured the small tabs built for the strainer disrupted the flow and actually spilt 10% of them outside the bottle.
I do feel that for liquids this should not be an issue and thus the product should work as advertised. Yet, not perfect for dry stuff.
Useful tool. 11/27/2012
Clever and effective.
They realy work......... 11/18/2012
Rev Clifford from Portland,Or
I should have had these along time ago.....................
great product 11/18/2012
very happy that i don't lose as much meat in the trash anymore
The Silpoura works as advertised 11/16/2012
I've only used it once so far. The Silpoura did the job (with no leakage around the edges) & while the strainer easily detaches, it stays in place nicely during the pouring process.
Product not great 11/16/2012
Slips out of place too easily
Doesn't work well on smaller pot 11/16/2012
I haven't tried using this yet on a large frying pan, but when using with a smaller pan full of hummingbird nectar, the nectar went around the spout, over the sides of the Silpoura, into the sink. It didn't work properly until the pot was only half full, at which time it would have been just as easy to pour directly into a funnel.

Works greatt 11/16/2012
Always hated trying to drain grease and/or water out of pots & pans full of hot food. Used one of these to drain ground beef and it worked GREAT! Made it so much easier.

BEN from 42701
Simply amazing and wonderful product.
This item works just as described. I used it for draining the grease from my burger (my intended use) and it worked like a charm! I got the 2 pack and shared with my sister. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Nice product. Many different uses in the kitchen and around the house.
Still evaluating 11/10/2012
These are soft, silicone things that contour to your pan, etc. There is a little clip that connects the thing to the pan. It is a bit scary because this clip is does not hold very tight and the spout slides off the pan very easily. I have tried this with water but not my main purpose of getting it yet; for grease. I am nervous that the weight of the shifting food will slide the spout off. We shall see...

Sri from NY
Interesting gadget 8/7/2012
Took a minute to figure out how to apply it to a pan, but it seems to work as advertised. Have yet to try it on something like grease from ground beef, but it works well enough on liquids.
Spout for pouring 7/17/2012
Carol from San Diego

Z from Miami, Fl.
Works great 7/10/2012
Works as described. Only con is that the little strainer attachment sometimes won't stay in place. Just requires a little adjustment from time to time.
Looks good 7/9/2012
Jim from Old Town, Fl
Appears to be able to do the job as advertised.

Very handy in the kitchen and useful for all sauces and liquids
I love Sloppy Joes! 7/9/2012
Works great!! I've always had trouble pouring the grease out of my ground beef. This works perfect.
Silpoura works 7/9/2012
Linda Amar from Shelton, WA
This is an interesting product. It attaches firmly to pots and pans, allowing pouring of liquids into smaller vessels. I guess it also works on dry goods like sugar but I haven't tried it for that. I received two, and gave one to a friend.
Clipon Spout 7/9/2012
Kevin from Kenmore, NY
It is a useful product that could be more useful with a slightly higher profile. Despite that, I now find myself reaching for it for every pot of boiling water. It is convenient.
Great product! 7/6/2012
I love this product! This is something I've been looking for and never could find. I can't believe how easy it is to use.
makes pouring pancakes or cupcakes a LOT less messy
Glad to have it...... 7/6/2012
As expected. Very convenient item.
Great unique product! 7/6/2012
Product is unique and helpful!
completely satisfied. as usual. 7/5/2012
barbara from warfordsburg, pa
expect to use the silpoura for everyday cooking as well as winemaking-- makes that job less messy. strainer helps eliinate chunks of fruit from the "must."
Useful product 7/5/2012
So far this Silpoura product is working just as advertised and is very useful. I have been following the use instructions closely. The instructions do note that the strainer piece can removed if it is not going to be used, by cutting its two attachment straps. I found that I can just lift the strainer piece off its four securing pegs and flip it over out of the way without cutting its straps. That way the strainer stays with the main pouring unit and does not get lost if it is needed later.
Good idea 7/5/2012
Captain Kirk from Austin, Texas
Although cooking grease may not be your main concern, this is very handy for draining juices from any cooking. Since few pans have a suitable pouring spout, this enhances the effort greatly
Innovative product 7/5/2012
Lisa from Council Bluffs, Iowa
I thought the silpoura would probably only work in a narrow pot that you would boil water in, but much to my surprise it worked great to drain ground beef in a large diameter frying pan. It doesn't take much space to store or to clean in the dishwasher like a traditional colander, so I am very happy with my new kitchen gadget.
