Funnel Vision

Forgive me if you know these already – but if you don’t, they are such useful tips and worth passing on.

When you are pouring things through a funnel, they will funnel faster if there is an airspace between the funnel and the container.

So not like this


But like this – a teaspoon handle slipped into the neck of the bottle creates a sufficient gap to speed things up.


Powder [flour etc] also funnels faster with some air

This is some cooking oil, being filtered through a piece of kitchen paper. I have a great fondness for bottles with these wire closures!


If I am pouring powder through a funnel, I drop a skewer into it first.

Then if the powder clogs up, I can wriggle the skewer and it starts everything flowing freely again.


  1. I didn't know this! Thank you!

  2. Great tips! I did not know that about the air flow!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
