I'm planning on re-introducing this bit into my act and am wondering, if anyone here does it, what type of spoon you use? My choice last time I did it was not a good one.

Thanks!

I found mine at a restaurant, a long time ago. I just got lucky. I think a soup spoon would be best, because of the high walls, or deep bowl, however you wanna say it.

The one I used was aluminum, under the theory that it would not conduct or retain heat as much as standard spoon.

Theory is nice, reality is painful.

Not familiar with the routine, but would a ladle with a wooden grip hold off the heat?

Stephon, you have learned (the hard way) that aluminum conducts heat 10 times faster than steel. It also has a lower melting point, about half that of steel. If you held a 10 inch rod of aluminum in your hand and heated the tip to glowing hot, you would burn yourself. You want something with poor conductivity, look for wood, plastic, glass, silicon, that sort of material.

Hmmm, does that mean that if the aluminum was hot, but not enough that I got burned, that I would be ok using a regular spoon?

I'd thought about using a soup spoon from a Chinese restaurant, but if I can use something I already have, that would be easier.

Thanks!

When I was doing the routine, I used a cheap stainless 'iced tea' spoon (the spoon with the really long handle).

Stephon, PM me so I can figure out exactly what would be best.

And Brett, a glass spoon should be an extremely easy project for you. All you need is a bigger spoon as a form.

True. But I'm lazy.
