Make A Mixer Splash Guard From A Tupperware Lid

Mixers are great, but it's incredibly easy to get batter or flour all over the place if you're not careful. You can always buy a commercial splash guard, but cooking blog The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle suggests it's much easier to just cut a hole in a Tupperware lid.

By cutting the lid of a cheap container, you can create a simple splash guard for mixers of all types. Cut out a large circle in the middle and a slit on the side to slide it over the mixer. This means the next time you're baking a cake you won't have to deal with the mess of flour that exploded everywhere when you stopped paying attention. This example uses a standup mixer, but it can certainly be used for handheld mixers as well.

    Congratulations, you just made void your lifetime warranty, that Tupperware carries...
    Give yourself a head slap Thorin, and while you're at it, give the rest of your CTRL-C, CTRL-V colleagues one too.

      Dude, if you're cutting a hole in something I hardly think you need to worry about warranties!

      But yes, the Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V style of "writing" on this site is getting ridiculous!

    Have you seen the price of Tupperware lately?

    Cheaper to buy the commercial splash guard and you don't ruin one of your lids either!
