A spoon rest (also known as a dublé) is a piece of kitchenware that serves as a place to lay spoons and other cooking utensils, to prevent cooking fluids from getting onto countertops,[1][2][3] as well as keeping the spoon from touching any contaminants that might be on the counter (the rest is easier to keep clean[4]).

A typical design of a spoon rest is that of an "oversized spoon" with a shallow bowl and a notch on a side or an oversized ladle on feet (so called ladle rest). The rests are made of many materials, including wood, plastic, ceramic, stainless steel.[4]
