Retrieving a teaspoon
That's how our magnets can prevent scalding

Of course, there would have been other ways to get the lost spoon out, but as a magnet fan I always have some magnets laying around. My rescue mission went as follows: I held several block magnets to the outside of the glass and moved them up, along with the spoon and without getting scalded.
Note from the supermagnete team:
- Not all silverware is magnetic - you might want to check before you start a spoon rescue mission.
- Don't keep the magnets too long on the hot glass - they lose part of their magnetisation at temperatures over 80 °C (see relevant FAQ).
