  4. Pouring Batter: Funnels with wider openings are handy for pouring batter or liquid mixtures into molds or containers, such as when making pancakes, muffins, or cakes.

  5. Canning and Preserving: Funnels are essential tools for canning and preserving fruits, vegetables, or jams. They help fill jars with hot liquids without causing spills or contamination.

  6. Adding Ingredients: When cooking or baking, a funnel can be used to add dry ingredients like flour, sugar, or powdered spices into containers or mixing bowls with precision.

  7. Decorating: For precision in decorating cakes or pastries with icing or glaze, a funnel can be used to pour the desired amount onto the baked goods without making a mess.
