Fun With Funnels
What's more practical or obvious than disposable funnels? Made of coated, heavy-grade paper stock, which is essentially thin, white cardboard, these Fast Funnels come folded in packs of three. Just take one out of the pack, pop it open and you're ready for some serious funnel action. They are compact and remarkably easy to transport or store, as opposed to your standard, bulky plastic funnel. And you'll never have to worry about cross-contamination because you can just use a new funnel every time you need one. So simple, yet so ingenious. And remember, you can't spell "funnel" without "fun." Visit www.fastfunnel.com or call (847) 434-1560.
