Awhile back, it occurred to me that I needed a wide-mouth funnel for canning or transferring bigger things, like dried beans, to bottles. I looked in the store and found that wide-mouth funnels start at $6, so I decided to make one out of an old 2-liter soda bottle instead.
All you do is cut around the top of the bottle and invert it so it works like a funnel. Very simple and it works great. I’ve used the funnel countless times and even wash it in the dishwasher when it’s dirty.
And the best part is that it didn’t cost a thing.
