No one wants the additional tasks of cleaning gravy from a white counter top while in the middle of making a great meal. Not to mention trying to remove red sauces that will cause stains. Moreover, putting your spoon in different places makes it more prone to have contact with contaminants such as germs from raw meat. That will totally ruin your tasty meal and possibly make one ill.
