* One episode of ''Series/CandidCamera'' had a segment revolving around this trope, in which people were offered people a spoon with a cup of coffee. The spoon was made of something whose melting temperature was below the temperature of the coffee.
* In one episode of ''Series/GilligansIsland'' the professor is cooking up a batch of sulphuric acid to use to purify the rubber from the rubber trees. Gilligan finds the kettle bubbling and assumes it's soup. He tries to ladle some into his mouth, and burns up the ends of two spoons in the process. Then he hits upon the idea of using [[TooDumbToLive a cup]]...

* Storage of extremely spicy chili peppers, from the Naga Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) and up, must be done very carefully, as the capsaicin is distributed all around the pepper rather than just near the seeds. Capsaicin is corrosive and will burn holes on your skin, into your gloves, onto the countertops, and into non-glass containers if left in one place for too long. People who harvest and handle these peppers must wear gloves, which they must swap out for new ones every now and then before the peppers disintegrate them.

He spins the brew with a spoon, but the poisonous chemicals caused the spoon to melt, with the melted part falling into the toxic milk.

* In ''[[ComicBook/{{Asterix}} Asterix and Cleopatra]]'', Artifis tries to frame the Gauls by ([[VillainSong musically!]]) making a poisoned cake and sending it to the Queen in the Gaul's name. As he makes the "Special Iced Arsenic Cake" of a variety of toxic materials (And strangely, no eggs or flour, or indeed any non-toxic materials other than orange juice), the spoon he was stirring the mixture with dissolves. And that happened ''before'' he added the sulfuric acid. His expression as this happens makes it even more funny: He's first surprised, before grinning at the mixing bowl.
