Visitors to my market stall in Port Douglas will know this utensil as "Bev" ... a curvaceous yet stylish workhorse who is just as much at home in the most traditional of kitchens ... or the most modern.
"Several years ago, a friend named Bev approached me with a pretty tattered looking old wooden stirrer and asked if I could make her something similar. Turns out, she had owned it for 25 years and had brought it with her to Australia from New Zealand when she emigrated. Yes, I agreed, it was certainly time for an upgrade. Bev's utensil was rounded like a traditional spatula, but had a horrible flat handle ... I can't imagine it would have been comfortable at all to use. I created a stirrer that showed similar fullness and roundness in the business end, but added a curvaceous comfortable handle ... and named it "Bev" in honour of Bev." - Bob Gilmour: designer.
This Traditional Spatula is one of my most popular utensils. It appeals to people with all styles of cooking but is really best as a mixer or casserole stirrer. It is one of the heavier-bodied implements that I make, so you can apply a fair bit of force with this utensil.
This utensil is sanded to a very smooth finish and is fully sealed with a penetrating food-neutral resin product. You do not need to oil this item as the sealing procedure creates an effective moisture barrier which will greatly slow down the oxidation process during the early years of its life. The utensil will last you a very long time and will age beautifully.
