The Paddle Stirrer is exactly as it's name suggests ... a paddle ... for moving food such as stir fry around a big flat pan ... or turning risotto over. Whilst it can be held by the handle like a normal stirrer, the great strength of the paddle is that it can be grasped down close to the blade and swished around just like a ... paddle ... or table tennis bat.
This is the shortest cooking utensil in the Gilmour Design range, but has the widest blade. It is very stout and extremely strong and, due to it's wide shape, also makes a very good serving utensil. The Paddle is also well suited for use in shallow woks.
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.
