You might ask, What's the big deal about spatulas? A spatula is a spatula, right? Up until recently, I might have said so. I've tried dozens of spatulas over the years (as you may know, I have a serious gadget habit), and this is the first one I've been completely happy with.
The biggest problem with most spatulas is that they are a silly two-piece design. If you've ever had the business end pop off the handle and get stuck in whatever you're making, you know what I'm talking about. Or you might not have realized it was a two-piece gadget until you were washing it one day and it came apart and you spotted moldy gunk inside!
A few one-piece spatulas have found their way into my kitchen and have quickly been shown the way out! They were so rigid as to be completely useless. I always thought, Why can't someone make a good spatula? Well, someone finally did. GIR, ProductofGIR.com. Love these unibody silicone tools! One piece of molded food-grade silicone with reinforced interiors, heat-proof to 464 degrees, eco-friendly material, BPA-free, easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
This giveaway is open to readers everywhere in the world!
The Ultimate Spatula is the one to start with, the one most home cooks would use most frequently. There's also the Skinny, perfect for blender jars or scraping the last of the mayonnaise out of the tall jar; the Mini, just what's needed for getting all the tomato paste out of those tiny cans or scraping small measuring cups; and the Pro, really hefty for big jobs.
And there's the Scraper (bowl scraper and bench scraper), which also serves as a ruler; the Ultimate Spoon, which I'm expecting to become a firm favorite; the Ultimate Flip and Pro Flip, both of which look great for right-handers (I'm a leftie, but my husband can use them for outdoor grilling); and the Silicone Lids, which can be used for cooking or storage.
The entire line comes in an array of beautiful colors, but what color did I choose? Black. For every single item, black. If you win the giveaway, you might want to be a little more adventurous than I! The spatulas may be more expensive than other brands, but they are guaranteed for life.
