I believe I’ve said this a hundred times…. I LOVE quality kitchen equipment!
As someone who spends 70% of her time in the kitchen, it’s imperative that I have the right tools for the job. That means tough, durable, bang-upable gear and gadgets.
Now I’m still the gal that walks through a store and sees a “mark down el cheapo” something or other and freak out!! OH MAN it’s too cheap not to get it and try it……
Let’s face it, those items are most often cheap for a reason. They’re MADE cheap! Add up all those gadgets that I’ve purchased and thrown away, and really, the only thing that remained cheap was the garbage bag that I threw them all into!
My father preached, “Buy quality and buy it once, buy crap and just keep on buying”. Now that was often in regards to fishing poles and duck hunting gear….but the same holds true with kitchen equipment. I mean, I use MY stuff to cook said fish and duck!
So I ask you this: How many spatulas, flippers, turners, etc. have you thrown away in your life? The handles break, the material melts…..We’ve ALL been there!
Now let’s take a look-see at this stuff…. This is the real deal holyfield of the utensil world!
The silicone utensil in the top picture measures approx. 12″ in length and the composite spatula at the bottom measures approx. 14″ in length. Both pieces have a loop at the end of the handle for easy hanging and storage.
