These spurtles have been hand turned out of 1 piece of Sustainably harvested Ontario Sugar Maple.
The spurtle (or "spirtle") is a traditional Scottish kitchen tool used for stirring perfect porridge. This utensil dates back from at least the fifteenth century. The rod-like shape is designed for constant stirring which prevents the porridge from congealing and so becoming lumpy. Now a days spurtles are used for anything (including as magic wands) and I love to hear from customers about how they have been putting them to use (I hear they are great for spaghetti / noodles)!
Because they are all lovingly made by hand, each spurtle is a bit different. They are finished with food safe raw linseed oil and arrive ready for action.
- Length; approximately 10-1/2"
- Width: 1/2"
- To clean, wash with soapy water, rinse and let air dry. If the finish on your bowl becomes dull over time, simply apply some wood butter, let it soak in overnight and wipe off excess. Not dishwasher safe.
The price listed is for one spurtle.
