What is a Spurtle?

A spurtle is kitchen utensil that's specially designed to stir thick pots of stews and sauces. It's design helps you scrape the sides and bottom of the pot to prevent sticking and burning. It also makes a wonderful all purpose spatula you'll find new uses for every day.  

How Do You Use One?

To avoid sticking and burning in your pot, use this helpful utensil to stir your recipe frequently. The shape of the utensil is perfect for getting the bottom, sides and the corner of the pot while you stir. 

According to legend, a spurtle should be held with the right hand and you should stir in a clockwise direction!

Depending on the style of your utensil, it may also make wonderful everyday all purpose spatulas as well.
