My Spurtles are made from one solid beautiful piece of wood and make a great addition to any kitchen. All my handmade wooden utensils are one piece with no joins, they all vary slightly in size and shape as they are handmade individually not mass produced. I go with the grain and shape of the wood. If there are small knots these are filled for hygiene reasons. There are no visible knots in these items. Designed by me, lovingly finished with food safe oil. Great for wood lovers who also like porridge.
Wooden Spurtles approximately 278mm or 11 inches end to end. Sometimes there are slight variations as I go with the wood.
Care Instructions
Hand wash only, dry quickly and apply a little food safe or proprietary oil to your utensils, avoid olive oil which tends to go rancid, in time the oil layers permeate the board but after that point less oiling is required, lightly sand and oil your board as necessary to enliven and make it as good as new. A little extra care in the early years and perseverance with oil treatments will reap great benefits, you will be rewarded with a beautiful item that will serve you well for many years to come.
All my wooden utensils can be safely used with other kitchenware and wood is kinder to non-stick surfaces than metal. Care should always be taken when using utensils with special coatings or surfaces or non-stick surfaces in pots and pans. Make your own judgement and use at your own risk. As a small crafts business I cannot accept any liability for any damages.
All items are carefully packaged to ensure they reach you safely and have labels and care instructions, gift ready and dispatched 1st class post, courier, or airmail. Packaging is recycled where possible and postage is at cost.
