It’s curves are perfect. It is narrow enough at the tip to fit into the edges of pots and the handle flairs out to just-the-right size for my hand to grasp. This stirring stick has been in my kitchen tool pot forever. If I ever pare down my all the items in my kitchen (which, if I’m being honest, will probably never happen) this tool would always stay. I can’t remember where I picked it up or if someone gave it to me. Perhaps I’ve had it since the cradle or since I first started collecting kitchen gadgets.
Wooden spoons and stirrers can be so personal. If you want to see some amazing ones click here, they’re pricey but delicious. I look forward to seeing Herriott Grace’s new inventory every few months just so I can drool. You can often find a nice selection of wooden spoons at your local craft fair. My suggestion is to pick up one that catches your eye. See how it feels in your hand. Close your eyes and stir it in an imaginary pot. Is it a keeper or should you try others? You’ll know when you’ve found the one.
I would love to know what your favorite wooden spoon or stirring stick is. Send me an email email@example.com* with a picture attached and I’ll feature them all in a future post.

One response to “Favorite Tool #7 My Wooden Stirring Stick”
I always have a wooden spoon in my implement pot. I don’t really use them to cook with. I use them to fish stull out from under the refrigerator and to stretch my reach for things on upper shelves. Maybe I will use mine to stir something with soon. I’m inspired now.
