The Internet Loves This Spatula
You need this in your kitchen drawer, stat.
There are plenty of kitchen tools you put a ton of thought into buying. Dutch ovens, air fryers, coffee machines, the list goes on. Here's one more item for you to put on your best-of list.
After raising nearly $50,000 dollars on Kickstarter, GIR's (Get It Right) spatula line is poised to become the Internet’s favorite.
So what’s so great about it, you ask? The greatness lies in its design.
Made with non-toxic, BPA-free silicone, it’s a happy medium between flimsy and sturdy, making it perfect for scraping moist batter off a mixing bowl as well as nudging a fried egg around a hot pan. Not only does the silicone exterior resist heat up to 550 degrees F, but GIR claims the spatula’s fiberglass core is more heat resistant metal. Translation? You won’t have to worry about burning your finger when you pick it up. And since this spatula doesn’t have any superfluous holes or slots, it’s super easy to clean by hand.
I recently picked up GIR’s spatula and totally understand the hype. At first touch, I could tell that this was strong enough to mix up stiff cookie dough or mix my stir-fried vegetables. But my favorite part of this unassuming spatula is its heat retention. You see, I’ve had plastic spatulas and spoons distort or bend after being exposed to a lot of heat. But thanks to its clever design, I have some peace of mind whenever I prop my spatula against a fry pan.
Right now, GIR’s spatula is available in multiple sizes, ranging from an eight-inch Mini to a 16-inch Pro — and colors. That way, you’re bound to find one that’s just right for your kitchen. While prices vary by size and color on Amazon, the spatula is typically available for under $25. Sure, it may seem pricey for a spatula but if you factor in how much you spend on a bunch of sub-par options, it’ll pay for itself in the long run.
