Here is another quick product recommendation, and this one with a fabulous giveaway!
First, a little backstory:
I am a spatula girl. And by spatula, I mean a slab of silicone on the end of a stick that I can use to make perfect scrambled eggs, or fold cake batter, or scrape something sticky out of one vessel and into another.
I am also, it should go without saying, a lazy girl, which means that while I am turning my kitchen into a disaster area, I require multiples of nearly every utensil so I don't have to stop and wash something, and everything goes in the dishwasher.
This is particularly complicated when it comes to the spatula situation, since the really good ones have wooden handles. This means that you really have to be careful about cleaning, since stuff can get into the seam and be really disgusting. You can pull the silicone head off of the wood to avoid putting the wood in the dishwasher, but after a few times, you find that the wood and silicone decide not to love each other nearly as much as they once did, and then the head of your spatula falls off into the egg whites mid-fold or flops off into the quiche filling spraying you with liquid eggs and you get powerfully in touch with your inner vulgarian.
So when I saw the Get it Right Spatula line at the Housewares show? I was more excited than someone should probably be. In fact, I think they may have questioned my sanity. But these people, much like their name, have in the simplest possible terms, gotten it right.
Their spatulas are a single piece of silicone that is heat proof to 464 degrees, and heat resistant to 550! The weight is perfect, the flex is strong enough to work with stiff cookie dough but soft enough to make perfect eggs. The whole thing goes right in the dishwasher, and since there are no seams, it cleans like a dream.
They have four sizes, a regular size called the ultimate, which will be your go-to for almost every application. Then there is a long one with a slimmer head that is a total game changer for getting things out of jars. Charming Suitor is a peanut-butter on english muffin for breakfast EVERY DAY kinda guy, and this skinny version is his new best friend. Then there is a mini version, which is like Honey I Shrunk the Ultimate, and I love it for little jobs like scraping homemade salad dressing out of the mixing bowl and into a container. The Pro is a serious and massive version that is great if you do a lot of large batch baking.
Even cooler? They come in a dozen awesome colors. So you can match your decor, or buy each size in a different color so they are easy to spot in the drawer. I have a Pro in Magenta, an Ultimate in Teal, a Skinny in Orange, and minis in both Gray and Lime. But for your kitchen, they also come in White, Black, Lavender, Sky Blue, Pink, Red and Yellow. There is even a set that is striated to look like BACON!
And yes, I do, in fact, wish I had one of each size in every color, despite recognizing that having four dozen spatulas is insanely ridiculous. But sometimes you are feeling lavender, and sometimes you are feeling yellow, and that is just how things go. I own it.
Because I love you all, and because Get it Right is such a rockstar company, I have THREE SETS of spatulas to giveaway to three lucky Chickens! You will get a set of three spatulas, an Ultimate, a Skinny and a Mini, and even better, you get to custom pick your colors! Three different colors, all the same, your choice.
Just comment below to enter, hopefully telling us why these spatulas will absolutely change your life and cooking, by 11:59 pm CST on July 31, and on August 1 I will announce the three winners!
