One flat one packetaged with the Clother-line-clips - for kink.

Two for speading adible.

The question has arisen (Please don't ask from where. You don't really want to know. Trust me on this.), "If a spatula is not used as a spatula, is it still a spatula?" For instance, if you keep a spatula in your car to scrape ice from your windshiled, is it still a spatula or is it an ice scraper? If you use a spatula to stir paint, is it still a spatula or is it a paint stirrer? In other words, is spatulaness inherent in the physical item itself, or is it determined by the use to which that item is put?

You may rest assured that I await your comments with bated breath.

If you use a knife as a screw driver, will the screw know the difference? If you use an AK 47 to scramble eggs, will the guests laugh nervously? If you use a living Bengal tiger as a placemat, will your guests be happy you have the AK 47?

To clarify my answer Grasshopper, in a word, gimme a hit.

Ummm, I have bunches of 'em. Not as many as I did have. My neice came over in a bug hurry to borrow a slotted spatula the other day. Sure, I said. She'd bring it right back as soon as she got a new one.
    When she brought it back, I asked her what she had been cooking. "OH, I wasn't cooking anything. I just needed to clean out the cat's litter box!"
   That particular spatula is no longer in my utensil drawer.

ah, yes, the calluses on my fingers are most certainly not from playing guitar. They could be, but ... but ...

I subscribe to the sRS mode of cooking. I've burnt myself pretty good, too. But it's the best way to feel where the food is, as I don't see. My cooking teacher always said that too ... "just don't show anyone what you're doing. Heheheheheh.

I don't burn myself though [knock wood]--I think we all learn what our threshold is as far as dealing with heat, and people who cook a lot are in a good position to refine this sense. I wouldn't pick up anything out of hot oil, for example, or stick my hand in boiling water. But the physics of cooking (in conjunction with the chemistry of cooking) is such that it can be a hands-on process. As Moonglow noted to me a little while ago, it's like knowing if you can reach in (sans implement, in our case, bamboo tongs) and get that slice of toast out of the toaster without burning yourself.

I'm sure that many of the above spatulas are actually pallet knives. We need a better working definition!

I have been feeling very guilty about starting this thread. A have come to realize that spatula ownership has the potential for creating even more division among our membership than already exists. It's not enough that we must be pigeon-holed as liberal or conservative, religious or secular, purist or eclectic, accordion player or accordion hater. Now we're either spatula-rich or spatula-poor. Will those who have lots of spatulas begin to shun those who only have a few? Will those who have few spatulas come to think of the spatula-rich as being elitist snobs?

Will someone please delete this thread before it causes Mudcat civil war?

Bonus points:

You're in the middle of mixing banana bread batter. You used your last good (locatable) spatula to scrape the lightly beaten eggs from their bowl into the stand mixer. You reach over and drop it into the sink. Now you have the mixer going and need to scrape down the sides.

Do you:

Pick up the next spatula that is in the pitcher of utensils on the counter, even if it's that big honker that you never use because of its size (and because you use it so rarely you know it's dusty)

Scrounge around for something else that will do the trick

Grab the spatula out of the dishpan where you just dropped it and use it as is because it landed on a clean surface and didn't touch the water yet?

Follow-up:

If it did touch the water, do you wash it before you reuse it?

Is a quick rinse under the faucet sufficient to render it reusable or must you use soapy water (knowing that the water in the dishpan is old and no longer soapy)?


Leave your papers by the door on the way out. Thank you.

Perhaps if you worked harder you'd have enough spatulae, but obviously you are either lazy slobs or God has it in for you, or both. My life has been filled with the joy that having lots of spatulae can bring because I have lived a good, pure, God-fearing life. So there.

yuck! RAW EGG has touched that spatula! don't use it for ANYTHING ELSE until it has been sanitized in 160 degree (F) water for 10 minutes and or a 1 percent bleach solution for 15 minutes. Or both.   Otherwise you are at high risk for food poisoning.

You should probably dispose of the utensil and buy a fresh one. Beware of raw egg!

I must agree with my worthy colleague--and his culpa is mea culpa, too. Foolishly, I felt this thread (frivolous as it is--unlike Rapaire's thread on 1000 Virgins which speaks to a deep and important social issue) and stand by his side in his hour of shame. Please don't admonish Bruce; I am sure it was s spur-of-the-moment thing--a will 'o the wisp, a chimera of a memory of a recollection of a time when this world was a simpler place devoid of nuclear weapons, biochemical substances for use in warfare and beer that goes flat when you leave it in a glass for twelve days, and it was to the aforementioned contextual angst-causing world problems to which he was responding. Like, what's THAT about, huh? The flat beer I mean.

Anyway, please forgive Bruce for this error, and please forgive Bruce for 'jumping right in there' to fart around.

Bruce and I did NOT discuss his public apology before he made it. It was a surprise to me--and him to. Creatures of impulse: that's what humans are. Creatures of habit--that's what, OH! forget it, that's religion.

It's nice to see someone else in deeeeeep dung for a change. Thanks for takin' it for the team Bruce.

What's the difference between a democratic spatula and a communist spatula?

Like, suppose one spatula was used to flip free-range eggs (the democratic spatula) and the other--the filthy commie one--was used to flip eggs that came from chickens that were raised in captivity. OK would they have sold out to the fascist market economy system that is being manipulated by the Euro and the Yen and the Dollar? If the spatulas go to shrift, will the be absolved of their wrong doing? I ask you. And if the situations were reversed, how WOULD the hens feel about being wannabe virgins? And the spatulas?

Responses, anyone?

Well, since my conscience is bothering me for having started this thread in the first place, I have decided that since I seem to be one of the spatula-rich (or at least the spatula-upper-middle-class), I will donate some of my spatulas (spatulae) to the spatula poor so that we may strive toward spatula-parity. Others of the spatula-rich are encouraged to do the same, though it seems pretty obvious that some, like Rapaire, will horde their spatula surplus and laud it over their less fortunate comrades.

I don't want any filthy spatulas earned by the backs of the poor! Don't go doing me any favors. I'll earn my own spatulas, I don't need your help or anybody elses. And you can keep them fancy words like spatulae too. I'll use good plain English.

Listen up y'all. There is the potential for a good black market in spatulas. One of Bill's for example--specifically the metal-handled red-topped one in HIS left hand--would fetch a princely sum. But that ain't gonna happen if the darn commies start givin' the things away. Just a little food for thought.

We call them splatulas in this house....

3 French galette/crepe spatulas
1 slotted metal spatula
2 wooden spatulas
1 metal pallette knife, often wrongly called a spatula.


The galette spatulas are like the pallette knife but made of wood. One has a triangular end, the other two have round ends. Great for using on nonstick pans and in the food mixer where the bigger splatulas won't go.

A big plastic spatula for nonstick surfaces, a small metal one for bare metal, and a small & a large flexible one for scraping bowls.

When I was little, the flexible rubber ones were something new. When my mother bought her first one, she demonstrated it to me & my brother and wickedly said it meant there would be no more dish licks; so we hid it.

Okay, gang. This thread now has 85+ posts. It is time for us to begin thinking of evasive maneuvers to keep Flaminghole Red and His Band of Bungling Bungholes from sneaking in and capturing the 100th post.

As evidenced from his photo, Bill D has girded himself with spatulae and has taken a "ready to repel obnoxious shitbirds" stance. We could probably all learn a lot from Bill's example.

So, grab up your spatulas and post to this thread! We've all put a lot of work into making this thread the work of art that it is. Do not give Phlegmenco Ed an opportunity to make it just another steppingstone in his insane drive to make the 100th post to every Mudcat thread.

To answer your question, Tweed, "spatula" is from the late Latin word for "spoon". It and "spade" share common origin. But there's no suit of playing cards called "spatulas". Yet...

Aw, man, whatta brainstorm! We can jack summa those sexy pictures of spatulas that Brucie linked to and make "Spatula Playing Cards"! We could sell 'em for $3.79 a deck and give all the money to Max so he can buy new hardware 'cause this idiot thread's gonna use up all his resources.

And I almost bought another one today when the kids had me take them to the "Dollar Tree" to do some of their shopping. There they were, hanging in all of their black plastic and chrome-plated glory. A buck each. Pancake turners. Long handles with "triangle" shaped heads, like some described above. And slatted spatulas--lots!

If you ever decide to start a thread about ladels, I have a lot of those too. And I could also contribute some banter regarding various kitchen funnels, food graters, wine openers, and measuring cups. Much of this gadgetry I inherited, so it still has a slightly foreign feel in my kitchen. Oh--and my father was the KING of the Rubbermaid products, so if you want to look at plastic airtight containers, I'm your correspondent! (It wasn't enough to have the store-bought containers as containers, he also kept a lot of the plastic food containers, like yogurt and margarine tubs, because he used to buy a lot of fresh fruit every summer and freeze it in a couple of large freezers out in his shed).

But I'm sorta leery of starting derivative threads anymore 'cause there are certain people around here that'll call ya "stoopid" and "dumbass" if ya do.
