Yes, Bill D, you do need to take another picture.

While I was counting my spatulas, this thread has deteriorated to include all sorts of kitchen utinsels. Thats called thread drift. Please stick to the topic.

If spatulas with melted handles qualify, I have the following:

2 flat metal
2 flat metal slotted
1 curved metal slotted (for fritters, fish, meatballs, etc.)
1 rubber spatula (somewhere)
1 curved metal slotted in the basement next to the litter box
l cookie spatula (palette)
2 puddy knives (they are technically spatulas)
2 dry wall spatulas
1 for glue
2 paint scrapers
and yes, 1 wooden spatula to which I am sentimentally attached because it was hand carved by a friend. It is flat on one side.

SIXTEEN !!!

15 if the melted handle is disqualified.

I laughed myself silly reading this thread !!!!!!!!!!

I think it would be a great name for a band. The Spatulas or...

The Fabulous Spatulas
The Multiple Spatulas
Spatula Deluxe
The Handy Spatulas...

Thank you Bee-dubya-ell you have shown me the light. No longer will I live in ignorance of my spatulas, but take each moment to remember that whenever I need one, there will be a spatula. In moments of peril remember, spatulas may come in disguise, but if you look into yourself you can find the spatulaness in whatever item you think about (except bowling balls)

hey! That BIG spatula in my pic....durned if it didn't prove useful just this afternoon! We had us this slushy snow the other day, and then some cold weather, and it left a layer of icy gunk on my driveway which resisted all efforts to shovel. ...so I says to myself, "self..."...(I call myself that at times).."...this icy gunk is a LOT like a batch of hash browns that is tryin' to stick to the bottom of yer skillet...and what do you do with them? Why, you draw lines in 'em with the sharp edge of yer spatula, breakin' 'em up into managable sections, then you kinda scrunchy-scrape 'em away from the pan!"

So I (the aforementioned self) did just that....chop, chop, chop...making a checkerboard of that gunky ice..(or was it icy gunk?)...then I just slud (as Dizzy Dean woulda said) that big 'ol spatula..(which just 'might' be useful for removin' old tile some day) under the chunks, and LO! asphalt appeareth!...

Now iffen it hadn't been for Mudcat and this inspiration of this thread, I mighta been out there with chemicals and old garden spades and a lot of cuss words! And I got Dick Greenhaus and Susan of DT coming down to stay with me Friday so as to make CAMSCO available at FSGW's one day mini-festival, and there will be a decent place to park and walk. Yessir...serendippity, thy name is Mudcat!

Ah! But remember, Layah, that spatulaness is determined by the use to which an item is put, not by what some moron supposedly made it for. An old credit card (or a brand new one for that matter) can easily be used to scrape a Bush sticker from a car. Therefore, a credit card is a spatula if it is used as a spatula. So do not bemoan your spatula-poorness. Spatulas are everywhere! You just have to look for them.

GADZOOKS!!!! It appears that the spatulas are escaping from this thread! Just tonight, I've seen spatula references in several other threads! Yeah, sure, I put most of those references in those threads, but that's beside the point. I still saw them! And I have a sneaky feeling it's only going to get worse.

It may even get as bad as Flamingo Ted's insane desire to make 100th posts. I can see the possibility of people tripping over each other to be the first to stick a spatula reference into a thread:

I'm really offended that my next door neighor still has a 'Bush/Cheney' sticker on his car. Should I have a talk with him?

Hell no! Just take yerself a spatula over to his house at 2:00 AM and scrape the damned thing off!


This spatula infection could become a serious problem. Heck, it could be worse than the Margaret Thatcher blow-up dolls. It could even be worse than, dare I say it? Shatner! Nah! Nothing could be that bad.

Pie servers are spatulas. Of course they don't think of themselves as spatulas. Just because they don't have to mess with uncooked foods and hot grease and because they're sometimes made of silver. Well don't let 'em fool ya. They're still spatulas. Just spatulas that got above their raisin's, that's all.

ah, Bee-dubya-ell ...you have been hitting the Plato way too hard!

and Noreen...surely any spatula with slots does not qualify as a 'fish slice'?..(a term I did not know). I have only had one item that REALLY looked like what you posted....with slots being the major defining characteristic, and that angled fron edge. It died years ago.

I did have one 'palette knife' like gadget in my pic...good thing I didn't dig out the pie servers!

Thanks for those definitions, SRS. They only serve to reinforce the idea that spatulaness is not an absolute, concrete, definable characteristic, but a continuum, a vortex as it were, of properties and applications. So, like the Tao, we cannot say with certainty what a spatula is. We can only measure an item against our own personal idea of spatulaness and decide for ourselves if a given item is or is not a spatula.

I am reasonably confident that a 1959 Ford station wagon is not a spatula. But, there are doubtlessly components of that 1959 Ford station wagon that could be used as spatulas if they existed in isolation instead of as parts of the car. Therefore, it could be said that a 1959 Ford station wagon exhibits a small degree of spatulaness. Its glove box door exhibits a somewhat higher degree of spatulaness. And that dustpan that was left under the driver's side seat when the thing was hauled to the junkyard is pretty darned much a spatula.

A bowling ball, on the other hand, exhibits absolutely no spatulaness.

Just to be perfectly clear about what we're discussing here:
Spa.tu.la


Definitions of Spatula on the Web:

A small implement with a broad, flat, flexible blade that is used to mix plasters, elastomers and similar substances. Artists' spatulas are usually finer and more flexible, while cement spatulas are stouter and stiffer.
www.duke.edu/~mtb3/castingmanual/appendix_a.html

(plural: spatulae) Ground and polished fingers of soft stone (often slate) about five inches long and of uncertain use from the Bronze Age
www.halifax-today.co.uk/specialfeatures/triviatrail/a22_s.html

implement with flat surface, used to lay strands of hair on for colour application.
www.kamalsalon.com/sglossary.htm

a turner with a narrow flexible blade

So that's what a fish-slice is! Blowzabella mentioned haveing two of them earlier in this thread but I had no idea what she was talking about. I thought maybe she had a couple of dried up old pieces of haddock in her utensil drawer. But I can see where the name could be appropriate. If you use your imagination a slotted turner thingie does sorta look like a slice of fish. Sorta... Like if maybe you've been hittin' the Bushmills bottle and/or the ganja pipe pretty hard...

I bought a new spatula this morning for a buck, just in honor of this thread. If I didn't have to finish up and and get to work, I'd scan it and send a long a photo. Maybe later. It is good up to 430oF (which isn't really that much if you're near a hot skillet, but you won't kill it with boiling water).

The items you enumerate above may not merit a thread of their own, but what about KITCHEN KNIVES? How many knives to I have in the kitchen? There are a couple of sets, then there are all of the little paring knives, the steak knives, the deadly fiddle-bow bread knife that I keep in the box and never use, it's so sharp, the fancy Finnish filet knives, the . . .

On the other hand, I have only two rolling pins. One I inherited from my great aunt's kitchen, out of some really heavy dark wood like rosewood, and has only one handle. And the thinner lightweight one. They have different uses, and I choose which to use by it's weight much in the way you might choose a screwdriver. They may have the same size point, but for leverage do you need a short driver or a long driver?

And if you stray into the tool drawer and the garage workshop. . .

As requested- palette knives which I use in the kitchen for spreading icing smoothly on cakes, but I have just realised are named so from their use in mixing and spreading paint on and artist's palette.

I also take issue with some of you (Bill!) calling a spatula, what I would call a fish slice ... I suppose I would think of a spatula being used for scraping out a bowl, while a fish slice would be for lifting out of the pan, and serving, cooked food.
There again, I also stir things with my plastic fish slice...

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ah worked fer my spatulae and Ah ain't a-gonna sit here and let no stinkin' commie nazis come 'round and take 'em! I don' wanna hear none of that pinko socialist "spatula parity" talk, neither. You want a collection of spatulae like mine you kin damned well work fer it like I did and my daddy did and my granddaddy and great-granddaddy did, ya long-haired commie hippie freak!

They'll git my spatulae when they pry 'em from mah cold dead hands!!!

LOL, Bill. Thanks for that. Good shot by the way.

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.
