- The Wok Stirrer
"I cook in a large old cast-iron wok a lot. It is quite heavy and can be made very hot. I wanted a wok utensil that was quite slim but evenly curved so as it could be easily 'pulled' around the sides of the wok … in a nice fluid motion, often holding the implement by the neck." - Bob Gilmour: designer.
This is a great implement for moving food around in the wok. It's the longest handled utensil in the Gilmour-designed kitchen range, so you can keep your hand a fair way from the heat. It's also very stong because of it's thickness in the handle and neck ... to compensate for it's extra length.
This wok stirrer can be used in both a forward and back-hand motion. It can be held by the handle end or grasped around the neck for use with a scooping or paddling motion. The curved edge conforms well to woks and other rounded vessels.
The Wok Stirrer also makes a great mixing spatula ... for cake and bread mixes ... because it works really well in any round bottomed vessel. It is a more specialised utensil than most others in the range ... it does a narrow range of jobs, but it does them really well.
