Our Uthware Utensils are made using ethically harvested North American Hard Maple (also known as sugar maple), and finished in your choice of organic, natural, and safe finishes.
Our Stir Spatula is designed to:
1. have an easy to hold comfortable, ergonomically designed handle
2. uses a large durable wide flat and straight face that is perfect for stir fry, browning onions, meat, etc.
3. hard maple resists staining
4. Doesn't scratch your cookware
Though all of our Urthware Natural 100% Canadian Sugar Maple utensils are made using their respective basic designs, please remember that they are all formed and shaped by hand and eye by artisans and therefore will all be distinctly unique and one of a kind, in size and shape.
Why is an Urthware wooden utensil better than other materials?
-Unlike steel Utensils our wooden utensils don't scratch your pots and pans, they don't heat up and burn you when you keep them on the edge of your pot, and (unless you are buying high grade stainless steel) you know what they are made of as they don't leach metals.
-Unlike plastic utensils, um, well, not sure why there is any reason for them, they are inferior and toxic. But I guess one plus is they're cheap.
-Bamboo is made using many small pieces of bamboo glued together with usually unknown cheap glues, bamboo utensils are usually thin and uncomfortable to use.
-unlike cheap wooden utensils ours are made of hard maple coming from North America only (not mystery wood), which is very durable and strong, and resists cracking and splitting. We also don't use petroleum based finishes, only natural ones. Those spoons at the store are not bare wood, they are finished in..?
-Urthware utensils are just amazing to use daily!
We have taken everything we like in utensils over the years and refined and improved them, and everything we don't we've left out! Our handles are designed to be easy to grip, easy to control, and comfortable in the hand.
