The Spurtle (or “spirtle”) is a traditional Scots kitchen tool from the 15th century. Over time the original implement changed shape and began being specifically used for stirring oatmeal and soups. The rod-like shape is designed for constant stirring which prevents the porridge from congealing or becoming lumpy. The Spurtle is a wooden dowl with a contoured end to give the user a better grip, and is suitable for any stirring or mixing tasks in the kitchen.
Made from Australian Hardwood timber like Red Gum, these Oatmeal Spurtles are hand-made in South-East Queensland, Australia by “Bryan’s Woody Bits – Bespoke Timber Products” and are the perfect addition to your kitchen or great as a gift with some of our GF Oats products.
