WHAT IS A SPURTLE?
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. Also, the rod-like shape is designed for constant stirring which prevents the porridge from congealing or 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.
Because the Spurtle is made from wood, it won’t scratch your pots or cookware. Furthermore, recent studies have found that wood contains chemicals that fight bacterial growth.
It is easy to care for your spurtle, just wash in warm soapy water and leave it to dry thoroughly. If you feel it needs a touch of oil, use food grade Tung Oil to bring the timber back to life.
