There’s some wild weather on the East Coast this week!  As I am writing this, it is Monday afternoon and the winds are just starting to pick up here in Upstate, NY.  I spent the morning boiling some eggs and potatoes, putting batteries in flashlights and radios, doing up some laundry and working on this review!

Wherever you are, I hope that you are hunkered down and staying safe!  :-)

What a fun review I have for you today!

I have to admit, I don’t spend a lot of money on kitchen utensils.  I usually grab a ladle or a spatula at the market when I’m there shopping.  Typically, they last for a few months and then need to be replaced because they’ve either melted, broken or are just too hard to clean!

I am really impressed by the Spatula by GIR.  GIR stands for “Get It Right”.  I think they have really gotten this product right!

When I received my Spatula, the first thing I noticed was the great color!  It’s a really nice blue.  My picture actually makes it look a little darker than it actually is.

 

Then, when I picked it up, I just loved the feeling of it in my hand.  It’s a soft, single piece of molded silicone.  I also noticed that there are no parts to break or come flying off into your stir fry!

 

From the folks at GIR:

 the Spatula by GIR - Core Design Highlights and Key Benefits

“Created for both cooking and baking, the GIR Spatula is designed to mix, stir, fold and sauté foods at any temperature. Made from heavy-duty molded silicone, it is heat-resistant up to 464°F. Its sturdy, non-slip handle does not get hot to the touch, melt, or burn when used for high-heat cooking. Nearly indestructible, its unibody construction makes it easy to clean and super sanitary; there are no nooks or crevices for food to get caught in, and it is dishwasher-safe. Most importantly, the Spatula’s strong but flexible blade provides the optimum balance between flexibility and firmness, allowing users to move dry mixes and wet batters, scrape bowls, and manipulate solids and liquids in pans, bowls, pots and plates. Available in eleven bright and vibrant colors, it will launch in a few select local NYC stores as well as nationwide online this November 2012.”

Eleven bright and vibrant colors!!!  Yay!  Aren’t they pretty???  I am so ordering a Magenta one!!!

 

 

Can you believe they can even take temps up to 464°F ?  Pretty awesome!  These babies can even be tossed into the dishwasher!!!  I’m in!

As stated above, the Spatula by GIR will officially be launched in November and will be available in NYC stores and nationwide online.
