Giveaway: Set of Three GIR Silicone Spatulas

GIR spatulas

When I was growing up, one of the staple tools in our kitchen was the trusty rubber-headed spatula. Known to us as a rubber scraper, it was my mother’s go-to utensil for cleaning bowls of cookie dough, saving every drop of leftover spaghetti sauce, and generally ensuring that not a drop of food was wasted.

However, those scrapers we used to use had some serious drawbacks. The rubber heads never lasted particularly long, they weren’t particularly sturdy in high temperature situations, and they had to be removed from the wooden handles all the time to prevent any grossness from collecting under there.

Happily, the flexible spatula has come a very long way in recent years. They nearly all have heatproof heads and my favorite ones are the fully encased silicone models where the heads don’t separate from the handle. I find that they last a whole lot longer than the previous generations, and I love that they can go in the dishwasher.

One company that’s making particularly awesome spatulas these days is GIR. They are made from food-safe silicone with a polymer core. They are heat proof up to 464 degrees F and are really great for stirring simmering batches of jams and jellies.

Thanks to the nice folks at GIR, I have a set of three spatulas (the mini, the skinny, and the ultimate) to give away today. Here’s how to enter:

    2014 has been rough so far. However, I did open the peaches I canned to find that they were a complete delight. It’s like having a bit of last summer in the middle of winter.

    2014 kicked off with meeting my new husband’s extended family for the first time at their annual reunion. They are a fun and loving bunch so I’d say it’s a great start to a new year.

    2014, eh? Well, it’s been absolutely freezing, cold enough to have indoor recess every day last week (-30C) and now I have to spend the entire weekend writing report cards, as I’ve been too busy watching Australian Open tennis. Must get to bed to be up at 3:30am for the final. Love the spatulas–I’ve never seen those before.

    This year so dar has been busy! Preparing to move in the next few weeks. Wondering how I will get all of my family’s belongings safely packed and transported. Not to mention all of the jars of stuff I put up last summer!

    It is not going as planned but I don’t think that life always works on the plan one has outlined for themselves. I just keep on moving on and am waiting for winter to be over.
