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:

    Not too bad so far… already seems to be flying by though. I have a batch of citrus that has been sitting for nearly two weeks now that I need to make into something.

    2014 has been a good one so far. We’ve had plenty of snowy, chilly days that are perfect for staying indoors and simmering things on the stove.

    2014 itself is fine. The weather in 2014, however, hates me. (It’s mutual.)

    I need these spatulas! The classic wooden handles are a serious drawback.
    2014 could and will be better, thanks to a muy stressful work project that will be done Monday. Can’t wait to do ANYTHING else!

    Before the clock ticked over to 2014, I felt in my bones that this would be the year of change—and so far, it is. Hoping for positive change in all things.

    I’m very excited to be moving from my studio downtown to my new quilt studio in our garage. We’re moving everything this week. Free rent and more time at home to cook and can is hard to beat!

    So far, 2014 is full of change. We’ve spent a decent amount less than we normally do, I’ve gone vegan, we make more homemade, and we’ve been decluttering our house. We like the changes and don’t find them as hard as they seemed. Pretty excited!

    Thanks for the constant inspiration. I made 6 quarts of chicken soup this weekend and canned them in my spankin new pressure canner. Also in 2014 I have made 18 quarts of lovely chicken stock. Im off to a wolloping great start. I too grew up with rubber spatulas – and could never understood my friends’ moms who didnt have them . . . . .weird that I would notice something like that as a 7 year old . . . . .but it is the truth. I guess I was a kitchen geek very young . . . .

    2014 has been pretty good so far. An overabundance of persimmons came my way that made it into some quick breads and the freezer. We are planting 4 new fruit trees in our front yard.

    So far 2014 and I are getting along really well. 😀 Here’s to more of that!
    Can I just say that I had no idea great spatulas like that even existed? Now that I’ve seen them, they’re going on my “must have” list. I love the idea of how easy they’ll be to keep clean.
