    Yes! A wonderful metal spatula. I can't abide all this plastic crap
    common nowadays. I'm using Ecko metal cooking utensils with a sort of
    black "bakelite" type handle that fits so well in my hand, are nicely
    balanced and sadly unavailable these days. My slotted spoon recently
    disappeared and I'm mourning its loss.

    Thanks for the link, Sheldon. They've got some really neat stuff in their
    catalogs that I haven't seen available before. I've saved the link for
    winter wandering.

    I just checked out the rest of the kitchen tools, and I can see that
    there are several things I could use.

    I have a love-hate relationship with Lee Valley/ It's like Ikea. You
    can't go into that store to get something without picking up a lot of
    other stuff because they have so many good things and you won't find
    them anywhere else. A couple years ago I was refinishing a dresser and
    needed new drawer pulls. It was the natural place to go because they
    have a wide variety of drawer knobs and pulls. I found some that were
    basically the same as the ones I needed to replace. I needed 8 but they
    only had 4 in stock. They assured me that they could get me the other 2
    and mail them to me within a week. I paid for 8, took the 6 they had,
    and the other 2 were in my mail box two days later.

    I believe that's the kind that my SIL's mom likes -- a short handle.

    I need to replace a spatula virtually just like that one! Mine is cracked
    horizontally, and about ready to split totally (most likely from use to
    scrape off cooked-on foods from pans - I know: a Non-approved tool
    application!).
    The price is right, too!

    My favorite spatula is also an Ecko, with the same black handle that you
    mentioned. If it breaks, I will be in trouble, because it can not be
    replaced. I clicked on the link, and this one comes closest to
    resembling the one I have, at least in size. Every time I see kitchen
    gadgets I look for a replacement, but they are all too big. For my own
    personal use, a smaller spatula works better. When people are
    visiting, I may be frying 6 eggs at a time, I do not want a spatula big
    enough to flip a mastadon steak, I need something smaller. I am hoping
    my spatula outlives me. :-)


    Are we all freaks about our kitchen tools or is it just me?

    They were an excellently made utensil, weren't they? Nice weight,

    I wouldn't say freaks, but I think most people who cook have
    favorite tools in many categories.

    Just ask people to recommend their favorite potato peeler
    or can opener if you want to start WWIII.

    My favorite spatula is http://tinyurl.com/yd7lqlr
    This one is from Sur la Table and I love it.

    I also love what used to be called a Japanese cookie
    spatula that is useful for many jobs. It's one piece with
    about a 4" square blade and slightly offset tapered handle.

    My favorite Ecko masher handle is cracked but hard as I've looked I
    can't replace it. So since I don't use it too often I will live with
    it until one day I will probably make a new handle from wood. This is
    more of a ricer but I've had it for some 50 years and nothing else can
    take its place. I use it mostly for mashing beans. They just don't
    make tools like they used to. I was very pleased to find that spatula
    at Lee Valley, evrything today is that thick nylon or rigid stainless
    and all are too big to work in a smallish pan... mostly there are
    burger flippers, not spatulas. I phoned to add it to my kiddy gift
    order, somehow I missed it. I phoned just in time before my order was
    shipped. I've never bought anything from Lee Valley that wasn't
    finest quality.

    I have my stainless steel assorted utensils that came with my WearEver
    in the 50s - the spatula is great - it has slots in it, which I think
    helps cookies, lasagne squares, etc., slide off better. I also have
    the long narrow-bladed one which is useful in other ways.

    This one looks great, too.

    Thanks for the post. That red handled masher just below the green one
    is my favorite style of masher. I thought all the models I've seen
    like that one were over priced, now I know they are not.

    I have my mother's of that design, certainly pre-WWII and
    possibly pre-1930, which calls itself a "batter beater" -- and a quite
    similarly designed recent purchase from Cuisipro in the form of a coated
    whisk. Both are the best tools I know for making gravy.
