The Paddle Stirrer is exactly as it's name suggests ... a paddle ... for moving food such as stir fry around a big flat pan ... or turning risotto in a dish.

The Paddle Stirrer is handmade from selected salvaged and recycled Australian hardwood timbers which are sourced by the maker. The Paddle is 28 cm (11 inches) long and 9 cm (3 1/2 inches) wide with a handle thickness of about 1.8 cm (3/4 inch). The working blade is about 15 cm (6 inches) long.

The utensil has a gentle curve along the blade and a slight dish in its shape and is canted to either left or right as appropriate. The working tip is very slightly dished but when the Paddle is at it's working angle, the tip edge presents most of it's width as a flat surface to the pan.

The Paddle is great for all stir fry and mixing or stirring tasks in shallow pans or skillets. Use it for braising or frying meats, turning risotto, frying and caramelising onions or simmering sauces. This is the shortest cooking utensil in the Gilmour Design range, but has the widest blade. It is very stout and extremely strong and, due to it's wide shape, also makes a very good serving utensil. The Paddle is also well suited for use in shallow woks.

One of the unique strengths of the Paddle Stirrer is that whilst it can be held by the handle like a normal stirrer, it can also be grasped down close to the blade and swished around just like a ... paddle ... or table tennis bat. This gives the utensil excellent control in situations like fast-frying or searing meat strips in a very hot pan or on a griddle plate.

The Paddle was first designed and made in about 2004.

This product listing is for an item which will be selected from available stock ... or made to order. The item shipped will be like the pictures in shape and style but will vary in colour and wood type. The wood used is from select stock which is dried and seasoned and is ultimately suitable for utensil making. Rest-assured, you will receive the best selected stock item of the day.

Care for this utensil is very simple. Don't be scared to use it and wash it in the sink using normal practices ... hot water and dishwashing detergent are fine. Preferably keep it out of the dishwasher, although experience has proven that it won't kill it if the utensil ends up in there occasionally ... though the intense detergent will prematurely harm the surface and finish. Oiling is not really necessary ... but you can oil it if you want.

This utensil is sanded to a very smooth finish and is fully sealed with a penetrating food-neutral resin product. You do not need to oil this item as the sealing process creates an effective moisture barrier which will greatly slow down the oxidation process during the early years of its life. The utensil will last you a very long time and will age beautifully.
