Typhoon Grip-IT Silicone Bowl Scraper by Typhoon
12 of 12 people found the following review helpful
I started experimenting with baking my own bread (sourdough and others) a few months ago, and this little tool has been a great help. It's made of silicone , and although it has some flexibility, it is made with an internal backbone to give it rigidity. I use it primarily to scoop out bread dough out of the pan in one piece after rising, and I find that its shape is perfect for scooping out all of the curves of the pan, and the rigidity helps with handling the stiffer doughs (like rye bread). I suppose I could also use the straight edge to divide dough into portions, but I have been using another tool for that. Overall it's easy maintenance, lovely colour.

The first few days were tricky, lots of splish-splashing until I learnt to position my mouth around it correctly (close it a bit), it was a bit noisy (although I never used an electric toothbrush,… Read more
Hush Puppies Ladies Belleville Boot Hush Puppies
I have two pairs of these, brown and black. Very comfortable, sturdy and correct in sizing. I love them, but their upper ridge is a bit high, which makes them look like wellies. This makes this perfect boot very casual. I wish they were just that tiny bit smarter.
