on 27 April 2015
Originally I consider a wooden spatula, but once I saw this beautiful piece of design I just couldn't help myself. At £3.74 + P&P it seemed like a bargain. As someone who was yet to own a non-stick slotted turner, I was understandably extremely hyped in the run up to it's arrival. After first unwrapping I was definitely satisfied; its smooth ergonomic handle was a pleasure to hold, the angle of the flipper was ideal for eggs and the metal-plastic material combination made for an aesthetic I can only describe as beautiful.
I decided it was time to test my new toy, so I fired up the hob (the second hottest one, obviously). I began by testing a single slice of bacon. The gently angled tip made for an easy flip and the slotted head allowed all excess fat and oil of drizzle perfectly through. I was a happy man.
It was time for a real challenge, eggs - sunny side down. I knew this would be a true test, as it was one many of my other utensils had previously failed. I drizzled some oil into the pan and began to cook. As one side began to brown, I knew it was time. I slid the smooth edge under the edge, it moved with ease. It dipped under the white like a dolphin elegantly gliding under the top of a wave. I grinned a little. I continued to push, aware that with every centimetre I moved the chance of destroying the yolk was becoming greater. But despite the fears that gripped me, my reliable hand remained steady, and I flipped the egg a exact 180 degrees without trouble.
Unfortunately when I made pancakes it melted a bit, so I had to give it 4 stars.
