Kitchen gadgets, utensils, and appliances abound, but really clever and useful ones aren't so common. Tovolo certainly lands in each of those categories with their plethora of sturdy spatulas, smart sifters, and indispensable ice trays. This week, Sur La Table is offering a buy-two-get-one-free sale for one of our favorite lines of Tovolo products, their Flex-Core items. Add three of Tovolo's Flex-Core items to your basket, and the third item will be free on your total purchase.
Prices for these items range from $8 to $14, so this is a great time to stock up on great utensils for wedding gifts, graduation, or even stocking stuffers if you're good at planning way ahead. You can select from 18 different products, and many have more than one color option.
Start with our new favorite Tovolo product, the Veggie Turner ($8). It's exclusive to Sur La Table right now, so you won't be able to find it anywhere else. The wide face of the turner allows you to scoop up lots of veggies or potatoes at once, and a raised lip on one side of the turner keeps food from slipping off before you've had a chance to flip them. Perforated slots at the bottom let oil drip out. The spatula is designed as one piece of BPA-free silicone, and it's dishwasher safe, so you don't have to worry about water, food, or bacteria slipping into separate pieces.
The second Sur La Table exclusive is the clever new Meat Copper & Turner ($8). The silicone utensil is specifically designed to break up ground meat, thanks to the raised fin in the middle of the slotted spoon. Instead of using a spoon to break up meat pieces and a slotted spoon to scoop it out of the pan, this utensil serves both purposes. Like the Veggie Turner, the one-piece BPA-free silicone utensil is dishwasher safe and won't trap water or bacteria from food.
For the third item in your basket, we really like the brand's Tasting Spoon ($10). A deep well in the spatula head lets you scoop up to one tablespoon of sauces for a quick taste. The slender design also makes it great for digging down into bottles of spreads, jams, and nut butters. The one-piece utensil is made from BPA-free silicone and is dishwasher safe.
But if it's the jar-scraping aspect of the Tasting Spoon that excites you, well, the Silicone Jar Scraper ($10) is meant for you. Available in four colors, this narrow spatula is over 10 inches long. You can use it to scrape up every drop of mayo, or it would be great for reaching to the bottom of a blender bottle without getting your hand messy.
