Colbrook Kitchen’s corporate name is Kochlöeffel LLC. In German, that means “cooking spoon”, but in Yiddish, it means so much more. A “kochlöeffel” is someone who knows you’re looking for an apartment, sees a promising for rent sign, and texts you on the spot! In other words, someone who gets actively involved in your life ...usually in a good way. So with a name like that, we take cooking spoons very seriously!
What makes a humble cooking spoon special? What makes it a Cool Tool? Well, a spoon’s simple primary function is transport food from one place to another--from skillet to serving platter, from roasting pan to plate. To do this well, it needs a few key attributes…
Here are a cooking spoon must haves:
Capacity: you want it to hold enough so you don’t have to make too many repetitive trips, but not so much that it becomes unwieldy (~1 oz/3 cL capacity).
Material: with all the non-stick pans and skillets being used, you want something that won’t scratch the surface of your pans, so silicone is our material of choice: it won’t scratch and it has wonderful high-heat resistance.
Edge:you want an edge that’s slightly beveled so that it can act almost as a scraper and get every last bit of food out of your pot or pan. And the flexible strength of the silicone really helps here.
Handle: it needs to be big enough to be comfortable to hold, but not so big that it’s awkward. And if it’s elevated from the counter or spoon rest to make it easier to pick up, then so much the better.
Stability: when you put the spoon on the counter or in a spoon rest, you don’t want it to roll over, dumping the last bits on the counter.
Aesthetics: a pleasing shape and color just makes you happier using it in the kitchen.
Easy clean up!
