IPAC Plastic ‘Dondolo’ - the Never-Falling Spreader/Spatula

Why It's Cool: A great spreader combined with the convenience of a base that let's it stand on it's bottom without getting your counter or table dirty

Don’t you just hate it when you use a knife and then have to figure out how to keep the dirty blade from making your countertops dirty as well? Do you grab an extra plate, a piece of paper towel or something else to put between the dirty blade and the clean countertop? You don’t have to, if you have the Never-Falling Spreader from IPAC.

IPAC is a 70+ years old family-owned & operated Tuscan brand, and the name behind many classic Italian stainless steel products, beginning with the first Italian strainer in the post-WW2 era. They share our guiding principle of offering professional design and quality tools for the home cook. IPAC has evolved their brands over the years to include the work of their “geniuses” - i Genietti: extending beyond basic stainless steel to other materials and patented designs. The Never-Falling Spreader/Spatula - il dondolo (“the rocking chair”) - is an excellent example.

Its unique patented design works very well! As its name suggests, il dondolo rocks on its base: blade upright, never falling! Executed in red plastic, the weighted end of its handle puts the center of gravity on the end of the handle: not along the entire length, like a typical knife or spatula. Like its cheese knife cousin, the broad rounded bottom - or end - of the handle allows il dondolo to find its own center, without the user having to carefully place a square end on the table. Its tapered slightly flexible blade features a small cutting edge on one side, for easily cutting and spreading soft cheese, butter, cream cheese, jelly, and even cutting tarts and quiches. When used correctly, il dondolo keeps the ‘dirty’ blade off your table or countertop. And it’s dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.

Unique patented design, and functionality without comparison, this is truly a Cool Tool!
