'Give It a Rest' Spatula

We've all done it: gotten gravy on a spotless dress right before the party. Smeared food across a freshly scrubbed countertop. Put a spoon in the sink even though we'll need it again... all because we don't have a spoon rest. That's why we invented the 'Give It A Rest' Spatula.

While we hate to make light of our innovation and foresight, it honestly wasn't hard to come up with an answer to this age-old problem: combine spoon rest with a utensil, and presto! Fewer messes, more fun. This amazing stirring, scraping and sautéing tool with built-in spoon rest offers a handy all-in-one cooking tool and ensures you never have to clutch a food-covered spoon to a food-free dress again.

The ‘Give It a Rest’ spatula is lovingly crafted from a single piece of Certified Organic bamboo, with a small, patented bump on the back – a natural characteristic of how bamboo grows. The bump keeps the business end of your spatula from touching counters and stovetops, while the satiny, hand-shaped spoon neither imparts nor absorbs flavors. All 12 inches of it are scratchless and gentle, so you don’t have to worry about marring cooking surfaces. It washes up easy in warm, soapy water.

The ‘Give It a Rest’ spatula is the ultimate answer to the question of where to put it, so you never have to ask again. Check out our other bamboo kitchen favorites. Our line of ‘Give It A Rest’ utensils features the three most used and loved kitchen tools.

This design is a result of designing with bamboo for the many years we have. The 'node' is a specific attribute to bamboo, and we wanted to find a way to build inherent functionality using the node of the bamboo stalk.

Our Give It A Rest series was born.

There is a whole other story to tell regarding the naming of the collection. This patented design elevates the spoon head off the counter, leaving your surfaces splotch-free. No need for unnecessary spoon rests and the like, these spoons cleverly do it... inspired by nature.
