Last week I posted about my two favourite spatulas. I only showed you one of them because I don’t have the new and improved model of the second. What is it though? It’s the “Does it all Spatula” from Zyliss. Zyliss is a good brand and although I don’t have the new model can can’t believe it would be inferior to the older version.
Above is the old style spatula, you can still find a few around, but they’ve been replaced with the new version now. This is the spatula that has been my all-time favourite for about ten years before the Zeal Spatula came along. The Zeal hasn’t completely replaced it; I go for the zeal for the Thermomix and baking mixes because the spoon shape works better between the blades.
I use the “Does it all from Zyliss” for everything else. Because I want to be completely honest, this older model was quite sturdy although after a lot of use (around two years in the cooking school) I found some of them would have a few scratches and cuts in the blade end, caused by the TM blades no doubt. I’m not too worried about that, as it’s a great improvement on the TM spatula which shows signs of scratching much earlier. I don’t think the makers at Zyliss or any spatula maker intended you to run your spatula against blades and press firmly. 😉
I use the two different shapes below although I only have one of the easy lift turners. You tend to have only one frypan on the go at once. You can’t have enough spatulas right! LOL, I can still hear my dad saying “If you have the right tools for the job, the job is a lot easier” That was him talking mum into letting him have a new power tool. He did use them a lot, so it was warranted. 😉
As soon as my 15 or so spatulas have died (some in the cooking school and some in my home). I’m gonna get me one of these new sexy ones. hahahaaa
