Spurtle - A Traditional Porridge Stirrer.... and much more.
Originating from at least the 15th century, a spurtle, (called a 'thivil' south of the border), was used for stirring oats and stews.
Simple, but very effective, a spurtle is a pleasure to use and will prove indispensable in the kitchen when you need to stir anything. Its small surface area will get right into the crevices of the pan and stir the ingredient without splashing. It is particularly effective for porridge, stews, sauces, and creamy scrambled eggs.
Each spurtle is hand-turned from beech, featuring a traditional Scottish thistle in the handle design, and treated with organic cold pressed raw linseed oil. They measure 30 cm long x 2 cm diameter.
Made in Cornwall, your spurtle will arrive tied with a Cornish Tartan bow, and individually packaged in a craft card and cellophane sleeve, ideal for giving as a present, although you may wish to order one for yourself too.
