I bought this along with Joseph Joseph carousel set (6 elevated utensils), since it was advertised as being a useful additional tool. Well, I never use the uni-tool. I have tried to enjoy it, and always get a kick out of things that have dual purposes..but only if they function well. Yes, this is a spoon, but not deep enough and hard to scoop. Yes it is a spatula, but not as wide and not as easy to hold as a real spatula. A knife..really? The whole tool is awkward to hold due to the curved design. If you don't own any other kitchen tools in the house, or want to take it camping, then it will suffice. But in my kitchen, especially having purchased it with the 6 piece set which includes a much better spatula and spoon, I always find myself going for the real tool.

This is a very cool tool. You can use it to cut up chicken while it's frying in a pan for stir fry, use it as a spoon, use it for a turner for hamburgers or whatever... the list goes on and on. Even though you can use it for turning and as a spatula I still wouldn't get rid of those things. The problem with using it as a turner is that you can only use it on short pieces of meat since it doesn't have that much area to support things like eggs or fish. it is very limited too as a spatula but if you need it for small stuff this would be great in a pinch.

Even though it does have it's limitations like most "all in one" tools it still is the first thing I grab when I'm cooking something. I also got the dirty red color so it stands out in my drawer amongst all of the black and silver utensils.

It's a great idea, but I find the sharp edges make it quite uncomfortable to hold. Plus, and this is hard to see from the photo, the spatula end is angled for lefties and I happen to be right-handed. This is one of those items where it's better to go to a bricks and mortar store, so you can actually hold one in your hands and judge for yourself.

The Uni-Tool looks cool and is pretty much indestructible, so maybe it's a bit harsh to only give it one star. But the fact is that I find it too awkward to use, which means it never leaves the kitchen drawer, so it turned out to be a waste of my money. YMMV.

This handy little device has become my go-to gadget in the kitchen. Turn, spoon, strain, cut, stir, this tool does it all. It's so useful I got a second one.

This is a fantastic spoon that is extremely resistant to heat, use and dishwasher, I use the spatula side most often to flip and scrap the pan, and to cut minor things (such as pizza slices, it even works for that), the side of the spatula fits perfectly on the sides of any pan due to the different angles on each side, so I can always mix everything well without needing other tools. The spoon side isn't quite as useful, it's just a spoon, and a very shallow one, the soft plastic around the spoon really isn't so soft and you wouldn't be able to, say, spread frosting as advertised. But it is stylish and useful, and is the perfect cook's companion along with the magnificent scoop colander.

Give it a cap and a costume, this is the only thing I need in the kitchen!

I am often looking for tools that can replace the other 30 I feel like I have collected in my kitchen. I have used this to flip grilled cheese, to stir red beans and rice, to strain brussel sprouts and taste sauce. I used the flat edge to cut onions that were too large once in the pot and scrape the bottom of the pan.

The uni-tool feels nice in my hand, has held up fine in multiple dishwashings and has allowed me to toss a few kitchen tools that have become obsolete.

Hooray for Joseph x2!!

I was in love with the concept, but now that I own it, I never use it. it's uncomfortable in my hand, awkward, and just not practical.

This is a great tool, often the first thing I grab. My only complaint is that I'm right-handed, and it's easier to use left-handed.

I was pleased with this item, I wish it had been a little bigger but has multi purposes and they do work, even has a edge that cuts things. I think someone here mentioned that they did not like it because the edge was to sharp, that is one of the 5 in 1 benefits, a knife.
