What I like:
-The blade is thin enough to where I can easily slide it under eggs cooking on a cast iron skillet rather than just pushing them around, which is what happened with other turners/spatulas. The end is not sharp but it has enough of an edge to cut a piece of chicken apart when checking to see if it's cooked all the way through.
-Blade flex is perfect as it provides a slight bit of flex when you really push it into the pan (i.e. when I burn something onto the pan) but otherwise it's perfectly rigid.
-As far as size the 4"x2.5" is extremely versatile and I haven't had a need for anything smaller or larger. For reference the smallest pan I use is a Lodge Logic L5SK3 Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron 8-Inch Skillet that has tall sides and this size turner is easily operated in it.
-I wasn't crazy about the look of the handle at first, but it's grown on me and I really like the feel of the wood and the balance it provides
-Made in the USA: I know this doesn't matter to everyone but if I can find a quality product made here for a reasonable price I'm going to buy it. For me the fact that this is made in the US is just icing on the cake for an already great product.
What I don't like:
-Nothing: I can find something to complain or modify on most things and I am stumped here. (It's, a major reason why I bought a second one.)
-I'm intrigued by the one reviewer that said he sharpened the edge.Read more ›
The steel only goes half-way up into the handle, and the gap cut out for it is a little bigger than the width of the steel, so water/food will be able to get stuck in the gap. Also, the edge of the metal is sharp and rough all the way around and the wood is rough at the end of the handle (just not sanded down with a small enough grit paper to make it smooth), giving the feel of a cheap kitchen tool. But it is not priced that way. I can fix the finish problems with some steel wool, but the gap between the blade and the wood is not fixable and will cause the wood to go bad earlier than it should due to water getting trapped in the gap. (A commenter suggested epoxy to fix this but I don't want to mess up the handle so am not going to attempt that).
Update after a few weeks of use: I did take some steel wool to this and made it really nice with just 5 minutes of effort. I worked down the sharp metal side edges and gently buffed down the rough wood at the end of the handle, now it feels really good. So now the only problem is the gap due to the cut in the wood being a bit too big for the steel, leaving a small gap between the handle and the metal where the metal fits in the handle. That will eventually do the handle in as water sits in there after each washing.
Too bad the manufacturer didn't spend a few minutes finishing this, but the material now feels really good so I've raised this from 1 to 3 stars.
Update after 2 years of use: I have grown to love this spatula, and even bought a second as a gift for a friend who is getting into cooking on cast iron.Read more ›
UPDATE 6/28/12: I went back to non-stick. Cast iron is just too darn heavy. But, my review stands on this turner.
