GIR's essential kitchen tools: the critically acclaimed Ultimate Spatula, Skinny Spatula, and Ultimate Flip. Unibody silicone construction, heat resistant to 464 degrees F, easy to clean, dishwasher and nonstick safe, and nearly indestructible. Lightweight but sturdy, non-slippery with a comfortable handle and grip, these tools were designed with both the occasional cook and seasoned chef in mind. Heavy-duty silicone rubber and strong but flexible blades make it easy to maneuver food, liquid, dry mixes, and wet batters, etc. GIR Spatulas are perfect for containers of all sizes and uses: mixing bowls, jars, kitchen appliances, stovetop pots and pans. The Ultimate Flip's strong blade is 30% larger than traditional flipping spatulas. Made of 100% ecologically friendly, non-toxic material, the GIR collection is designed to spend a lifetime in the kitchen. FDA and LFGB approved.
Able to withstand long-term temperatures up to 464°F and flash heat up to +550°F, GIR’s unibody silicone and patent-pending fiberglass core combine to create an entirely heat resistant tool that won’t get hot to the touch. You can even leave it in a pan or pot while cooking!
Often imitated but never equaled, GIR’s tools are individually designed for the tasks at hand. Each blade is crafted for optimal flexibility and extends seamlessly into a strong, sturdy handle. We’ve eliminated bacteria-trapping joints and holes that come along with two-piece designs, and the result is a set of tools that stand apart from the crowd. They’re 100% dishwasher safe and won’t damage nonstick cookware.
We only source high-quality, FDA and LFGB approved silicone that meets the most stringent standards of quality control. It’s what we’d want in our own kitchens, and it’s the only thing we’d put our names on. BPA, BPS, and phthalate free.
All GIR products come with a no-questions-asked lifetime guarantee — not that you’ll need it. Should your spatula fly too close to the sun, just let us know and we’ll help out in a jiffy.
Describe your product in 3 words.
Essential, Fresh, Simple
Where did you get the inspiration for your product?
The original idea behind GIR was to take a fresh, simple approach to product design in general. We wanted to start by perfecting a single product - the Ultimate Spatula - and then expand into other product categories that deserved a double-take: cycling gear, bar tools, apparel, you name it. It seems like we’ve hit on on something big in the kitchen - our fans respond to fun, smart innovations that disrupt the status quo in an otherwise saturated marketplace.
What differentiates your product from similar products out there?
We’re not interested in gadgets for gadgets' sake. GIR is about products that take something that's always been "good enough," turn it on its head, and make a statement with a new design that not only solves a problem (big or small, obvious or sneaky) but makes everyone happy at the same time. That's the universe we’re exploring.
Tell us about the best and most challenging parts of the creation process.
The original GIR Spatula was born in 2012. After thousands of hours in the kitchen using two-piece spatulas and similar utensils that just didn't cut it, we decided to create a category-killing tools that solved the problem for good. One Kickstarter campaign and hundreds of rave reviews later, we're keeping the faith by staying true to the Get It Right mission.
