Needed to replace my favorite cooking spoon, a Henckels nylon 12" that finally snapped @ the handle joint after a couple years of near-daily use. Most cooking spoons are way too long or flimsy, but this one is just the right size & balance for stirring a risotto or just about anything else.
And the "elevate" feature is wonderful -- it really lifts it well above the counter. Others have written that it won't rest in a pan because of the weighted handle, but I found that if I flip it upside-down (so that the spoon points downward), I can rest the handle on the counter while the spoon end stays securely on the edge of the pan. Although...with the elevating feature, it's really not necessary to rest it in a pan.
The drawback of this spoon is also a useful attribute. Its spoon bowl is very shallow, so not too easy to dish up foods. But, this flattened aspect makes it a great tool for certain other jobs, like turning sliced potatoes in a pan.
It has a wonderful feel and balance, and is very solidly made. I expect many years of use from this great tool.
If you're curious, my favorite of the 3 spoons I ordered was the Copco Smart Gadget Nylon Cooking Spoon. I just might order another, just in case that one ever breaks. It's just that good!
