The slotted spatula certainly looks nice. Stylistically, it's an impressive looking item, and the girth of the handle is ergonomically appealing. So far, the spatula has tolerated significant heat on a griddle over gas flame with no sign of melting or other damage. It's got a thin enough front blade to allow for easy turning of just about anything, and yet the spatula is tough enough to assist with the removal of - say - an over baked cookie on a sheet that wasn't properly greased...(how would I ever know that since I never burn the cooki...ok, so I burned them once).
But, there's a clunky factor to contend with here. The handle is bowed in such a way that if you have drawers that aren't too deep, you may have some trouble stowing this item. Also, there's not much room in the crowded spatula crock for this item unless you remove a few things. That's my only complaint.
But I can't knock a star off for something that is open and obvious and which doesn't affect the function of this item, at all.
