Spurtle, porridge stirrer

For the porridge lovers, a timber spurtle or traditional Scottish kitchen tool for stirring oatmeal or porridge. The traditional utensil for making smooth, creamy porridge. The narrow, tapered shaft allows a whisking action without spilling out of the saucepan, while the beaded foot is designed to prevent sticking in the bottom of the pan. Made at Creamore Mill, Shropshire, England.
