The CIA Masters Collection Maple Stirring and Tasting Spoon is the perfect tool for cooking soups, hot sauces and gravies. Tasting soups and sauces during the cooking process is critical to achieving the right balance of flavors and seasonings, and this double bowled spoon from CIA lets you easily taste and stir with one tool. Since wood doesn't conduct heat, the handle remains cool to the touch. The professional-quality solid maple construction is durable, and the smooth finish is soft and gentle to the touch. Safe for all cookware, including nonstick. The Culinary Institute of America Masters Collection of cookware, cutlery, bakeware, and culinary tools was designed and tested by the school's faculty of Certified Master Chefs.
