It is a truth universally acknowledged that a porridge-lover in pursuit of the perfect bowlful must be in want of a spurtle. In the quest for a lump-free, creamy breakfast this traditional utensil (first recorded in use in the 15th century) will always succeed where a wooden spoon has failed! The spurtle is specially tapered in design so as not to break up the oats and spoil the texture. It prevents lumps and its smaller surface area stops the porridge oats from sticking to it. Our traditionally-crafted beechwood spurtle comes with an information label explaining its unrivalled porridge powers.
