Growing up, my mother couldn't bake without me there to stick my fingers in the batter. In retrospect, that little habit of mine was gross; at the very least I should have used a spatula. That's the idea behind the Batterfinger Spatula: rather than sticking dirty fingers into bowls full of tasty treats, we can use the Batterfinger Spatula. It does pretty well with a couple of other tasks, too. It's great for frosting and it's ideal for scraping a bowl clean; its shape lets this spatula pick up a little bit more batter when cleaning a bowl. I guess the Batterfinger just proves that our hands really are the best tools for the job.
The Batterfinger Spatula is made from silicone with a wooden handle. The spatula section is actually longer than the average spatula, and a little thinner, making it particularly useful for frosting. Shaped like an extended finger, this spatula may look like a gag gift but it's perfectly usable in the kitchen. The Batterfinger is also a perfect stirring tool when a little one wants to help. It's easy to clean--although the spatula does not seem to be dishwasher-safe--and is priced at $7.
