Spurtles (also known as porridge sticks) date back to the fifteenth century. The rod like shape has a small surface area, and means that porridge can be stirred without congealing, forming lumps or sticking to it. A spoon on the other hand has a dragging effect during stirring and often the porridge sticks to the spoon and gets lumpy. 


The custom is that a spurtle should be used to stir in a clockwise direction with the right hand.


This spurtle is made from beechwood which has been sourced through naturally sustainable sources governed by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).
