Expensive, but extremely durable saves money in the long run as you won’t have to buy another – ever.
ITEM: Uber Bar Tools Bar Spoon – ProStirrer (TM)
ITEM TYPE: Spoon, Mixing
COST: $21.00 (Plus Shipping)
Overview: Branded spoon made for Uber Bar Tools
Appearance: Stamped from 1.5 mm food grade stainless steel and mirror polished. About 11 1/2 inches long, 1 inch wide (ends), twisted shaft.
First Impression: Decently made, well fitted/joined parts, good even finish, quite sturdy, nice feel and heft to it. Quality tool.
Testing: Fits almost any height of glass or pitcher, weighted top/mudller almsot has a flywheel inertia and spin effect – makes it easy to stir and kepps the spoon centered while stirring. The mudller end worked well for mashing / muddling fruit but not as well with leaves and such. Checking or cross hatching would have been a nice touch for extra traction/abrasion. No plating to react in a drink, scratch, or wear off- pretty much a forever and low maintenance spoon.
Final Thoughts: Nicely made, heavy duty quality tool. Downside is it is a bit pricey compared to the mass produced junk out there – but you get what you pay for in either case- your choice. Like a lot of quality made items you can buy a lot of cheap ones that break or you lose through carelessness or you buy one good one that lasts forever and you keep track of – cheaper in the long run and more satisfying in the end.
