This spatula is made of cherry and is great for stir-fry, sautéing, and serving rice. Yes, it is meant to cook with and it won't melt in your food or scratch your nonstick pans. The curved, hooked end makes it perfect for the wok and nice for dishing the food out. It measures 11 in. long and 2-3/4 in. wide. It is finished with a food safe oil.
All of my pieces are made from salvaged woods, primarily from cabinet and furniture builders.
For care, hand wash, wipe dry, and oil occasionally with a food safe oil, such as mineral oil, coconut oil, or any oil available for wood utensils and cutting boards.
*The spatula you receive will not be the exact one pictured, but will be of the same species of wood and equally as beautiful.
