8 in. Angled Comfort Grip Spatula
From a review/product comparison in the latest (July/August 2007) issue of Cook's Illustrated: Mini Offset Spatula You need control when spreading batter or icing. We’ve found that tasks like spreading batter in a cake pan or frosting cupcakes are a lot easier with a mini offset spatula. These moderately priced, blunt-edged metal pastry blades, which average about 4-1/2 inches long, are especially helpful in spreading the sticky batter in our Rustic Plum Cake recipe. We tested five models and found significant differences. Thin blades wobbled and wooden handles absorbed odors. Our top choice, the Wilton Angled Comfort Grip 8-Inch Spatula, has a sturdy, round-tipped blade and an easy-to-grip polypropylene handle.
