About this project
Like all of GIR’s products, our newest tools are here to redefine what it means to “get it right” in the kitchen. We used a blank-slate approach to come up with the very best design possible. These are the best ladles and spoonulas OF ALL TIME. They're unified by their versatility, but perhaps they're most easily summed up by their ability to scoop almost anything in the kitchen.
Moment of truth: this is probably the most thoughtfully designed product we’ve ever made.
Our very favorite thing about this ladle is the flexible front edge. It can bend into the corner of any bowl or container, allowing it to reach spots that no other ladle could.
Once you use it, you'll wonder why it hasn't always been done this way. It embodies the sort of simple magic we seek in every product we touch.
The bowl is perfectly spherical, and the handle hits it at an exact 45 degree angle. The interaction between those shapes makes it easy to direct the flow of liquid exactly where you want it.
We studied fluid dynamics to assess how to make the ideal pouring experience. The sharp pouring edge never dribbles or spills a drop.
The bowl holds 3/4 of a cup of liquid, and we've added large measurement marks in metric and imperial units.
Not to be outdone by the ladle, the spoonula brings its own set of tricks to the table. Here, too, we’ve taken a fresh look at spoonula design to achieve a simple and extremely versatile profile.
It combines a spatula with the gently curved bowl of a spoon.
The edge is sharp for scraping and precise scooping, the bowl is extra deep, and the blade has the perfect amount of flexibility.
Like the rest of GIR's Ultimate tool lineup, these are sized for everyday use. The handles provide a comfortable, ergonomic grip, and are friendly for arthritic hands too.
Available in our most popular seven colors, they'll match the rest of your GIR collection or blend neatly with a kitchen drawer full of heirloom tools and newfangled gadgets.
We love it when you talk nerdy to us. All of GIR’s tools are made with pharmaceutical grade platinum silicone.
It’s FDA and LFGB approved, naturally antimicrobial, dishwasher safe, and extremely durable.
It’s also heat-proof to 464°F long term, 550°F short term (and anyone out there claiming higher numbers for their silicone kitchen tools is straight up lying to you).
Everything we make comes with a lifetime guarantee - because that’s the right thing to do and we’re really good people.
GIR started right here on Kickstarter, with the Ultimate Spatula. It was the world’s very first all-silicone spatula, and it inspired our entire product line of high-quality, indestructible silicone tools. The GIR Ladle and Spoonula are following in its footsteps. They are the product of hundreds of backer requests - we heard you, and we think you’re going to absolutely love these ones.
Risks and challenges
With five successful Kickstarter campaigns under our belts, we're excited and confident to tackle a new project.
Here's what we've already overcome:
Design - these products are fully designed and ready to go
Tooling - we got a head-start on tooling to make sure we can deliver on time
Here's the really challenging stuff:
Holiday shipping delays - this would be a worst-case scenario. We've never been late on delivery, though, and we will do whatever it takes to deliver on time as promised. Worldwide shipping during the busy holiday season can be additionally troublesome, but we've delivered tens of thousands of packages around this time of year and we're ready to do it again
Over-funded campaign - if we're heavily over-funded, we'll make sure that communication with backers stays current and transparent so that no one feels lost in the crowd
The Kickstarter community means the world to us, and we are very proud of our track record of honest, on-time campaigns. Let's do this thing!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
