Our professional-quality utensils are crafted of heavy-gauge stainless steel and ergonomically shaped for excellent balance and control—for a difference you can really feel in the hand. The perfect partner, our ladle has a pleasing, hefty weight, and the capacity is marked inside the bowl for convenient measuring. With a gleaming polished finish, it's an attractive addition to your table for serving.
