Square ladle

In her Martha Stewart's Cooking School series on PBS, Martha uses and praises a 4oz square stainless steel ladle. It looks like it is more efficient than standard ladles for both skimming and getting the dregs out of a pot.
I put it on my wish list and suggest that anyone who is preparing to outfit a kitchen choose a square ladle.

  1. Hi, greygarious:

    I'd like to see this thing. Got a link?

    My only ladle that might be comparable is a plastic one that I can only describe as being football-shaped. Nothing special in the skimming department, but it does get into corners surprisingly well.

    Aloha,

        The bowl design looks the same. I assume MS was using one from her own utensil line.

          Hi, iyc_nyc:

          That's hilarious. I looked at your link this morning, and now Amazon is pushing this very ladle at me in the CH right-hand ad column.

          We should be careful what we ask about, I guess...

            You're being watched all the time now.

              Hi, BGD:

              Yes! All the time, but not very well, apparently. I would have preferred if they'd pushed me toward this one:

              Click on the link then report back if Amazon/CBS tell you later they want you to buy one.

                Ha! I actually have this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001...

                But the one you picked is nicer.

                And sorry about the Amazon stalk! Wonder who's getting $ from that -- does CH get a cut?

                  Hi, iyc_nyc:

                  Oh, no apology needed. It was just so strange to have linked to that ladle (and one that is completely new to me), and then Whoa! There is the Kuchenprofi ladle visiting me, completely unbidden.

                  I'm afraid we may be seeing more of this kind of thing. I'm slowly training myself not to even look at the right-most 1/3 of the page.

                  The Natural Med ladle you have is beautiful--and is reasonably priced.

                  Aloha,

                  1. re: kaleokahu

                    I looked at a book of short stories on Amazon, only to find it featured in an Amazon ad on the Chowhound page I was reading the next day. That's more stalky, I think, than if it had been something food-related.

          2. re: iyc_nyc

            I just bought this ladle and I love it! (BTW, it looks almost identical to the one in Martha's line.)

            1. re: flourgirl

              I bought the Kuchenprofi on Amazon and used it for the first time yesterday. I like it a lot. I saw the MSCS episode again.
              Does she in fact sell one under her own line? Because on second look, what she is using appears to be the same thing I bought.

        2. We have a couple of ladles that are triangular shaped. They are made in Minnesota and work quite well.

          1. I was looking for the same item! Googled it & saw something on Joss & Main which looks very much like what Miss Martha uses
