A Stirsby is used as a kitchen aid, most often times to stir- hence the name. Most use it the way they use a wooden spoon, but now prefer the more comfortable Stirsby. The stirsby's finish is butcher block oil, which is food-safe. Butcher-block will wear down with use until it develops its own patina. It may also be reapplied, if you prefer.
Each Stirsby is hand-crafted. No two are exactly alike. They are made from non-first-growth hardwoods and scrap wood from a fine furniture shop. Each Stirsby also comes with a label identifying the species of wood used- from the working end to the handle’s tip. On each label there is a fanciful “history”of the Stirsby with care instructions. This is one essential utensil every Minnesota kitchen should not be without.
