Gray Kunz Spoon - Special Edition - Damascus Pattern
Many culinary tasks, such as mixing, require something larger than the standard sauce spoon. However, a typical kitchen spoon is too large for finesse jobs like saucing. Enter Chef Gray Kunz, nominated “Best American Chef” by the James Beard Foundation, and awarded four stars from the New York Times. Twenty-three years ago, during his reign as head chef at the legendary Lespinasse restaurant in New York City, he designed the now-iconic version that bears his name. Fast forward to the present day; the Gray Kunz spoon has absolutely become de rigueur in the kitchens of high-end restaurants all over the world.
A professional chef knows that a good spoon is essential and uses a spoon for everything from basting to flipping meat to delicate operations like forming quenelles. Being able to do so much with one tool saves an enormous amount of time and effort in the kitchen; consequently, having a good spoon at one’s disposal is crucial.
This special limited edition Kunz spoon is made from heavy-duty 18/10 stainless steel with a permanently electroplated Black PVD finish (it is dishwasher safe). It is 9” long and holds 2.5 tablespoons (about 40 ml)—the ideal amount for saucing the main course. Its delicate silhouette gives it an air of elegance, and yet it’s extremely durable. The bowl of the spoon is large enough that it can be used to flip steaks and seafood in the pan, with a gently tapered edge that allows greater precision in pouring.
In addition, the spoon’s shorter, narrower handle balances its weight, so that it rests comfortably between the thumb and index finger.
This Special Limited Edition of the Gray Kunz spoon combined with its specially-designed presentation box will be available only as long as supplies last.
