Hi, my name is Mike Fork and for my day job, I’m a financial analyst working out of Chicago. In my spare time, though, I love cooking.
Critical to my love of cooking: spatulas.
It may seem strange that someone has set up a whole site devoted purely to spatulas, until you consider how absolutely necessary they are to a satisfying and efficient cooking experience. To cook without a spatula is to use a phone without service, to bike without wheels, or to eat without taste buds.
And, of course, as a child of the 80s, I was instilled with a love of spatulas at a very young age by the one and only “Weird Al” Yankovic in the film UHF. But whereas he only conceived of a superstore called Spatula City, specializing in only one variety of spatula, I dream of a Spatula Planet, where all things spatula-related can be found under one banner, united.
I ask you to join me in my appreciation for this essential cooking instrument, and share in what I have to offer. I hope that you’re able to find something of interest here, whether it’s a great price on a really kickass spatula, information on the different types used around the world in all sorts of cooking, the best spatula related fan fiction and art to grace the web, or something else entirely.
Yours in culinary enjoyment,
