To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a very nice ladle. Silicone and steel are a big visual improvement over the typical nylon ladles, while still being safe for my tin-lined copper pots. Silicone doesn't break down like nylon does. I can get wooden spoons and spatulas, but not ladles due to the shape so this is my best option for a ladle that won't scratch. It looks a bit awkward, as if the handle is missing, but it works fine and doesn't slip or move around when left at the side of the pot. Winner!
I was looking for a sturdy ladle I could use in my enameled cast iron pots without worrying about scratching them. This fit the bill perfectly. Sturdy enough to really get a good scoop of soup, doesn't sag when full. I like it so much I have plans to buy a second
I returned because it doesn't have a flexible lip like this other Tovolo red bowl one that I ended up getting somewhere else. This black one is a stiff silicone and the red one has more of a flat front and very flexible to where you can scrape the sides.
