Similar to the highly-functional stainless spoon at the top of the page, this is an incredibly useful multi-purpose utensil for Thai food that belongs in every American kitchen. The finest quality stainless steel is thick and durable, it feels as much like a timeless automotive tool as a kitchen utensil. The modern bakelite handle is equally tough and perfect. Featured extensively in our Thai Street Vendor Video Series (notable videos: som tum, and larb).

We have the best size for you at 11" long, and the spoon is 3" wide. Technically called a rice ladle, this is what you find throughout Thai restaurants to serve jasmine rice from a large bowl to a smaller dish (picture at left shows prized, rare wild sinin rice that we brought back in our suitcase and unfortunately can not offer at this time). Used by chefs for everything, including scraping a mortar while pounding with pestle in the other hand. This large spoon will be one of the most commonly used things in your kitchen, and we are pleased to offer it for a great price. See our collection of Zebra Thai stainless cookware.

wok turner Original Stainless Steel Wok Turner, 16" Long, Best Quality

We ran out of this wok turner last year and had been selling the shorter 14" version (below) in the meantime. Now our original long-handle wok turner is back in stock. Many have noticed that the real Thai chef such as shown in our street vendor videos, constantly uses a nice long wok turner with a shovel that comes out at a nice 45 degree angle (rather than the typical wok turner below which has amost no angle). Notable video: Seafood Vegetable Stiry Fry.

This indispensible tool is used for measuring, scooping, scraping, turning, serving and more. We've recently found "the best" wok turner--the Rolls Royce of wok turners. Made by Zebra of high-quality thick pure stainless steel, this really feels solid in your hand. It's such a high quality that you'll have it for generations. The entire length is 16", so your hand stays a safe distance from the wok. The bakelite handle is 5.5", the shovel is 4" wide and has a 3 tablespoon capacity. Instead of a simple spot-weld, the shovel is solidly welded onto the handle guaranteeing that it will never fall apart of feel flimsy. It may seem a bit expensive for a kitchen tool, but given the workmanship and materials we are sure you will not be disappointed. Product of Thailand. See our collection of Zebra Thai stainless cookware.

Stainless Steel Skimmer, Large, Unique Design

Our stainless steel, bakelite handle skimmer is a modern design based on the popular Chinese wire skimmer. It also functions well as a slotted spoon, for western-style cooking. We've never seen anything like it in America, yet it's sure to be one of your most popular utensils. Use for lifting large quantities of vegetables out of a pot of simmering liquid or removing pasta from boiling water, among other uses. We used it when making Bua Loi dessert. Made by Zebra of high-quality thick pure stainless steel, the same quality as our wok turner described above. The handle total length is 12", which keeps your hands away from the heat. The bakelite handle section is 5.5". The round skimmer is bowl-shaped, a nice wide 4.5" (larger than it looks in the photos). It may seem a bit expensive for a kitchen tool, but given the workmanship and materials we are sure you will not be disappointed. Product of Thailand. See our collection of Zebra Thai stainless cookware.
