Handcrafted Wood Wok Spatula

Write a review

We found the perfect wok spatula for use with our lightweight cast iron woks, one that is long enough, wide enough and made in the best shape to quickly shovel, toss and flip food in a hot wok. Plus, it's beautiful and quiet!

Let us explain: Earlywood, a Montana maker of hand-carved wooden utensils, teamed up with J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, author of The Wok cookbook, to design the ideal wok spatula for a 14-inch wok.

They made several design choices that make this spatula unique and superior:

  • It is 16 inches long, allowing your hands and arms to remain sufficiently far from the flame and splattering oil
  • It has a 4-inch wide head, which is much larger than other wok spatulas, so it can shovel large amounts of food and keep the ingredients moving in the wok
  • The head has a sharp angle that fits perfectly around the sides of a 14-inch wok, accessing all the food for easy movement through the heat zones
  • It's made of beautiful and durable maple, a hard wood
  • Unlike metal spatulas, which can be quite loud when scraping a wok—especially against cast iron, but also carbon steel—this wood spatula offers a significantly quieter and more pleasant experience

Note that Earlywood makes separate versions for right- and left-handed cooks, so everyone gets the benefit of the angled design. 

Care: Earlywood advises that you wash the wok spatula in hot soapy water using the rough side of the sponge. Never put it in the dishwasher or soak in water. If the wood starts to look dry, simply rub it down with oil. They recommend wood oil, mineral oil or walnut oil.
