Introducing Another Cooky Cat First! . . .

Spell it Sp-atu-oon©. Say it, "Spatchoon." But, what exactly is it?

You'll want to first know this:

Cooky Cat is, as most already know only too well, at the cutting edge of simplification and efficiency in the kitchen. We leave it to Martha (you know who) and her minions to search the corners of the globe to acquire a gizmo, a gadget, or an appliance for every single lousy, measly step in the kitchen. What they never tell you about is the real world, actual on the ground situation when you have so much single use equipment in your kitchen. They never tell you about the smell you put in the house by using one of those stove top smokers. Or, the mess you make on the stove top when you pan sear like they do on the television cooking shows. In the case of a gizmo-for-every-step, mainly there's the persnickety clean up chore. "Honey, would you like to do the dishes tonight?" You know the answer to that one already. So now you have the answer to that age old household conundrum. Save your marriage; get the Sp-atu-oon©

Anyhow, "K-I-S-S" . . . "Keep It Simple, Stupid." That is what this Cat does. In Cooky Cat's own words, "Why use a spoon or a shovel [in the litter box], when a paw will do?" Just to give you a little background on Cooky Cat's philosophical underpinnings.

The Sp-atu-oon© is a combination kitchen spoon/spatula; both in one! Can you believe it? You say, "Just what I needed. Why didn't I think of that?"

It's for that dish that you just want to get every bit of from out of the pot or pan. The Sp-atu-oon© is your ticket, hun [Gender neutral usage, on that. Don't send complaint emails]. And, it saves you the search for that spatula when you have a pot in your hand, and it's bloody hot and you're in a hurry, and . . . "Where is that damned spatula?" You've been there, you know. Admit it.

Each  Sp-atu-oon© comes with a set of four colorful silicon spatula inserts that attach and remove from the spoon in a jiffy via a patented (pending) "affictive sliding thingy" on the convex spoon surface. Dishwasher safe. Wave it threateningly at the kids, and it'll impress those little buggers to do right.

The fit and finish are superb. The joint line between the stainless metal spoon and the spatula is NASA spec. Same as what they sent to Mars, in fact. But, we are not allowed to promote that factoid; so just to say, it's damn good.

Get yours now. Available at better stores everywhere. Or, send a check for $19.95 made out to Cooky At Sales Haven, but write it C.A.S.H., please.

Cooky Cat's people are currently in negotiations with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc.'s people to offer the Sp-atu-oon© as a free giveaway at movie theaters that will be featuring Ms. Stewart's new movie project. It's a screwball comedy with the working title, Martha! . . . You Call This Living?

Anyhow, it's $19.95 made out to C.A.S.H., S'il vous plait. While supplies last.

(And, just between us chickens . . . there's a version coming for the table as well. For the clean plate club. Soup and dessert sizes, of course. For savoring every bit, drop or morsel of those wonderful dishes you crank out. Stay tuned. It's on the way.)
