I won't use any other spoon.
I love my kunz spoons. They are perfectly balanced and feel great in your hands when plateing. Highly reccommend
for basting in a pan, nothing better
I picked up one of these at JB Prince and it is great. They also have another cheaper spoon which is also just as good IMO. its a bit larger and half the price. The cheaper one also has one with perforations.
Prince is closed Saturdays, so I guess I won't head over there if I go to the Korin ECG in October...
The large and the large slotted are standard on me every day, those and a nogent peltex slotted spatula are my favourite kitchen tools.
I haven't bought any of the Kunz spoons or clones (although I've used them) but I've collected a dozen or so keepers over the years of difderent size and shapes for different purposes. A couple came from Granny, some found under the dish machine, a couple at a yard sale, etc. I like being able to match the spoon to the task.
But for general use by your line cooks, I think the Kunz style spoons are pretty versatile and user friendly.
I'm really into the Richcraft perforated spoons with the cut off tip, called a roux spoon I hear... genius design for getting right to the edge of something.
