The Petty and Fish Spatula are lauded as "masters of the all around." If you prefer an uncluttered knife and utensil drawer, or are looking for a couple tools to take on vacation, The Minimalist Set is all you need.
The Petty: Power and Grace in One.
Conventional wisdom says you need two knives in the kitchen: a paring knife and a chef knife. The Petty challenges that notion by handling both roles with "the perfect balance of power and grace (Bon Appetit)." Excelling at peeling, paring, boning, carving and other delicate work for vegetables, fruits, and herbs the Petty also takes on some of the slicing and dicing jobs of a larger chef knife.
More Than Fish: A Virtuoso of Versatility.
Don't let the name fool you, the fish spatula is the "utility knife" of spatulas. Of course, it's great for flipping fish, stirring and cutting-- but the thin profile also makes it fantastic for easily slipping under omelettes, pancakes, and latkes. The grippy handle provides heft if you need to flip heavier foods while the flexible metal is extra dexterous when dealing with delicacies. If you only have one spatula in your kit, this is your best bet- it even doubles as a slotted spoon in a pinch.
