The Pig Tail Food Flipper is made of stainless steel with a curled end that has a nice sharp point. It replaces spatulas, tongs, and forks. It turns, flips, moves, and carries food in a flash. It can even lift and flip large items like chickens or a rack of ribs - up to 8 lbs. It won't scrape up grease like a spatula and will not bleed or mark meats. The shaft is 17.5"L. The handle has been turned of Olivewood which has amazing figuring with the tan streaks & swirls on the creamy colored wood! It comes from the Middle east & Mexico. It has a durable food safe finish on the handle. It can be hand washed with soap and water only. If the handle appears dry apply mineral oil. The over all measurements are approx. 1.5"dia. x 21"L.
