The spurtle (or "spurtel", "spurtil", "spirtle", or "spartle") is a wooden Scottish kitchen tool, dating from the 15th century, that is used to stir porridge, soups, stews and broths

The rod-like shape means that porridge can be stirred without congealing and forming lumps, unlike a spoon, which would have a dragging effect during stirring. The low surface area reduces the chances of porridge sticking to the instrument.

These Spurtles are hand-made in Saskatchewan from local woods, including pine, cherry, caragana, fir and red cedar. 

The custom is that a spurtle should be used to stir in a clockwise direction with the right hand

Sorry, no choice of colour online.
