Definitively the best spatula I've owned, I love that it stands on it's own and can be used to smash burgers, press bacon, flip anything and scrape whatever gunk sticks to your pans. I do have one issue though, my girlfriend volunteered to do the dishes and put my spatula in the washing machine! I always hand wash it tenderly like a baby spatula child but this time it was ran through the abrasive unloving gauntlet that is the washing machine.
Is there a way to restore the handle back to it's beautiful non-splintering self? The way it is now I doubt it'll make it the rest of the year.
Axe wax will get it looking good again-or other products with similar ingredients.
