What Is A Slotted Spoon?

best slotted spoon

A slotted spoon is a kitchen utensil with a long, thin handle and a shallow, round bowl. The spoon bowl has several small holes, which allow liquid to drain out while the solids stay in the spoon. 

Slotted spoons are used to transfer food from one container to another or to stir and mix. You can also use a slotted spoon as a ladle when serving liquid-based foods. As such, a slotted spoon is a must-have for home cooks and food lovers.

Types Of Best Slotted Spoon

Wooden Slotted Spoons

best slotted spoon

The spoon is made from wooden dowels covered with heat-resistant plastic or metal. The wooden handles can be stained or painted, and the bowls can be hand-scored or sanded for a different look.

They are one of the most classic and traditional types of kitchen utensils. They have been used for hundreds of years, and many renowned chefs such as Charlie Trotter and Alain Ducasse use them regularly in their professional kitchens.

Stainless Steel Slotted Spoons

best slotted spoon

There are three standard stainless steel slotted spoons: large, medium, and small. The most notable difference between the different types is in size. 

The large spoon is generally wider than it is long. This can be helpful if you are trying to displace a large volume of food, such as mashed potatoes, from a bowl using the back of the spoon.

The medium spoon is more comprehensive than it is long, and the small spoon is narrower than it is long.

 When working with smaller volumes of food, the small and medium spoons are usually sufficient. The large spoon is generally used for larger volumes of food, such as soups.

Stainless steel slotted spoons can be found in a variety of price points. They can range from under $10 for a basic model to over $100 for a more high-end option.

Benefits Of The Best Slotted Spoon

Pair With Other Kitchen Utensils

best slotted spoon

Another benefit of using a slotted spoon is that it can be paired with other kitchen tools. This spoon is perfect for scooping up food from a pot or pan. Because it is made of a material that can handle heat, it is also suitable for mixing and combining hot ingredients.

For example, if you are stirring a soup and the soup begins to stick to the sides of the pot, you can remove the slotted spoon from the heat and use it to scrape the stuck-on food off. Because it is made of a heat-safe material, the slotted spoon can help with another cooking task.

Additional Uses

Remove Vegetables From A Pot

best slotted spoon

You can also use a slotted spoon to strain a drink or remove vegetables from a pot. One great way to do this is to place the slotted spoon in the bottom of a large colander or strainer. Place the vegetables on the slotted spoon and pour the liquid into the colander.

The solid food will fall through the holes in the slotted spoon and into the colander below. Remember that a slotted spoon is usually made of soft metal, such as aluminum. 

It can bend and warp in extreme heat or cold, so it is best to store it in the kitchen tool holder when not in use. The most common vegetable slotted spoons have holes cut in square, circular, or wavy lines.

Cook Acidic Foods

best slotted spoon

There are also specialty slotted spoons made of more rigid metal, such as stainless steel or cast iron. 

These are great for cooking and serving acidic foods, like tomatoes, because they prevent the acid from eroding the spoon. If you own one of these spoons, store it in the plastic sheath that came with it when not in use.

Flip Foods In The Oven

best slotted spoon

While the kitchen implement is most often used to remove food from hot oil or water, it can also be used as a tool to flip foods in the oven. 

For example, you can place an inverted spoon with holes cut on top of the food that needs to be browned in the oven. The hole pattern will catch the juices, making for even browning.

How To Use The Best Slotted Spoon

best slotted spoon

If you’re just starting with cooking, a good starting point is the obvious – cookware. You’ll be using a spoon in more ways than one.

Pouring boiling water into pasta cooking water is a great way to add flavor, and it’s also suitable for rinsing greens as you prepare them. 

Keep a small one on hand for stirring dips and dry ingredients or when you need to mix things quickly. Here is how to use a slotted spoon:

1. Fill the hole at the top of the spoon with whatever you’re cooking – liquid, food, or both.

For example, you can use a spoon to stir greens as you prepare them. Likewise, stirring sauce over high heat is an excellent way to add flavor and bring sauces to a simmer. Use a heat diffuser on a larger skillet, like this, to minimize splatter.

2. Gently drop the food into the pan while tilting the spoon slightly. You’ll hear a “ping” sound when the food hits the bottom of the pan. This is called a “tortilla chip effect.”

3. When the food is near the bottom of the pan, add a little liquid to help start simmering. If the food is too thick to quickly come out of the spoon, slowly stir in some water or stock.

4. Cook the food until it’s no longer raw in the center. Use a thick-handled spoon to gently stir the food while it cooks, allowing it to cook evenly and thicken slightly. Keep going every few minutes until the desired doneness is reached.

So, next time you cook something, remember this rule of thumb: Increase the cooking time by two minutes for every inch of thickness. For example, double the cooking time if your food is half an inch thick.

How To Choose The Best Slotted Spoon

There are different types of slotted spoons, depending on what kind of cooking you do.

Type Of Cooking

best slotted spoon

For example, if you’re making stews, a slotted spoon with a larger opening and straight sides will be more suitable than one with a small hole in the middle.

A slotted spoon with a deep or comprehensive hole will give you more control over the flow of food, but a smaller hole will make it easier to remove food. It’s also essential to keep your hands clean while cooking and working with cooking utensils.

Size And Shape

best slotted spoon

When choosing a slotted spoon, it is crucial to consider the size and shape of the slots. For smaller pieces of food, a thin-slot spoon is a good choice. For larger items, a wide-slot spoon is more practical. There are several different types of slotted spoons available.

Handles

best slotted spoon

The handle of a slotted spoon typically comes in two pieces: the handle and the end piece. The end piece is a semi-circle with a hole placed on the opposite side of the handle. 

The spoon handle should be long enough to fit comfortably in your hand while also allowing you to get a good grip on the spoon when using it.

The handles on most utensils are made from silicone or Teflon, which can harbor bacteria. Use wooden or silicone-coated utensil handles. Silicone or Teflon-coated handles do not contain any oils from your hands, but the wood and metal handle does.

These oils can remain on the utensil’s handle and transfer to food, potentially leading to contamination. To clean an ordinary wooden or plastic spoon, simply wash it with soap and water or use a commercial cleaner for wood and plastic. 

You can also sterilize wooden or plastic spoons in a 250-degree oven for 10 minutes. Moreover, to keep a silicone or Teflon-coated spoon from getting dirty, use it for shorter periods before washing.

Price

best slotted spoon

The price range is generally determined by the materials used and the thickness of the steel. Generally speaking, higher-end spoons are made with high-quality, 18/10 or 18/0 stainless steel, which will hold its shine longer and feel heavier in your hand.

The thickness of the steel used in a particular spoon also affects its durability, giving it the ability to hold up over time. 

Thicker spoons tend to be sturdier, and with more surface area on the handle, they can take a beating. The higher the price, the more durable and high-quality the spoon. Again, look for a balance between durability and cost.

The middle of the price range is for the best quality and most durable stainless steel spoons, those that are at least 18/0 material. 

18/10 is the best quality material and is considered by many to be the most durable. You will find some options that are not dishwasher safe at this price point, but they are made from a less premium material.

Dishwasher Safe

best slotted spoon

Typically, the dishwasher-safe spoons are not high-quality 18/0 or 18/10 material. While stainless steel will not rust, it is more prone to staining, so look for a dishwasher-safe option that will be easier to clean.

However, for the highest quality stainless steel spoons, we suggest you pay a little more and look for a dishwasher-safe option. A thin spoon may bend and not return to its original shape, while a thicker one can be more versatile.

The Best Slotted Spoon For Different Purposes

A slotted spoon is a kitchen utensil used to remove food from a boiling pot of water or sauce. Many different types of slotted spoons are designed for various purposes. They also have deep slots that can quickly grab food particles.

Chefs have used metal slotted spoons for deglazing roasting pans or stirring high-temperature mixtures for many years. The slots in these spoons are small enough to allow excess fat and browned bits to drip off while retaining the flavorful liquid.

However, the deep slots in a high-quality slotted spoon are more useful for cooking purposes. Place the utensils over hot mixtures to help reduce evaporation and allow fat to drip off the cooked food.

When you are done cooking, carefully scrape off the fat and reuse the spoon for the next batch of food. You can also use a slotted spoon to drain pasta, place scallops on a platter, or skim fat from a sauce.

FAQs About The Best Slotted Spoon

-How can slotted spoons be helpful to you?

We are always looking for better ways to cook, so we often experiment with kitchen utensils. We’re already a big fan of a slotted spoon and use it in the kitchen all the time. However, we have found that a slotted spoon with straight tines works even better for many purposes.

Not only can it be used to fish out the food from a pot or pan, but you can use it as a scraper for grated potatoes or cheese.

-Do part of the large plastic spoons used for cooking melt into your food?

best slotted spoon

Yes, some of the edges do get quite hot, and they are beneficial for moving food around, but they don’t seem to melt, so they should be safe to use on certain foods.

-Does it make any difference if you use metal or plastic slotted spoons?

Generally, metal utensils are more durable, but if you are careful not to put too much pressure on them, they are safe to use.

Plastic utensils are the cheapest option, but they can easily warp and dent when held against hot surfaces. Also, you can make it difficult to scrape out food from the pan or pot with a plastic utensil.
