What Is a Restaurant Spatula?

A restaurant spatula is a common term given to various types of food turners. Food turners can include a pancake turner, a fish turner, a hamburger turner, a steak turner, and more. Different types of turners are also constructed of different types of materials, but the most common material is stainless steel. A stainless steel turner, in fact, is considered as one of the most durable and heavy-duty types of food turners in the food-service industry today.

However, it is important to remember that a metal spatula should never be used with cookware that has nonstick coating because the metal can scrape off the coating of your pan, which not only ruins the pan but can also serve to transfer harmful chemicals to the food that might potentially contaminate your customers’ dish.

In general, however, a restaurant spatula is mainly described as a cooking utensil that is used for turning food as it is cooked (either fried or grilled). A restaurant spatula usually features a flat flexible part at the end that comes in contact with the food, which is attached to a long handle that is gripped by the cook, chef, or food-service crew.

How Should You Choose a Stainless Steel Turner for Your Restaurant?

A good-quality restaurant spatula is excellent for use when cooking delicate food items such as fish, eggs, crepes, and other foods that can easily break apart when not properly handled. The right restaurant spatula will help your cook, chef, or any member of your food-service staff/crew to flip any of these aforementioned delicate foods with precision and ease.

An excellent restaurant spatula should feature a tapered or beveled edge that can be easily slid under fragile, thin, and easy-to-break food items. For use as a fish turner, look for a thinner-edged restaurant spatula because it will assist better in sliding under food items like fish fillets. A fish turner should also have upturned edges and slots.

A pancake turner, on the other hand, should possess a slightly wider blade than the usual restaurant spatula as well as thin edges. This is because cooking and flipping pancakes can be a very challenging task. Consider that your cooking staff will be cooking a piece of food item that is fairly dry and cooked on one side and moist and uncooked on the other. Needless to say, scooping up a hotcake or a pancake while avoiding breakage is one of the biggest challenges that even a trained cook will have to face. Your cooking crew, however, will certainly find it easier to flip pancakes when they use a pancake turner.

For hamburger turners, because hamburger patties can be fairly heavy, it is advisable for you to choose a spatula with a thick blade that won’t bend under a heavy burger’s weight. Also, it is important to choose a hamburger turner or grill turner with a handle that is long enough that can give the cooking crew more leverage when working in a crowded kitchen or when cooking on a grill that is used simultaneously by many food-service staff in a confined or limited space.
