Designed with a broad spoon base, this utensil serves several purposes when preparing foods. The Ladle is a kitchen tool that can be used to serve foods, such as sauces, gravies, and toppings as well as skim and stir ingredients. Ladles can be classified for specific purposes such as a Gravy Ladle or a Skimming Ladle and each is designed differently in order to accomplish the intended task. Ladles used for serving are made with a deeper bowl in the spoon and may be somewhat short handled. Ladles that are used when cooking, such as Skimming Ladles are built with longer handles to keep hands away for hot liquids and ingredients. Ladles are made in numerous shapes, sizes and from a variety of materials, such as stainless steel, sterling silver or plastic. When selecting, consider the task and the type of foods most often being prepared or served in order to purchase a Ladle best suited for the functions desired.
