As a matter of common sense, it’s a bad idea to give your wife a spatula for Valentine’s Day. But as a matter of practicality, it’s a bad idea to buy a heart-shaped spatula under any circumstance. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to use this contraption. A heart-shaped spatula narrows at the base, which would cause a pancake to curve in and develop a small bulge. Compare this to a standard spatula that’s easy to control and allows for a seamless flipping motion. There may be nothing less romantic than giving cookware for Valentine’s Day, but dooming your family to a batch of misshapen, potentially undercooked pancakes is almost as inconsiderate.
