If you're right handed, then you would usually be standing somewhat to the right. It's mostly about being where the splash isn't, if it should occur.

I think you'd be OK as long as you didn't flip the item towards you.

I'm sure your right. It's surprising, though, how many people do just that (flip towards themselves).

Hopefully, just once.

Don't do it without a shirt on . . . (Maybe this should be in "Stupid things you've done in the Kitchen?")

I usually use a pair of chopsticks to turn the patties gently over and then a slotted spatula to dish them out.

Aw, geeze Fraidy - I usually just use my finger (sometimes a fork or spoon) and a spatula.

Now, if that makes you "annoyed" - I would hate to see your reaction to having to open the can ... and the rest of the steps in the recipe!

Look on the bright side ... at least they are not sticking to the bottom of the pan! To me THAT would be annoying!

Nope, they never stick. They slide around pretty well, though! I already do the finger thing, but I guess I'll try my smaller thin spatula on the other side next time. It's not a big problem or even a major annoyance, just something I noticed (again) when I made salmon patties the other night.

What I do in this situation is to use my finger and a spatula.
No, they don't stick. They do slide around quite a bit, though! I've already (for years) been using the finger method but I think next time I'll just slip a smaller, skinnier spatula on the other side to slide it on the wide spatula.

This really isn't a big problem or even much of an annoyance, just something I noticed the other night when I made my salmon patties.
