Heck, I mentioned that to my cooking buddy the other night.
They DO all use the same spoon.

Therefore, we agreed that if WE got that spoon, we would therefore
be --VOILA!-- Foodnetwork worthy cooks too!

Of course, we were somewhere near the end of a 12 pack by then, LOLOLOL!

Hey - Lazy K is my old (goes back to the days when you had to have a license and the FCC actually enforced the rules) CB handle!

I find it quite refreshing, and encouraging, to see that some of our new members are actually reading our old threads and not just starting new ones to rehash what has already been beaten to death.

I still do not think that the "brand name" on the spoon makes it good or bad ... but the quality of the spoon. Thin wooden spoons with handles about as thick as a #2 pencil do not last very long ... heftier spoons do last for a while. H.A. Mack just happens to make good heavy spoons - a comperable spoon with any other brand name on it would probably be just as good.

FWIW - after buying really cheap wooden spoons from the grocery store, K-Mart, Target, etc. that split and broke after a year or two - the hefty ones I got from Fantes that look like the ones the cooking demonstrators on TV use are still going strong with only one problem ... the handle on the one with the 18-inch handle has warped a little - but none have broken or split after 5 years of heavy use - even if they were not expensive or made from more exotic woods.

Hefty, Hefty, Hefty ... wimpy, wimpy, wimpy ....

"Monkey see, monkey...spoon?"

I kid! I kid! If I had a nickel for each time I've gotten the evil eye for saying, "But, Mom, Alton Brown says..." I'd be a rich man!

Definitely also agree with quality over brand name statement. That's why I like to try to see things in the flesh before I buy them. Even name-brand stuff can be junk (I can't tell if self-censorship made that more funny or less), so I find it easiest to cut through the hype in person.
