Wooden spoon with notch to rest on pan

Does anyone know the maker of the wooden spoons that have a notch in the handles so that it can rest on the edge of a pan while cooking. I saw that Rachel Ray had one and I have been trying to locate one ever since.

Interesting. I haven't seen a wooden one but have a metal one. I searched on Amazon but couldn't find it.
When I first read your post I thought maybe it was the notched piece of wood that is sold to pull your hot oven rack out.
I'll stay on the look out.

Never seen this, but sounds like something that you could easily make yourself with your existing wooden spoons. Just take a knife (not your kitchen knives please ) and carve out a notch.

I don't really think so or I am not visualizing where this would be. With my metal one it is very much a matter of balance. Thinking more, maybe a notch on both sides of the upper part of the inside of the spoon bowl near where the handle comes in--maybe that is what you were visualizing also. But it will have to be high up--or have a long spoon bowl or it won't "hang".

I either lay the spoon across the top of the pan, on the handle or on the counter.

Never really had a problem. Guess I use a spoon with a long enough handle to prevent it from falling in. Also, like Andy M., I either put it across the top of the pan or in a spoon rest on the counter.
