Spatula From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A spatula is a small implement with a broad, flat, flexible blade used to mix, spread and lift materials including foods, drugs, plaster and paints. It derives from the Latin word for a flat piece of wood or splint (a diminutive form of the Latin spatha, meaning broadsword), and hence can also refer to a tongue depressor. The words spade (digging tool) andspathe are similarly derived. The word spatula is known to have been used in English since 1525.[1]
