As you probably know by now, OXO has created quite a reputation for marketing quality, affordable kitchen products that are comfortable to use. So let’s see if their Bent Icing Knife lives up to the Good Grips standard:
The blade is bent at the handle, allowing it to be much more flexible than an ordinary pastry knife as well as adding an ergonomic angle for better comfort. We’re glad to see that it’s stainless steel as always. And it’s dishwasher safe, too.
But durable stainless steel doesn’t necessarily mean that the knife’s thin design will work for all types of frostings. Many customers have questioned the thinness of the Bent Icing Knife, saying that it’s too thin for denser types of frosting. However, if your area of expertise usually revolves around lighter and fluffier frostings, then you’ll be just fine because that’s what this knife was designed to work with.
The handle is comfortable, resilient, and non-slip even when wet. It’s made from a rubber compound with the standard OXO grip traction on the sides. And it features a loophole on the end so you can hang it in your kitchen if you prefer not to use drawer storage or a knife block. But if you foresee this icing knife getting stored in a block, then make sure you have at least 12.5 inches of room available since that’s how long the knife is.
So whether you’re a professional cake decorator or a lover of all things moist and sugary, you’ll like having the OXO Good Grips Bent Icing Knife around.
