Batter Finger: Love It or Hate It?

A couple of weeks ago, I called a peanut butter and jelly spreader totally useless. However, many of you thought it was quite useful and admitted to wanting one. When I came across this batter finger — a tool that helps you lick batter from a bowl without getting your finger dirty — I immediately thought of the pb&j spreader. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about the finger; it's fun but I don't know if I want one in my kitchen. I like to lick my fingers when making a delicious cake batter. How do you feel about it? Do you love or hate the batter finger?

Completely pointless... unless you have a small child. I'm sure they would think this was silly and fun ;)

I like using a flat rubber spatula. That doesn't miss a bit of batter in the bowl. ;)

using your finger is part of the fun. and really, the finger thing looks a little perverse. don't think i want to see a little one with that in their mouth.

It's cute and I might buy it for my little two-year old friend next door, but not for myself.

It's a cute little gadget, but I see it as a waste of space/money. As someone else mentioned, why not use a utensil that is more of a multi-tasker and not a uni-tasker? That being said, it might be a cute gift for a little girl or little boy that likes to help bake... like as part of a gift basket or something to that affect.

how is this any different than just using a normal spatula?? anyway, i'd rather use my finger. the best part of baking is licking the batter or dough off of your fingers.

YOU SHOULDN'T BE LICKING BATTER, PERIOD. Seriously. My best friend's brother died from salmonella poisoning from licking the bowl from a batch of chocolate chip cookies that contained raw eggs. Stupidest thing ever, because you shouldn't have a reason to use it.

If you're gonna use a utensil, you might as well use a spoon or something else that's not a unitasker.

It's fun but quite useless. And what's the pleasure when you can't lick your finger from the batter of a cake?
