excellent functional itemI have had two of these spreaders by Tramontina, with the "pollywood" handles. Very pleasing to hold and use; functional, great form. They are a "go to" item in our kitchen drawer next to the toaster and knives. If friends come for wine and cheese they "go to" these spreaders before fancy silver or gift shop spreaders-- a great thing is just a great thing. It wipes off in seconds but occasional dishwashing does not hurt it at all.
