I bought this more out of curiosity than actually needing it...or so I thought. I mostly intended to use the spoon part, which is a little too thick to effectively scoop out small amounts of, ahem, material. But the pokey end is PERFECTLY sculpted to get at hard to reach edges and corners of small containers, especially when the contents are sticky. For $10, this thing will pay for itself in saved product, not to mention time, many times over in its life. Which based on the fact that it's made from solid steel should be as long as you need it.
It would be nice if the grip portion was more oval shaped, for comfort and to keep it from rolling, but aside from that, it's awesome. Just don't pay too much attention to the packaging it comes with.
