We spend a lot of time in our kitchens because, let’s face it, we all have to eat! During the Holidays, it becomes a particularly busy spot since most of use have to host or cook something for one event or another. When cooking or baking, what really makes a difference are the tools you use to work with. I think investing in quality is essential and want to share with you a new Canadian kitchen tool company that I just discovered!
Week # 62 Challenge: Bake a recipe using my new Littledeer Hard Maple kitchen tools!
Important note: Littledeer was very open to supporting my blog and sent me these tools, upon my request, free of charge.
What is Littledeer all about?
Littledeer has been designing handmade hard maple tools for over 25 years. These tools are of superior quality as they can withstand use better than other tools in it’s category. Many professionals opt for Littledeer, therefore you know you are getting the best for your kitchen. Each piece has a specific function and a really sleek looking design… I also love that they are made of Hard Maple, nothing artificial about these products!
What type of tools are available?
Littledeer handmakes various series of hard maple tools such as:
- Cooking paddles: including items like The Pot Scoop, the The Better Spreader (useful for kids to cut safely), The Wedge a multi-purpose tool and many more.
- Serving spoons and tongs: including The Wide Serving Scoop to serve potatoes and rice, The Salad Scoops, The Sprongs to help place appetizers and desserts and many more.
- Stands and Boards: including Cutting Boards in various sizes, The Paddle Stand to store your wood tools, Mapleware Polish to retain the original state of your Littledeer tools and more.
One aspect I particularly like is that the cooking paddles come in either right-hand or left-hand format for extra comfort.
Prices vary depending on the tool and, although the price point may be higher then what you may be used to, it’s a worthwhile investment to make in your kitchen!

For the purpose of this article, I received The Pot Scoop to mix, beat, & fold and The Propeller to stir and scrape sides for cold and warm sauces. Once my Christmas recipes picked, I got to put both Littledeer tools to the test! I couldn’t wait..
I am still impressed with how well Littledeer tools worked. I could see the difference with how the ingredients mixed, how comfortable the grips felt and how easy they were to clean. Wish I had discovered these tools a long time ago, they are amazing!
Ready for the oven…
My Cranberry Bundt Cake turned out perfectly in the end!
