Item is as described.
Iím happy with it.
I have a wooden one and wanted to buy a plastic paddle but I'm much happier with my wooden one. Wasn't able to scrape with this like I'd like because it was flimsy but I mash pretty thick. Depends on what you are looking for in a paddle.
I'm just using this for mini-mash and extract batches and it's wonderful. Not sure I would recommend for 10 pounds of grain and full boils though.
I have not used this as a mash paddle, and agree it would not be the best for that. However, it makes a great boil paddle, especially if using extract. Also, the knob on the small size works great at getting liquid extract out of the container.
