Having the right tools in your kitchen can turn jobs into joys. From stirring stews to scraping out bowls, a silicone spatula is essential in any kitchen.
I was resistant to moving into the modern world and getting a silicone spatula for a long, long time. I figured if a wooden spoon was good enough for my mom (who taught me to cook), it's good enough for me. Who needed this new fangled fad?!?! Nope, not me! Especially when I got a silicone spatula in a gift bag and it did not work. It was me and my slightly burned wooden spoons for a few more years.
On a whim while watching an America's Test Kitchen episode, I figured if a silicone spatual is good enough for ATK then it will be good enough for me! At only $13.74 I figured I really can't go wrong by getting the Kitchen Aid Commercial High-Heat Scrapper, 13.5-Inch.
It was a dream. Here are some highlights:
- Doesn't stain
- Light weight
- Large spatula surface to make folding and stirring a breeze
- Cleans out a bowl or pan like a champ
- Really stands up to high heat sauteing - 5 years strong and no melted tips
- Dishwasher safe
- Able to handle heavy duty mixing, super sturdy
I've been gifting this to anyone who likes or hates to cook because this is a tool that will get used and people will fall in love with it. I send it as a gift to friend's houses that I often cook at so I don't have to travel with it in my to-go cook-kit!
Here are some comments about this spatula:
"It's like having an extra finger to scrap a bowl" - sister
"I never understood why you are so crazy about this spatula until I used it" - SO
You won't regret getting this essential kitchen tool.
