Silicone spatulas: Should you buy one?

silicone spatula
Every cook needs a spatula for so many things - cooking, scraping out bowls, gentle folding. And this wide variety of tasks that it's called on to perform often means you need a wide variety of spatulas - a firm, heat-proof one for scraping a pan, a plastic one to use on a nonstick pan to stir eggs, a large one to fold in the fluffliest egg whites, a flexible one for fish.

So silicone spaulas look like a dream come true - they're heat proof, often ergonomically designed, and actually quite attactive. America's Test Kitchen ran a test on silicone spatulas to determine if, in fact, they're the answer to a cook's prayers. And, for a couple of models, the answer was yes - and the price was definitely right.

    This is a good question, and the article has some helpful points. Then you reach the point where the link is only for subscribers -- not my intention. Please don't dangle the carrot if we can't reach it!
