Good design but too expensive.
on December 1, 2011
These scrapers are actually designed quite well as long as you don't use them on a more-than-warm pan as they will melt. I've had that happen to me as I scraped a pan before it cooled as room-temperature steak burn can be tough to get off.
You can scrape the flat of the pan, get the corners and the walls easily because of this smart design. They should be a little bigger and are priced about triple what they should be. Frankly, I think each pan should come with one for free. I mean, you KNOW it costs nothing to make a 3" x 2 3/8" piece of plastic. Oh, and that brings me to the dimensions in the description: "7.3 x 4.9 x 3.7 inches." I guess that is for the package it comes in or something. The actual scraper is nowhere near 7". It is 3" x 2 3/8" and less than 1/4" thick.
Honestly, I rarely use these scrapers because they are too small and just mean another oily thing to wash. I just use my egg turner to do the scraping and since it's bigger it gets the job done quicker than these scrapers can. On occasions where I actually need to scrape with some force, I pull this scraper out.
So, it's a good product that works well on warm or cool pans but for 3 bucks each, it might make more sense to just use an old egg turner to do this tool's job and buy a nice new egg turner for cooking. Or you could spend 6 bucks on a new hard (not flexible) egg turner as it will get the job done quicker than these small scrapers.
They really should be an included item with pans and/or sold at a buck each thereafter.
