I am so disappointed that this product does not have thousands of five-star reviews on Amazon, because it is so amazing. It has changed the way I live in the kitchen. This is a skinny, long spatula that gets the job done. It is extremely flexible. It scoops the side of bowls well. It scoops out jars well. It has scooped out everything wonderfully that I have asked it to scoop. I could ask more of this spatula. My only thought has ever been: "What would happen if it broke?" Would my world end?

It did break, one day, when we scooped a very thick bread dough. Finding this spatula again on amazon is like meeting your true love for the first time all over again. I am buying this for my entire family.

I agree with the previous reviewer stating that the tip of the spatula is flexible. I have had success in cleaning out a mayonnaise jar and spreading soft frosting and handling other soft foods. However, I had difficulty scraping out denser foods such as thick tomato paste and peanut butter. I mean, they eventually got scraped out of their respective containers, but I had to work at it. The tip is very bendy and has its limitations.

I originally ordered this to help scrape the contents from the very bottom of my blender. However, I have also started to use it to help me get out the very last of products from the jars, and it definitely scrapes it clean. In fact, I don't even want to think about how much product has been wasted in jars when I threw them away as a regular spoon was pointless in scraping the jar out. Love it, and may look in to purchasing more :)

I purchased this spatula based on its description and some of the reviews, plus thinking from the picture that it would match a set by Wilton that I already had. The head is not quite as good a quality as the Wilton set, as the head is neither clear blue or smooth silicon like the others; plus, the top half of the spatula head is quite weak/flimsy, so forget about cleaning out that peanut butter or jelly jar. Still, it is very useful for sauces, dressings and other things in skinny jars. It's also useful for stirring just about anything liquid in a glass. I did not find it very useful for icings as I prefer something smoother, wider and flatter. This spatula head is 4" long, 1" wide and 7/16" thick at the base (and for a good 1 inch and a half further) tapering down to about a 1/16 at the tip. Overall, it's 10 1/2 inches long, which, in my view, makes it useful in the kitchen.

** Update - I've ordered 4 of these, and 4 broke within 5 uses. 2 heads snapped off on the handle, two had heads not fixed to the handle and they keep sliding off. I'm bummed, these were holy grail spatulas for me.

BUYER BEWARE

Heaven in a Spatula

This spatula has become a daily grabber for me. It's so flexible, I use it to:

- spread oil on cookie sheets and silicone mats
- spread batter into perfect rounds
- get every bit of goodness out of my mixing bowls
- loosen cooked goodies from the pan while still hot
- scoop out every ounce of cream cheese from the container

It's amazing. I love, love, love it so much I just bought a second one, because I'm always using it!

Highly recommended.

I bought this spatula based on the rave reviews here and really enjoyed using it at first. I made sauce for meatloaf one time and used it to stir the sauce, spread it and then scrape the bowl and it performed all those tasks flawlessly. It does seem pretty useful.

Note that this spatula tapers to a very thin edge toward the top. After using this just a few times the edge started to form a crack just like the previous thin-edged spatula that I owned and have also reviewed and had to discard. Based on my experience now with two of them thin-edged spatulas like this don't wear well. I ended up replacing this with the OXO Good Grips Silicone Jar Spatula and have never looked back.

It's a great size for fitting into my Vitamix, but after using it only a handful of times, it broke in half. Poor design.

Handle snapped really easily just getting some muffins out of the pan, it would be better to have something made of aluminum or a better quality plastic, or even just thicker. The head was great, but now we have to hold it by the stub.
Just looking at it you can see where it snapped, that extremely thin spot is obviously a terrible design.

This is the perfect spatula for small kitchen clean-up tasks -- getting all the tartar sauce out of the little bowl; no wasting of the last little dab of anything. It works great for folding an omelette. For the heavier tasks, you want something else. I don't think it would work to loosen the lug nuts on the car for example... : )

Good idea, terrible execution. This is an example of what happens when someone designs a product that seems so simple there's no possible way it could be screwed up, so they decide to skip the testing. The result: a purported jar scraper that's too wimpy to scrape out jars. You might as well use a wet noodle. Perhaps if the hard plastic handle extended another 2 inches or so into the silicone, giving it a backbone, it would work better. Also, the silicone at the point where the handle is inserted should be wider than the handle and a bit rounded, so you could clean the area under the jar's "shoulder".

I've had this for nearly two years and still haven't found a good (or any) use for it. As a jar scraper, It's a complete failure. and, given how wimpy it is, I can't imagine that it would be any good as an icy spatula. (In my experience, an icy spatula needs to be rigid so you have some control. The one I use one made of stainless steel and has an offset.) I considered returning this, but it seemed environmentally irresponsible to waste so many resources to return such a small, inexpensive item.

P.S. I noticed that several of the positive reviews have mentioned that it works with mayonnaise. I have to admit that I haven't tried that yet. I don't use much mayonnaise and I usually have to throw it out before reaching the bottom of the jar because the date has expired. Maybe this spatula has value as a mayonnaise jar scraper. If it had been labeled as such, I would never have bought it because 1) I don't use much mayonnaise and 2) I don't believe in buying ultra-specialized gadgets and equipment, unless I expect to use them daily.
