I seem to be cursed with sticking cookware, ovens that heat unevenly, and general forgetfulness. Consequently, I end up scraping a lot of stuff off of my cookie sheets, out of my cake pans, etc. This is the first spatula that really does the job for me. It's incredibly thin--you can wedge it under anything--and also very flexible, so if you have to bend it (say, to get out a thick-but-sticking lemon bar) you can do so easily.
Interestingly, the handle isn't as fat and oxoesque as many of their other products, but it's still comfortable.
It holds up well in the dishwasher--I should know, I use it so much it gets washed nearly every load I do.
Every kitchen should have one. Maybe two!

Once I bought my first flexible stainless spatula I literally threw all my other spatulas out. The thin blade makes this a really versatile piece of equipment. I use it for lifting, scraping, scooping and even slicing. The best feature on this particular model is the handle. It's comfortable AND you can lean the spatula against a hot pan without fear that the handle will get too hot.

I bought this for my Mom, along with a few other OXO Good Grips baking accesories, for Mother's Day. When it arrived, I wanted to use it so badly, I had to make myself put it up and keep it for her. She loves it and uses it all the time!!! This has got to be one of the best and 'most essential' baking tools that's ever been created. With that wonderful non-slip, easy grip rubber handle and flexible stainless steal spatula blade, this little item is sure to become one of your best friends in the kitchen. It's so great for sliding under cookies or brownies, especailly for those few who don't want to quite come off the baking pan, and for turning baked fish or chicken. It's also great for flipping pancakes or even if your frying veggies, or meat. You'll find a hundred uses for it...it's so cool! It's dishwasher safe and the price is just right. If you're a big baker and enjoy cooking, then you must add this Flexible Spatula to your kitchen repertory, if you already haven't. OXO makes a wonderful whole line of great baking & cooking untensils.

Sadly, I needed to replace a very flexible spring steel turner that had age-hardened and cracked. I use cast iron, while others in the family use non-stick, and I needed two different turners. I looked for them at various places, and was very disapointed at the selection: all were too thick and not at all flexible. Amazon to the rescue! They had the OXO Good Grips listed as a "large flexible turner". I bought the stainless version for the cast iron pans, and a silicone over stainless version for the non stick.

The stainless version is fantastic. First, it is large enough to flip large pancakes without tearing them. Second, it is very thin and springy. Third, the blade is very genty curved in a manner that causes it to be stiff when it is needed. Oh, and fourth, the handle, as on all OXO products, is, well, just right. How do they do that?

When I first held it in my hand, I thought the blade would be too large for flipping a fried egg. Not so. It took only a minute or so to get the hang of using it, and I have not broken a yolk since beginning its use.

It may be hard to find this model, but I highly recommend holding out for it if you use cast-iron pans or non-treated steel cookie sheets. There simply isn't a better, thinner, or more flexible turner that I have found, and I looked a lot of places.

OXO Good Grips Large Silicone Flexible Turner

The second model, the silicone covered stainless turner, is also great if you have non-stick. It is more "mid-size" than the larger model I just described. The entire blade is covered in a smoky-colored silicone sleeve that has nicely tapered edges and is very strongly attached.

I find the nylon versions too thick, not flexible enough, and hard enough that they can damage the coating on non-stick pans (even high qualtiy ones) if the nylon blade approaches the pan at the wrong "scraping" angle.

So give yourself or someone you know who cooks a wonderful and inexpensive present they are certain to use and depend upon for years. Buy one of these turners!

I tried one of the OXO silicone head spatulas and found that it was somewhat bent, THIS OXO spatula (34491) is ***PERFECT*** -- extremely thin and flexible head, much thinner than the silicone/plastic ones by OXO -- really a delightful tool. Buy a COUPLE of these things, tools this nice grow legs. A good spatula is a nice tool -- makes your life easier and better.

This product is wonderful for scrambled eggs and other light and soft items. Trying to use it to lift and flip heavier items is a challenge because the material of the spatula is so thin and flexible. For grilled sandwiches I have to use one of my sturdy plastic spatulas or else spill the contents of my sandwich. If this is going to be your only spatula, I would recommend looking at something else. If you intend it to round out your kitchen utensil collection, then it is great!

This is the spatula you've been looking for! It is very thin and extremely flexible. I just finished using it for a batch of chocolate chip cookies and it is incredible. It easily slips under each and every cookie for easy removable with no broken cookies! With holiday baking just around the corner, I would highly recommend this spatula for everyone who enjoys baking.

Would you have just one spoon, one wisk, one measuring spoon? Probably not. This spatula is just the right one for eggs, as everyone else has already indicated. I see where someone dissed it for cookies. I find just the opposite. It's the best spatula ever for getting cookies off the baking sheet. It is not to be the sole spatula in the household for sure, but for specific tasks, it is SUPERB!

I know it sounds ridiculous, but this turner is so flexible, it is virtually impossible to lift anything with it. Even the weight of a cookie is too much for it. It can work OK if you can get at the food from the side and balance the weight in the middle, but that is not always easy. It is only $6.99, but I wish I had saved it.

These are extremely hard to find in the retail world. I bought my first one at a Junior League Holiday Bazaar, the next one at a kitchen shop in Louisiana, then one in Fairhope, Alabama, one in Destin, Florida. Everywhere, it was the last one in stock. We have given them to every family member. The perfect took for fragile crust, tight fits and perfect slices. Get several.
