Handy little multi-use tool,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: iSi North America B10001 Silicone Scraper Spatula, Red (Kitchen)
We looked high and low for a scraper I could use comfortably to clean caked on food off with. I have arthritis in my hands and the usually scrapers are tiny little hard plastic things I can't grip most nights.
This scraper is much larger than you might expect from the picture. It fits very nicely in my hand. Because it is silicone, it will not damage your cookware no matter how you are using it. It fits securely in your hand so when you are scraping out a bowl of batter or whatever, it won't be slipping out of your hand in such a way that you end up contaminating your food with your hand, or covering your knuckles in cake batter.
We've decided to go ahead and get a few more of these - one to keep by the sink for scraping off cooked-on foods, one to use for scraping bowls with meat products - like when using ground beef for burgers or meatloaf, and one to use for things like batter and such.
Another added bonus to the silicone - it is heat resistant, so you can use it to scrape sauces, gravies and the like out of hot pans. Particularly handy if you're trying to make a roux and want to loosen up all the little cooked bits off the bottom of your pan before adding your flour.

The dimensions are as follows:
Straight edge - 5 1/4"
Full length - 9 1/2" (including Straight Edge)
Height 3 3/4" (From bottom of Straight Edge to the highest point of the arc of the curve on top)
I'll also note that the straight edge has a little ruler on it that goes from 0"-5". Kind of a handy little extra when you desperately need a small ruler in the kitchen.
These have stood up so well for us... I bought my first in July 2008 - it is February 2013, and I'm still using that same one almost daily. We have five of them total, all still in excellent condition, but that first one I bought has been used to scrape dirty dishes pretty much every day since it arrived in 2008. You would NEVER know it to look at it.
There is also a little ridge in the middle of the scraper... that allows you to have a firm grip that won't slip whether you're using the straight edge or the curved to scrape. Also, that small indented curve at the end of the straight edge makes this ideal for scraping plates... because that indented curve easily accommodates the edge/lip of a dinner plate, allowing the flat straight edge to reach the entire flat surface of your dinnerware.
The design is just very well thought out all the way around... thus the reason I own so many of these for so many different tasks. LOL This is a purchase I have never once had cause to regret.
