Very functional; not a first choice
on May 26, 2014
I'm over 60 and have had my share of kitchen spatulas. Ones that are worth any money (which these certainly are) are:
- heat tolerant: ever watch the tip of a rubber spatula melt at the bottom of a fry pan, you'll know
- constructed with a firm core, and flexible edges: mixing bowls to the insides of spice jars...the edge needs to conform and perform
- hold together: a gluey batch of bread dough can pull the paddle off the handle like caramel candy pulls out a loose tooth. These have passed that stress test often and the longer I use them, the more confident I am with them. Even if it DID separate, I'd find waterproof glue and stick 'em right back together...but it never has.
- dishwasher safe. Three months of use, bottom rack dishwasher cleaning and they look brand new.
- the silicone portion DID eventually pull away from the handle
- the neck of the plastic handles took a beating from banging it against the mixing bowls
- otherwise, they held up okay in washing, and the silicone portion never faulted.
- design-wise, I've moved on, and now prefer the full-silicone, steel core spatulas.
