Silicone spoon spatula

Thin sharp edges slide cleanly under food

When I need to scoop, scrape, or stir, I reach for my silicone spoon spatula. It’s got a steel interior to make it rigid (but springy), and is covered in silicone, which can handle 600 degrees F without burning. The surface is slightly textured so it doesn’t slip out of my hand when I’m scraping out precious morsels of buttery pressure-cooked sweet potatoes from the cooker.

Also, it’s skinny enough to fit in most jars, and cleans up with hot water and a wipedown.

It’s the best $10 I’ve spent equipping my kitchen.
