Silicone Spatulas

These three silicone spatulas are from Williams-Sonoma. The latest versions have rounder handles but the basics are still the same.

The great thing about them is that they stand up to heat. The silicone heads can take heat up to 800 degrees. They slide off the wooden handles to go in the dishwasher. I've had mine for years. They've received some heavy use and have been in the top rack of the dishwasher countless times. Unlike cheap versions, they don't bend back under the slightest pressure. They're not stiff either, though, they have just the right strength to stand up to the job.

You can see a black spot on the smallest one, where the silicone has cracked. Supposedly, they don't crack or chip. Overall, considering how much I've used them, they're in remarkably good shape.

The set of three sells for $22.50 at www.williams-sonoma.com. Or, for an extra five bucks, you can have a monogram or message imprinted on the handles. A clever idea for a cook you love.
