Heatproof Silicone Spatulas
I still love my wooden spoons, but honestly I reach for silicone spatulas much more often these days. Silicone spatulas are versatile. It is worth owning a few in different sizes and shapes, because they can scrape out containers with various contours (even blender jars), mix ingredients for baking, and stir hot ingredients. They are also safe for use in nonstick skillets, because they won’t damage the coating. This model from GIR is my all-time favorite. It has the perfect degree of flex, and a unibody design so there is nowhere for grime to hide. The angled edge works great for getting into corners.
