Good Friday! Best Silicone Spatulas from Le Creuset

February 12th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Le Creuset Silicone Spat-Spoons

 I’ve got a mess of these silicone spatulas for all the baking and sauteeing I do. They withstand up to 800 degree-heat and they scrape every last teeny bit of batter out of a baking bowl. They flip stubborn cornbread rounds out of a pan, beat batter, and prop open oven doors for meringues.

Round handle makes the difference

But this particular one is my favorite – it’s from Le Creuset – the makers of my favorite pot, the orange Le Creuset Dutch Oven (got it when I got married).

The reason this spatula stands out is its round handle – as opposed to the flat stick found on most others. It’s comfortable in my hand and turns easily to fold egg whites or nuts into a batter.  Balance one over a couple of upended collins glasses and it serves as a noodle drying rack. The spoonish shape of the head works well, too, for things like separating an egg (lean it against the side of the bowl and break the egg onto it; the yolk remaind behind – though a pasta fork works well for that, too.

The heads come off so you can stick ’em in the dishwasher, then just wash the wood handle in soapy water, and dry it. (Dishwashers are mean on wood – so if you put yours in the DW, quit that!) The wood is quality, too – it’s made in the USA.

Where to get them

These are on sale (through Monday only), for $5.99 at Sur La Table’s web site, or go to the one near me in Downtown at the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, and get them in person.

(Web site disclosure: I was not paid in any way to write about these, or Sur La Table. I use them in my own kitchen – and I shop at Sur La Table because I like them, too.)

    It’s almost an all-around kitchenware. Ideal to use for cooking, baking and even scraping off sticky leftover from the plate.
