I've had it with my cheap rubber spatulas. They either get a permanent bend in the rubber end or the handle breaks. Anyone have a favorite brand of rubber spatula that doesn't do either of these things? I'm ready to make an investment to keep my sanity. TIA!

I use the silicone ones for everything because they can take high heat and are soft enough to use for icings.

I love Pampered Chef spatulas. Sometimes they even sell cute pink ones! icon_biggrin.gif

I bought 2 at Michaels last Jan. They had Christmas designs on them but who cares, they were cheap and are still like new though I use them all the time.

I like the WS spoonulas but only the translucent ones so I can see the wood handle through it. I had a colored one and I couldn't see through and it got moldy.

I really like their specialty spatulas that they offer for various holidays in the kids' baking sets. The are stiff and do a great job. You have to get past the weird colors and having to look at the designs on the blade face.
They are a totally different design and material from the regular ones.

I just got this kitchenaid spatula and I am in love with it!

it is sturdy and bends just enough - it conforms to the side of the mixing bowl - it is long and gets almost all the way down the bowl

I picked up some at Crate and Barrel on my last trip. C&B is not in my area icon_sad.gif They are silicone and have just the might amount of bend, size and a straight edge and a curved edge to take care of scrapping out either shape. I have been using them almost exclusively instead of the other ones in my drawer.

Oh and Ikea had one that I picked up. I only found one laying in an odd place. It was a set of skinny long one and a really large short squatty curved edge for scraping out a bowl. I love those too, especially the short squatty one. You can clean out a bowl in on swoop with that.

I use the large KA spatula too. It's sturdy and I love the longer length, fits like a glove with my KA mixer bowl!

I got rid of all my 2 piece rubber spatulas after my last one broke while I was coloring some BC (except for the very small one I use to scrape the shortening out of my measuring cup). I love the 1 piece bowl scrapers I found at a cake shop near my home. I will never go back to rubber spatulas again.

Here is a link that sells them to give you an idea what they look like:

Do NOT buy the farberware rubber spatulas with the black handle and the clear scraper part! The handle is made in two parts, and when you put any amount of stress on it they snap in half. Totally worthless, I bought three of them and two broke the first time I used them. I'm being very gentle with the last one until I can buy some one-piece ones.

I received some Calphalon ones for Christmas that have been working really well for me. They are black and silver. I'll bet you can find them at Bed Bath & Beyond (and use your coupon!!!)

Zyliss makes some of the coolest kitchen gagets. They are a little expensive, but pretty good quality.
