Best Silicone (“Rubber”) Spatulas & Our Testing Winners

whether we’re baking or cooking
scrambling or sauteing flipping or
folding a heatproof silicone spatula is
one of the busiest tools in the kitchen
we tested 10 spatulas priced from about
seven to nineteen dollars including our
previous winner it’s a heat proof model
used in restaurant kitchens everywhere
the rubbermaid 960 3 high heat scraper
sometimes the spatula felt a little too
big for home use so we looked at new
contenders and we tried every model in
every type of task including folding dry
ingredients into whipped egg whites
folding pureed fruit into whipped cream
stirring mix-ins like chocolate chips
and nuts into thick cookie dough and we
also use them to cook stirring and
turning scrambled eggs in a skillet
onions and risotto in a saucepan and
chopped carrots in a Dutch oven then we
use them to scrape up Fond from a
skillet to remove scrambled eggs from
the pan without breaking up the curds
and to scrape sticky honey out of
measuring cups and small mixing bowls
now along the way we consider how the
heads and handles of each spatula helped
or got in the way for instance models
with smaller heads moved less food with
each pass so it took more time and
effort to mix cookie dough or to stir
risotto a larger heads barely fit in
tight spaces like food processor work
bowls or one cup measuring cups
we preferred spatulas with mid-sized
heads about four by two and a half
inches goosies worked faster and more
efficiently in a variety of tasks now
the shape of the spatula heads also
mattered if you got too sharp the top
angle it made it harder to scrape and
stir because there just wasn’t enough
area to make easy contact and spatulas
where they handle sticks into a head
like a popsicle stick meant that there
are these annoying ridges where food
gets stuck and prevented thorough mixing
and it took multiple swipes to wipe it
clean now the texture of the silicone
spatula blades made a big difference to
now one blade that was just too stiff it
just skidded over Bowl and pan sides and
it nearly deflated egg whites and
whipped cream only tried to fold them
but then thin flimsy heads on other ones
they just curled up like floppy noodles
totally useless now our favorite had a
straight top edge and one gently curved
corner that matched the
doors of balls and instruct the right
balance between firmness and flexibility
for perfect easy mixing and scraping now
handles were also important if they were
too narrow or they’re too chunky
they were just uncomfortable to hang on
to as we worked if they’re too slick
they just slid around in our hands one
handle had these big holes that made it
really awkward to grab and use we
preferred handles with a fairly even
with now that you thick or thin with a
nice simple smooth shape that let us
group at multiple ways and use the
spatula at any angle comfortably and
securely and you know what I hate about
spatulas when the handles melt we heated
a skillet to 450 degrees and wrested
each spatula in the pan for 10 minutes
plastic handles ended up with these deep
melted grooves
wood handles were fine but textured
silicone handles resisted melting plus
they always felt nice and grippy in our
hands as we used them and we really
preferred spatulas made of one single
seamless piece of silicone both head and
handle so no food or dish water could
get stuck in crevices
we had one model that drips dishwater
into our freshly whipped cream now
another pet peeve I have silicon
spatulas that get cut up we scraped our
food processor Bowl with the blade in
place to see which ones came out
unscathed and some actually did
now finally we don’t want a spatula they
easily get stained or smelly so we
soaked them all in a slurry of warm
tomato sauce minced garlic and curry
powder for two hours then we washed them
and we checked for stains and leftover
smells and then we washed them 50 more
times in the dishwasher and by hand to
see if any still came out good as new at
the end of all of this we had a winner
it’s called the Dro living seamless
silicone spatula for about 11 dollars
now this spatula had it all had a
texture that’s firm enough for scraping
and scooping but just bendy enough to
get every drop with straight sides and a
wide flat blade it’s scraped and mixed
efficiently and it had a blade small
enough that fit neatly into tight
corners it’s one piece silicone design
has no nukes or crannies to trap food or
dishwater
and it’s grippy handle was exceptionally
comfortable in every testers hand for
$11 it’s our new favorite silicone
spatula
