What experts liked
A large spatula with tapered edges that make it easy to flip burgers, eggs, pancakes, and more. Thick silicone-coated handles are comfortable to grip. Ideal for non-stick cookware.
- BestReviews
The edges are thin, and it's very easy to slide the turner under the food you want to flip over.
- Kitchen Byte
The silicone is layered on top of stainless steel to give it a solid construction. The handle is about 12.5 inches long, so you can stay well away from the heating element.
- Sous Beurre Kitchen
This large turner can handle a big burger or a pancake with ease and is flexible enough to sneak under cookies, even if they’re a little close together. The handle has the standard OXO soft grip that’s easy to hang onto.
- The Spruce Eats
This spatula combines the strength of steel with the flexibility of silicone by bonding the silicone with stainless steel. The outer layer of silicone is bonded to the stainless steel core for enhanced flexibility. The thin edges of this spatula make it perfect for flipping delicate dishes like crepes or eggs by still keeping them intact as well.

What experts didn't like
The tip are flimsy and not ideal for cutting or chopping. Though the top is rated to withstand up to 600 degrees, the handle is not heat resistant and prone to melting. Reports of breakage
- BestReviews
Weak transition point.
- Kitchen Byte
One user has said that they didn’t care for the part of the spatula where the silicone extended beyond the steel because it wasn’t very stiff and made it hard to flip heavier foods.
- Sous Beurre Kitchen

An Overview On Spatulas

No kitchen is complete without a few spatulas that make cooking and baking at home a breeze. The two most basic types of spatulas include sets that are designed to scrape batter and mashed potatoes from the sides of a bowl and individual models that are made to flip pancakes and hamburgers.

When you’re ready to shop for a spatula, consider the following helpful information:

It is important to start off examining the materials used to make the spatula. Silicone is ideal, as it is capable of withstanding high temperatures. Generally, you’ll find they are able to handle heat between 450 and 600 degrees Fahrenheit. Under those temperatures, the spatulas are safe from melting, becoming discolored and even shrinking.

Some models, like the Upgood Silicone Spatula Set, also use an internal stainless steel core to provide added durability. The steel also keeps the handle and core from bending while you’re busy mixing ingredients.

Take a look at the spatula’s handle to make sure you’ll get a comfortable non-slip grip. The GLOUE Silicone Spatula Set features a 3D handle made using an ergonomic design that does just that.

Check for any recommendations or certifications that let you know you’re buying a quality product. For example, the DI ORO Chef Series Premium Turner Silicone Spatula is made using a LFGB Certified Silicone. It’s also BPA-free and approved by the FDA.

Finally, consider any extras. Does the spatula set come in different colors, or does it contain spatulas that are different sizes for completing both big and small tasks? The StarPack Home StarPack Basics Silicone Spatula Set goes one step further by offering purchasers a free bonus cooking PDF entitled “101 Cooking Tips.”

DYWM Fun Fact

  • It isn’t known who exactly was the first person to invent this handy kitchen tool, but it is believed to date back to at least 1525.
  • The spatula has been called by many names, such as a turner, flipper and a fish slice. Because spatulas removed all the batter from a bowl, they were referred to as “child cheaters.” Little ones were left without any batter to lick.
  • Weird Al Yankovic once created a fake ad for a store called Spatula City in his movie titled “UHF.”

 

The Spatula Buying Guide

  • Thanks to silicone’s ability to withstand heat, spatulas are safe to place in a dishwasher. Of course, they are also a cinch to wash by hand with a little dish soap and warm water.
  • Always look for a warranty before making your purchase. That way, if the spatula doesn’t live up to your expectations or doesn’t meet the company’s claims, you can get your money back. Some warranties are only good for a short period of time, while others last forever.
  • Check the top of your spatula for a hole. This hole allows you to hang your spatula in your kitchen from a hook. If the spatula doesn’t have one, you can store it upright in a jar with a few other utensils, or place it in a utensil drawer.
  • Spatulas have plenty of other uses besides scraping brownie batter. You can use them as a fly swatter, back scratcher, dry wall scraper, snow scraper, clay cutter, plant supporter and even to give your snowman arms in the winter.
  • There are several things you need to take into consideration when comparing spatula prices. Start by examining how many spatulas come in the set. Divide that number by the price to know how much you’re paying per spatula. You’ll find the StarPack Home StarPack Basics Silicone Spatula Set and the Upgood Silicone Spatula Set are slightly more expensive than the GLOUE Silicone Spatula Set, even though each set has four spatulas. Next, you’ll want to examine the quality of the spatulas. The DI ORO Chef Series Premium Turner Silicone Spatula has a higher price tag because it is professional grade.
