Silicone Spatulas FAQ

Silicone spatulas are among the most useful cooking tools in the kitchen, especially for baking. Because they are soft and flexible they will not scratch cookware but will help you get the most food off the sides of bowls and pans. They are also sturdy and difficult to break. Below are some frequently asked questions regarding the Procizion silicone spatulas:

Q. Do they absorb odors like some plastic or wooden spatulas do?
A. Silicone spatulas have been tested on a wide variety of foods, odors, and tastes, and have been proven to not absorb any odors or flavors from the food. They are also stain resistant, and are as good as new after washing.

Q. Can you use them for mixing?
A. If you are mixing an especially dense food, then you may prefer to use a sturdy spoon, which is designed for that purpose. For mixing or spreading light mixtures like cake batter, however, silicone spatulas work very well.

Q. What is the best way to wash them?
A. Silicone spatulas are dishwasher safe and can also be washed by hand in warm soapy water.

Q. Will they melt if exposed to high heat?
A. These spatulas are heat resistant up to 480 degrees Fahrenheit. They might melt if left sitting on your frying pan at high heat, but for most cooking jobs, they are perfectly suitable.

Q. Do the spatula heads come off?
A. Unlike wooden spatulas with plastic heads, or plastic with silicone heads, these are molded together as one seamless piece of silicone. This prevents the heads from coming of and keeps any water or food from getting inside the heads and growing mold.
