The reason I purchased these is that I have a tendency to leave my utensils in the pot or pan while cooking- and the plastic handles in most products melt or the metal handle get so hot it actually burns you. These not only do not melt but they do not heat up so I guess I can say they are ""really cool""? They are sleek which is very nice as I place my favorite utensil in a holder next to the stove and these slim handles have reduced the size by 2/3. They are good quality and nice looking too
I have two of most of my silicone cooking utensils but only one of these. I find I don't use it as much as I thought I would. Not that it isn't great; it is. But because it's fairly thick when I make lighter fare like omelets, I usually end up using my thinner OXO silicone omelet turner instead. This is perfect for heavier or thicker foods that I saute, e.g., pork chops, chicken cutlets, or fish filets. It's very efficient for that purpose.
I like that with silicone you never have to worry about which type of cookware you're using. Just grab it and go. I use these in my enameled and non-enameled cast ironware, my tri-ply stainless, and my one nonstick pan. I prefer the silicone utensils with the metal handles. To me, they're better balanced in the hand, lightweight, and have the added benefit of not melting if they're accidentally left in a pot or leaning up against a pan. You can't go wrong with this one.

I love to use my silicone spatula turner. It works great to protect pots, pans and casserole dishes. It is perfect. I use them daily with no problems. Cleans well in the dishwasher and looks new every time. Perfect!!
CESaute is correct about this turner being excellent for heavier food. I also use it in conjunction with the Kuhn Rikon flex turner for when I need two. The reason I got rid of my plastic turners and replaced them with silicone is health concerns over melting/leaching into food. No worries with this turner. This turner was included in a Christmas stocking I put together for my husband last year, with kitchen items from SLT. He was excited to try all the utensils, and in the future I plan to do this for friends around the holidays as well. High quality turner, so purchase with confidence.
This turner is definitely thicker than many other turners, so I wouldn't recommend it for scooping soft cookies off a baking sheet like you would with a metal utensil, but it also does have a nice sharp edge: with a little speed, I am able to easily slide it under frying eggs on a non-stick skillet. The silicone is not only flexible enough to allow the edge to bend a little, but it also acts as a spatula to which neither water nor grease will stick. This makes it great for scraping every last drop of sauce or gravy out of the pan without switching utensils. I've owned this for over a year, and it's still in great condition. It's my go-to utensil for anything cooked in a pan or skillet.
