A good spatula scrapes, mixes, and stirs, and I am always reaching for mine. I have two, and they always seem to be dirty when I'm in the middle of a big recipe testing run.
Not only are these Le Creuset spatula spoons bright and cute (shaped like garden vegetables! Cool!) but their rounded shape is a nice complement to the longer, narrower spatulas we already have. A rounded spatula is great with the shape of some bowls and pots.
Also, these won't melt like our old rubber spatulas. (They of the sadly ragged edges.) These are heat-resistant up to 800°F, and the removable heads are dishwasher safe, too.
