The rubber spatula is an indispensable kitchen gadget, coming in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. The tool is designed with a curved edge so you can scrape bits of food along the edges of a pan.
Be sure to buy a heatproof rubber spatula that is rated at a higher temperature. In fact, heat resistant rubber spatulas are the only kind you should use. Spatulas that are not high heat rated will leave behind melted white rubber on your pan and in your food. Who wants to eat that?
You can find high heat rated, heat resistant rubber spatulas in most retail stores or online.
