My Wonderful Williams-Sonoma Spoonula
A friend of mine re-gifted some small spatulas and strange-looking utensils to me. The larger utensils of the bunch were strange-looking; a wedge of concave silicone on a wooden handle. It was fairly large and chunky. I tossed it into a drawer thinking that I'd throw it away after my friend left.
One day, after having neglected kitchen chores in such a long time that my spatulas and spoons were dirty, I grabbed this strange utensil. I don't recall what I was cooking - probably scrambled eggs. I do recall how I immediately loved this spoon-spatula. Despite it's relatively hefty weight, it was comfortable and easy to handle. It scraped and flipped my food like a dream.
Since then, I've looked it up on the internet and identified it as a Williams-Sonoma Spoonula with a wooden handle. I want to purchase another one or two because I like it so much. I've owned this one for approximately a year now. I have not melted the silicone end - as I often do my spatulas.

I recommend a silicone spoonula for the following reasons:
- in the fry pan - scrambled eggs and sauteed veggies
- stirring sauces - gravy and alfredo sauce
- mixing batters - perfect for scraping every drop of pancake or cake batter from the bowl
- scraping that last bit of the peanut butter from the inside of the large jar
- It does not scratch my non-stick pans
- It has not melted
- Is extremely durable - I JUST noted that it is to be hand-washed. I've run mine through the dishwasher after every frequent use. Which explains the slight wear of the wooden handle. Oops.
