Silicone spatula broke

I was stirring bread dough with it and the handle snapped in half ! The spatula has Hamilton Beach on it. The silicone head lasted but the handle didn't . I can't remember when or where I bought it but it is not new. I have broken wooden spoons too stirring bread dough . I think I will have to use my hands next time, with food grade gloves. Oh well.

Careful. If everything you use to stir bread dough breaks, maybe you should think twice about using your hands...

William Sonoma has a wood handle that looks sturdy. And Henckel, twin cuisine collection, has a metal handle spatula. Good Luck.
I brake my plastic handles all the time, wacking them against whatever, and I think the dishwasher temps. don't help either.
