Giggle, smirk. Thanks for the good laugh, brooksy.

I don't own any silicone utensils or other silicone kitchen items. I have been curious how well they work.

Sierra you could get me into an awful lot of trouble, but, generally the more gentle "utensils" were made of latex, but in the new world where things must be done a a far greater pace it was found that even with the variable speeds, latex was failing. Silicone now gives greater life expectancy to things like the old "zoom sticks".

As for kitchen utensils, yes, silicone gear it quite good. I have found however that the cheaper tools don't like being left in a pan on heat and tend to deshape a little.

As far as the others, my preference is "au naturale" as God created, regardless. Mind you though, if swimming is a pasttime then wood is a good choice and environmentally more responsible incase anything happens :rotfl:

You're gunna get me shot Sierra asking questions like that...

What do you reckon about Alix in her skin tight Silicone cooking outfit.

My daughter just sent me a text message:

An oriental gentleman rang his boss and said "Me too sick to work today." The boss said,"When I'm sick I make passionate love to my wife."

A couple of hours later the oriental gent rings back,"Me ok now. By the way, you have nice house."

Alix - talked to youngest son this afternoon and he said his WalMart carries the silicone pastry brushes - about $2.95 each.

Silicone, fun for the masses

I personally love silicone (in the kitchen that is). I use silpats, roul'pats, silicone brushes, spatulas, and even silicone muffin "pans" and love the results with all of them. I am especially fond of silpats, I don't know what I would do without them. Roul'pats are great when I work with chocolate. My silicone spatulas are rated at 650F and I have never had a single complaint with them. I do like wood utensils and use them a ton. I prefer olive wood and good ol' bamboo, both for their strength.

As for silicone outside of the kitchen I honestly feel it has absolutely no place... Au natural only!
