Because when you heat plastic, it burns and melts. What you want is nylon, not plastic. I buy all my nylon utensils at the 99 Only store, and when something bad happens to one of them, I just trash it and buy a new one.

I use silicone spatulas - and not even the traditional shaped ones. I use the kind you stir with, which work just fine for everything I've ever had to flip or use to remove from the skillet, plus it serves double duty for stirring mixes and things in a bowl. Silicone is good up to 650 degrees.

I don't miss the old, plastic ones.

There are spatulas that are special for hot surfaces. Just ask in the store.

I have one piece silicone spatulas that are perfect for use on the stove. They don't melt or burn. Being one piece they don't collect food in the handle/blade joint. I bought them in an outlet mall at a kitchen store. They were reasonably inexpensive.

I have a plethora of utensils that I use with my non-stick cookware but my favorite are the heat resistant silicon spatulas I picked up on an online restaurant supply. There are lots of spatulas out there that are cheaper but these are by far the best and most versatile. I've had mine for a couple years now but I'm sure they're same product.

I use silicone spatulas from Les Creuset. They have different sizes and shapes and the heads come off for easy cleaning. But there are many brands that are excellent too. Kitchenaid and Oxo are two that come to mind.

I got mine at the LC outlet out on Eastern Long Island, but I know that Amazon.com carries them also.
