Should I use stainless utensils? Or wooden? I'm tired of melted-edged plastic spatulas and spoons. What are some really GOOD quality utensils that will last?
Yesterday I had to try out my new omelet pan...WOW! I didn't even need a utensil for that! I was able to flip it in the air and slide that baby onto the plate utensil-free! I felt so chef-erly. Very cool.
Congrats on the SS ALl Clad. I am sure you'll love it.
I almost exclusively use silicone spatulas and spoonulas. You can pick them up pretty much in any good kitchenware store. I have maybe 8 of them now. I have one wooden spoon that I've had for a gazillion years.
I use plastic "flipping" spatulas. SS fish spatula.
I use wire whisks, though I have a silicon-coated one, too.
Both metal and silicone coated tongs.
Metal ladles and pasta thingie -- Made by All Clad, by the way.
