This spoon's unique slot pattern is designed to strain steadily without allowing food to slip through. Non-slip handle reaches into deep pots, great for stirring, serving and mixing. Unibody silicone construction, heat resistant to 550 F, easy to clean, dishwasher and nonstick safe, and nearly indestructible - it will not discolor, warp, melt, or chip. This solid silicone slotted spoon won't scratch or damage delicate cookware. Our proprietary fiberglass core provides better heat resistance and longer life than cheap iron and stainless steel cores, which heat up the handle and degrade silicone quality. The unibody design is super hygienic - no holes or seams for food/oils to get caught in, so no place for bacteria to grow. Dishwasher safe on any rack or extremely easy to clean by hand.
