Heat resistant upto 430F degrees fahrenheit * Dishwasher Safe * Durable and can be sterilized * Easy to Clean This spatula is made to stand up to a high volume of usage and extra-high heat: it's an at-home version of the metal spatulas restaurant cooks use to flip burgers, sandwiches, and pancakes. Peek into the kitchen next time you're at your favorite diner--they'll be using a spatula shaped like this. Why? Expediency. You can slip this spatula under two burgers and lift and flip within seconds. Its long body gets under the food and balances it so there's no drooping and slipping off the sides. There's less sticking, too, thanks to the spatula's three long air vents. And don't worry if you leave it leaning against a hot pan--it won't melt. --Dana Van Nest This matte gray slotted spatula from Matfer is flexible so it can lift and turn delicate fish, omelets, and other sauteed foods without injuring them.

The handle is grooved for a better grip and ends with a wide notch for hanging..

How America's Test Kitchen designated this a category winner is beyond me, though I'll give them the benefit of doubt and assume that when priced at $5 it was no worse than others in the comparison and w..
I have had this product for many years now (between 5 and 10 years) and I love it. After I had used it for a few months, I got rid of all of my traditional shaped (rectangle head) spatula turners since I love the Matfer so much. It is comfortable in the hand and must have been ergonomically designed for turning. I am right-handed and due to the angle on this spatula, I assume that it would not be comfortable for lefties.I use this spatula to turn foods in a pan (flip eggs, roasted veggies, etc) and espec..
'Cook's Illustrated':"While they may be called fish spatulas, these flexible, thin spatulas are equally adept at flipping chicken cutlets and steaks. We tested five popular brands--three metal and two nonstick--by flipping numerous batches of flaky haddock fillets (in large and small skillets) and found (once again) that price is not indicative of value.Priced around $7, the Matfer slotted Pelton fish spatula outperformed the Global, which cost eight times as much. The Matfer received raves for its comforta..
