Don’t you hate those hard plastic cheap scrapers? Here’s a reasonably priced alternative that’s very good.
When yet another cheap plastic bowl scraper broke this week I went in search of something better that would still be affordable. I found the Bradshaw silicone scraper for only $1.99.
Both narrow and wide scrapers were available, but I wanted a narrow one. This one’s blade is 1 3/8 x 2 3/4 inches. The scraper blade comes on a flat wooden handle, and the blade does not pull off easily. The total length of the tool is 10 inches. Three colors were available, pink, blue and green. There is a large hole at the top of the handle for hanging.
Stamped on the handle it says, “Heat proof to 450 degrees.” Well, I’ve melted many a scraper, so this sounded good. To test this, I put a pan of water on the stove to boil. When it boiled I sat the scraper in it, with the blade resting on the bottom of the pan and left it there for several minutes. When I took it out the edge of the scraper was not damaged at all. That feature alone is a money saver, considering how many cheap ones I’ve deformed by getting them too hot! It survives the dishwasher just fine, although with a wooden handle, I’ll probably mostly try to just rinse it after use.
The blade is nicely flexible. See picture.
The only features I am not sure I will like is that the blade is a little bigger than the blade of the cheap scraper, and the rounded side of the tip is more like a rounded off square than a sweeping angle. But I think that if I really dislike this I could trim the blade with a pair of heavy duty shears to make it the shape I want.
