Thread Name: BS: How Many Spatulas Do YOU Own???
Subject: RE: BS: How Many Spatulas Do YOU Own???
How many, eh?

One metal one (not-allowed-to-use-because-all-our-pans-are-teflonated)

Two plastic ones - one large and wide and slotted... one small and solid and slightly scorched at the leading edge, giving it a space-shuttle-on-reentry sort of look.

Waaaaaay too many of the cheap wooden Ikea kind that start looking downright fluffy around the edges after being repeatedly washed and scraped across burnt eggs and washed again...

Does my chrome-plated pie lifter thingy count? It looks like a 'fish slice' and is spatulatesque...

How about my putty knife which is currently on the kitchen windowsill, and (I confess) has been used in spatuloid maneuvers when all the other ones were dirty?

And has anyone else ever used the lid of a CD case as a pancake flipper/egg easer/ meat turner? Or wrapped an old credit card in tin foil for the same purpose? 'Fess up, guys...
