Cooking Utensils Don't Get the Credit They Deserve
I have an inexpensive industrial plastic slotted spoon that won't scratch any of my nonstick pan surfaces, but I have to admit those stainless steel ones sure look good.
I purchased my plastic slotted spoon at the same place I purchase my tongs but they are available in all the catalogs and Wall Mart type stores. This is an item you don't have to spend a lot of money on but will get a lot of use out of.
Although I prefer my wooden cooking utensils more than my plastic utensils, there are lots of time the plastic cooking utensils come in handy. There are some great brands on the market including oxo utensils that are designed to fit better in your hand.
My advise is to put them in your hand and get a feel. See if they are comfortable. I own three or four vegetable peelers but only one of them really feels right. I am so much more productive with that peeler than any of the others. I just hope I never loose it.

There are lots of sources for purchasing quality Kitchen Gadgets and Housewares including whisks, spoons, measuring devices and all the fun gadgets we home cooks have come to love. I suggest you check out your local department stores and kitchen supply shops but if you're looking for a wide selection of products and prices, you may want to check out Amazon.com where I buy many of my favorite pieces of cookware.
Amazon.com - Kitchen Gadgets
