Silicone utensils are becoming more and more sought after these days. With non-stick surfaces becoming more popular the need for silicone utensils has never been greater. Some non-stick cookware can be expensive but the non-stick surface can easily be damaged with steel utensils. To keep those non-stick surfaces working for a long time you really need to be using good silicone utensils on your cookware. So of course if you have splashed out a lot of money on your cookware the last thing you want to do is have poor quality tools so premium and luxury silicone utensils are a must. So let us look at some of the best sets currently available.
First up is this beautiful set from Miusco. As you can see from the image the handles are wooden which gives them a luxury look and feel. It’s not just any wood though, this is Acacia wood which is extremely high grade and perfect for cooking utensils. Not only is it incredibly hard wearing but it is a natural antibacterial material. Acacia wood can last for 40 years or more if treated with care.
The silicone is rated to 240 degree Celsius or 464 degrees Fahrenheit which is more than enough for most cooking situations.
These need to be hand washed because of the wood handles, you shouldn’t put them in the dishwasher. This might put some people off as handwashing is another job you just don’t need but chances are you will have to handwash your nonstick cookware anyway. The other downside of these tools is that the silicone is quite soft meaning they are not ideal for serving food.
The first thing to say about these is that they are strong. Usually, when the whole body is silicone the utensils can be susceptible to snapping but these have steel reinforced handles so there is no chance of that happening. How many spatulas come with a lifetime warranty! That should tell you everything you need to know about these. Durable and built to last.
These are also BPA Free and FDA approved and rated to 600°F.
These are perfect for all types of cooking and are a professional standard set. They come in red and black. You can also buy these individually if you don’t want the whole set.
Looking for something that stands out from the crowd? Then how about these stunning utensils. The handles are made from a high-grade stainless steel which is Rose Gold in color. All the materials on this set are FDA grade and BPA free.
This is an all in one set meaning you get pretty much every tool you will ever need when it comes to cooking utensils. The set includes Silicone Spatula, Deep Ladle, Spaghetti Spoon, Serving Spoon, Slotted Spoon, Basting brush, Turner Slotted, Solid Kitchen Turner, Solid Serving Spoon and even a Stainless Steel Holder to keep them all in.
Made from the latest silicone developments these tools are nonstick as well as non-toxic. This is a great looking set and definitely worth considering, especially when you get so much for your money.
This is another really durable set and similar to the DI ORO set mentioned above. These also have a steel core handle so are incredibly well made. Again these are premium materials with the best nonstick and non-toxic silicone. 100% BPA free food grade silicone and FDA approved once again.
You get a lot for your money here, including Turner, Slotted spoon, Ladle, Spoon, Spoon Spatula, Spooula, Spatula and a Basting brush.
The handles are made with a non-slip finish so they are easy to use even with wet hands. These only come in red so if you are looking for something of another color then you may need to look elsewhere. The only other thing that puts us off these is that they have TTLIFE emblazoned on the handle. Not a deal breaker but it does spoil the aesthetics a bit. Still it’s a high quality set at a very good price.
Last on our list but by no means least is this colorful set from Yum Yum. A very durable set and although no steel core here they claim to be more durable than steel cored sets by using nylon instead.
The FDA Approved and BPA Free Silicone is Perfect for your Non-Stick Pans and as they are one piece tools there is nowhere for dirt and germs to hide.
We love the super colorful design but admittedly this won’t be to everyone’s taste and they won’t look right in every kitchen. This is a very highly rated set by reviewers and they have been a very popular seller.
Just a shame they don’t come in a few color options so that people with specific color needs can enjoy them as well.
Really this comes down to personal choice. All the items above are of a high quality and will serve you well. However, there are a couple of things to consider. A couple of the sets above are made with 2 materials, while this looks appealing this join can be an issue for some people as it is a place that germs could linger. It is unlikely that this would happen if you look after your utensils properly but of course this is not an issue for the one material sets. This join is also a potential weakness in the design and arguably they won’t last as long. We really are nitpicking here though as all of the above are really durable and will last a long time.
If we had to choose one set then it is hard to look past the DI ORO set at number 2 on this list. An incredibly popular item that has sold in huge volumes. It continues to be a customer favorite and is a professional level set.
Let us know in the comments which set you decided to go for.
