Best spatulas for baking and more
A spatula is a kitchen essential you'll reach for constantly whether baking or cooking – we've found the best spatulas you need to keep in your drawer
From folding cake mixture to stirring caramelised onions, a sturdy spatula is a workhorse of the kitchen. Used constantly in baking to efficiently get every last drop of batter out of a bowl, you'll find yourself reaching for it every day.
When you'll be using a tool so often, it's worth buying the best. Silicone spatulas have a flexible spoon, making them great for scraping bowls clean of cookie dough, meringue or cake mixture. Heatproof silicone means you can also use it when cooking, and often are a great option for using on non-stick surfaces for being much more gentle on the surface than metal spoons.
Shapes and sizes of spatulas can also vary: narrow spatulas are great for reaching into jars and a long-handled spatula will stop your hand getting messy when reaching into blenders or jugs. Some will come as sets of different sizes, which is handy when one's in the dishwasher, or as complete utensil sets with pastry brushes and pancake flippers.
Read on to find our selection of the best kitchen spatulas, from bargain buys to full sets, all under £15, to find the best one for you.
