I have managed to melt my spatula on numerous occasions while cooking. Is there any alternative out there to traditional rubber spatulas?

A Tip That'll Make You (But Not Your Spatula) Melt

Have you ever uttered the words, “oops, I melted the spatula?” It happens. Regular rubber spatulas do not tolerate heat well, and have been known to melt while performing tasks like stirring scrambled eggs or mixing chocolate sauce. Not so with the Le Creuset spatula, made from heat-resistant silicone. It can withstand temperatures of up to 800 degrees without staining or shrinking. As if that weren't amazing enough, it comes in the same brilliant array of colors as Le Creuset's enameled cast-iron cookware line.

I was skeptical about the spatula's but bought one to try, several years ago. Now I get them for every cook I know. Even if you accidentally leave them on a stove eye for a few moments, they won't melt. They might discolor on that spot, but it won't affect them otherwise. I LOVE this product! Careful with the handles tho. They're all wood. Do NOT put them in the dishwasher.
