RIP Rubbermaid Scrapers

mamaciita | May 18, 2007 03:51 PM

I've been looking for the past few months--with no success--for Rubbermaid brand rubber scrapers. The old-fashioned kind. Some of them had plastic handles; some of them had wooden handles. They often fell apart, but I just smooshed them back together.

I do not like the new generation, silicone, heat-resistant scrapers that are on the market. Most of them are too thick at the edge, and the ones which are thinner are either too floppy or way too stiff to do a good job of really scraping the dredges out of a bowl of cake batter or guacamole or whipped cream.

Am I alone? Am I the only one who misses the old, meltable scrapers? Surely other people get a kick out of squeegeeing the last bit of goo out of mixing bowls and jars. . . right?

If anyone knows where I can get the old ones, I'd love to know. And if anyone knows of a new variety that functions as well as the old, please. . .help me out.


I'll have to go HERE.
