The OXO Good Grips Nylon Slotted Spoon is a handy utensil to have in the kitchen. It is heat resistant up to 400 degrees so it can safely sit on the stove top or in a pan while food is cooking. The material is delicate enough to take a poached egg from the liquid without breaking the yolk. This spoon also works well for removing steamed vegetables from a pan as well as soup bones from a pot safely. The design is simple so these spoons easily work as serving utensils. Having several on-hand for gatherings ensures that your serving utensils match. It also helps to identify which items are yours at pot luck events. Cleaning the nylon is simple as dried on food wipes easily and can be put in the dishwasher.
