Mercer Culinary has added silicone blade scrapers and spoon spatulas to its Hell’s Tools line.
Designed to be durable, the silicone scrapers and spoon spatulas feature heat-defying characteristics, formulated to withstand temperatures of up to 260°C.
The silicone blade scrapers are suitable for scraping batter, preparing omelettes, mixing, or spreading icing, and come in three sizes: 10”, 14” and 16”.
The silicone blade spoon spatulas can transfer batter and other thick liquids as well as mixing and scraping the sides of bowls. They come in 10.3”, 14.3” and 16.3” sizes.
The scrapers feature a specially formulated nylon handle for strength and temperature resistance, a raised kickstand to keep the blade off work surfaces when not in use and an integral hook on the handle to prevent the scraper from sliding into bowls, pots and pans.
Flexible silicone blades should eliminate food waste by creating contact with the sides of pots, pans and bowls without scratching. The blades are securely moulded to the handles to avoid separation during use and eliminating a food and dirt trap.
NSF certified, all scrapers are designed to be dishwasher safe, easy to store, and stain and odour resistant.
Joe Flaherty, senior vice president, said: “Although these aren’t new products to the industry, what makes them stand out from the competition is the unique design which incorporates all the features from other models into one quality product, while offering them at a significantly lower price point. This is a win, win for foodservice professionals.”
The Mercer Culinary brand is available in the UK through Pro Foodservice Reps.
