Silicone Cooking Tool Set for Nonstick Utensils

I have seen numerous people misuse their nonstick pots and pans.  I have seen some pans in which nonstick coating has been scratched and washed with abrasive cleaners so badly that the pan has started to look like aluminum.  Firstly, you're not supposed to use stainless steel cooking spoons and scratch the whole nonstick layer of a pan.  Secondly, I have seen several people use wooden cooking spoons or nylon ones (the kinds that feel like plastic).   Wooden spoons are fine to use in nonstick pots and pans as long as you are not stirring rigorously and destroying the nonstick coating.  Nylon are okay but when you fry with it on high heat they tend to develop bubbles or have indentation wherever it touches high heat (or also if you leave it touching the edge of pan).

I have had this 5-piece silicone cooking utentil set for over 5 months and I LOVE it.  No major turmeric stains so far (considering how we cook Indian food twice a day).  It is BPA-free and is resistant to high heat cooking.  

As you can see, the color of this set in real is not as fluorescent as in the picture in the product link.  The 5-piece set has 1 soup ladle, 1 slotted turner, 1 mixing spoon, 1 spatula and 1 spoonula.  Spoonula is a hybrid of spoon (curved for mixing and serving) + spatula (flexible for scraping and folding).  I use these cooking spoons in my nonstick, stainless steel, and hard-anodized pans too, and I also like how it is easy to clean. There are some 10-piece silicone kitchen utensil sets too that have a spaghetti spoon/pasta server, tongs, a slotted spoon, and a draining spoon (with holes for frying), etc but I barely use all those tools, so a 5-piece was sufficient for me.

Not that I am encouraging the use of nonstick pans.  No.  Nonstick is unhealthy and stainless steel pans, clay pots, or cast iron utensils to cook in are much better options.  But if you have a family that does use nonstick pans and if you are in US and if you want to take a useful kitchen item for family back home, please, PLEASE give them this silicone utensil set!  No destruction of nonstick coating hence reduced health risk and less expenditure on new nonstick pans.

This is the silicone cooking tool set I have and am talking about --> but there are many other options to choose from per your needs.
