Large, wide, metal spatulas are used in flipping or turning vegetables, meat, and/or poultry during cooking. Some of these also have offset handles. There are a variety of spatulas made of softer rubber or composite materials that are used for scraping bowls, folding ingredients, or spreading. High-heat silicone spatulas are used for stirring hot foods or making omelettes. Wooden spatulas are also used, particularly for making omelettes in nonstick, coated pans, stirring pâte à choux, stirring roasting bones for stock, deglazing pans, making roux, and stirring crème anglaise.
