Wusthof spatula - Meat yes, Cookies No
At close to $35, I expected this spatula to be the be all and end all. It was recommended by "Cooks Illustrated" further heightening my expectations.
It's a good spatula, and performs best when using it to lift large things like pieces of fish or chicken or beef.
It doesn't work so well getting warm cookies off baking sheets. I couldn't figure out why until I compared it with my no-name spatula and realized the openings were too wide, and weren't getting all the cookie off the tray, leaving bits behind, and holes in the bottom of the cookies.
So, buy it if you're using it for meat or fish. It's sturdy. For delicate things like cookies, use another thin spatula with less opening room (can't think of a better way to describe this space) on the surface of the spatula.
