Everybody hates scraping pans, I have even on time or two had to use scouring pads which ended up scraping and scratching the coating off the pan. I was tired of that happening so I bought a couple of these Pampered Chef Nylon pan scrapers, and they solved my problem. With the aid of a little hot water, these do a great job of getting the baked on food off the pans. They are easy to grip and keep a hold of, and make cleaning the pans and pots much easier. I have had mine for over a year and they have held up very well and believe me they get used often. The scrapers are easy to clean. You can run them through the dishwasher but they are easy to hand wash as well. A little sp and water and they clean up fairly quickly. The design is pretty simple, but the way they are designed makes them esdu to use and hold. Ease of Cleaning Very easy to clean, Durability I have had mine over a year and they have held up very well.
