I'm looking for a new rubber spatula to replace one I currently have. This is a smaller, narrow scraper for those narrow openings in jars, etc. The scraper part on the one I have is removable, and of course it often gets stuck in a jar, creating a mess and frustration. Any suggestions or favorites, anyone?

Verlee,I like to go to Target,Bed Bath and Beyond,or if you have a restaurant supply company near by there. At one of these places you should find the type that you are looking for.I prefer the silicone type things don't stick and they can be used at temperatures 400* plus.

I must have at least a dozen scrapers -- can't mix without them.  They are all different sorts, prices, brands.  Since Rubbermaid quit making the good ones, I haven't found one that I want.  They all are so SOFT.
When I find a GOOD one I'm going to buy a new dozen and toss the old.

I also use the silicone scrapers. I love the fact that they are good with high temperatures since I have on previous occasions melted my non-silicone scrapers.

I like the wooden handles too.  But my spatulas never seem to last very long.  I am not sure why.  But I hate to spend a lot of money on one, so that could be part of the problem.

I like the silicone ones as well.
I like the ones where you can remove the scraper from the handle so the whole thing can be washed easily.  So much gunk can get trapped between the scraper and handle. If the handle does not come off make sure that it fits tightly so stuff can not work it's way between handle and scraper.
If you use dish washer be careful of wood handles the dish washer will dry out the wood.

Check the temperature rating on the package some can with stand much higher temps than others.
If you have a Sam's Club or Costco both have food service items that are used in restaurants they will have a higher temperature rating.  Restaurant supply houses are also a good place, some you need a tax number others will allow anyone to shop there may be a different price for an "outsider" though.
Wallmart does have some good choices as well.  Bed Bath and Beyond also and you can use a 20% off coupon..doesn't everyone have a shoe box or zip top bag filled with them?  I mean really they never expire!

I am a bit tardy in thanking everyone for their great advice on spatulas! This has helped tremendously.

I like the silicone ones also.  I use the big semi-spoon shaped one for mixing brownies, muffins etc.  It mixes and then scrapes out all the batter.  I also have a narrow one for use in small places.  "These have aluminum handles i think and the silicone is quite heavy and not soft.  I bet Nancy would like these.  I do have a couple old rubbermaid ones with the wood handles.  That used to be all I used, but one winter I had mice who loved to chew on rubbermaid.  There were little tooth marks all around the edges.

I like the ones that Avon sells. They come in three sizes and
they don't stain.

Sara S, I didn't know Avon sold spatulas. My neighbor sells Avon, so I'll have to ask her about them.

No one has mentioned  William Sonoma.  They have some with really sturdy handles. ( a must for me) and they come in cool colors sometimes.

About seven years ago Aldi's had silicone scrapers /spatulas in  the store that  were safe up to 500 degrees' They are heavy and the handle comes out for cleaning.
The Christmas Tree Shoppe sales a variety of heavy colors and styles  at reasonable prices.
