Agreed... Trying to find a brand to replace them. Any tips?

The most important tool is the million dollar tool, the "rubber spatula", waste is money.

I recently discovered this whisk, and it's become one of the most useful tools in my kitchen.

Good point, this would always be my pet peeve for new cooks in the kitchen.  They would not scrape out every last bit of a container.  Good thought, would have never came to mind.

I use it for roux mostly, but it also comes in handy for small amounts of pan sauces.

I suppose that my Japanese knives would probably be at the top of the list, but my 12" Edlund tongs would be hard to live without.  Try them and you'll never go back to the generic Chinese/Indian crap again.

Much appreciated.
