I know this might be a question for the kitchen forum, but I thought more people might see it in Community Chat.

 

I ordered the set of mini-Spurtles in the gray color, but I wondered if they would stain if used to stir spaghetti sauce? I have the larger silicone Spurtles in red, but ordered the gray as two sets will be gifts and I thought it would be a nice neutral color.

 

Thanks in advance.😊

Re: Spurtles....Do they stain?

I have not had any problems with mine. Silicone is suppose to be non-porous.

I bought a wooden set on Amazon, they are swirly dye and they have not stained

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

I have had my wooden ones  for 3 yrs no staining at all.  Not even with pasta sauce

Several full size silicone ones here.  Never ever a stain.  All merry neon colors.

Nope, no staining on the silicone set I bought. The silicone did peel off on 1 of them. That was my fault though, as I have a bad habit; I bang the spurtle on the edge of the pan and I damaged it. I may try the wooden ones as I love the spurtle design.

I have the multi-color silicone set and have had no staining on any of them. I hand wash them shortly after I use them, and everything, including grease and tomato based sauces wash right off. Wouldn't be without them!

Re: Spurtles....Do they stain?

I have a wooden spurtle that I have had for a couple of years and it has not stained.  I have used it for many pasta sauces and it hasn't stained it yet.

Re: Spurtles....Do they stain?

I have the wooden set too.  I use them all the time for stirring everything and have never had a staining problem.
