Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $3.95


An indispensable camp kitchen clean up utensil. This scraper reduces clean-up time and helps protect non-stick coatings on expensive cookware.


  • Effective
  • Helps prolong the life of non-stick coatings
  • Less water needed for clean up


  • None. It does what it was designed for.


Its hard to get excited over a utensil that scrapes food remnants from cookware but, this tool works great. It has two sides that can be used to remove excess and stubborn baked on food.

One side is a pliable rubber that easily gets into tight radius pot corners to get the scraps out quickly. The other side is harder and made of a nylon composite that allows you to put some muscle into removing that burnt, baked on residue from dinner.



Using the scraper instead of an abrasive pad/sponge helps maintain the non-stick coating on my cookware by not scratching it and rubbing it off. Also, removing as much of the food particles as I can with the scraper helps keep the sponge from collecting food particles and eventually stinking.  I also use less water for clean up by removing the excess food particles first. 

Overall, this a simple and extremely useful tool that is indispensable for camp kitchen clean up.
