A flexible utensil scraper is one of the most useful articles I have in my kitchen. It covers such a large surface in scraping pans, kettles, etc., that this most disagreeable part of the kitchen work is quickly and easily accomplished.
Ill: The Blade is Flexible so It can Readily Shape Itself to the Curves of a Kettle
The flexible blade is attached to the tin handles with small rivets. The blade should be thin and narrow enough to allow it to bend. When the handles are pressed together, the blade curves to the shape of the utensil's surface. - Contributed by Mrs. Delia Schempp, Brodhead, Wis.
