Eggs turn to glue on spatula

Posted by jaxo (My Page) on

I have a silicone spatula and a plastic spatula and when I use them for scrambled eggs, the egg dries on and doesn't come off during the dishwasher cycle. They need to be scrubbed by hand and it is getting annoying. The eggs don't stick to the skillet, so I don't know why it has to stick to the spatula.
Are there any dishwasher-safe spatulas that food like eggs will not to stick to so strongly that it doesn't dissolve and wash off in a dishwasher?

I'm sure it's due to the chemical make-up of eggs-oil and protein. I have the exact same problem. I'll run my spatula thru the dishwasher twice or scrub it first with a Brillo or SOS pad.

I've had some success with spraying spatula with PAM before using on eggs.

Egg is the one thing that I have to prewash, my dishwasher isn't good at removing egg. The idea of using a cooking spray on the spatula is a good one, I'm going to try that.
