Note to self: Do not use the plastic spatula to ease the newly baked load out of the tin. The end goes all melty! Use the wooden one instead.

Yikes!

Thankfully it was not a major disaster. The spatula was a cheap one and anyway, with the end trimmed, it's OK again. To be on the safe side, I am trimming off the outermost crust on the sides and ends of the loaf, just in case any plastic transferred, but otherwise the bread was fine.

Next time, I'll stick to wood!

oh yes, that's so annoying!

Hope the bread was good otherwise.

Spatulae(?)

The supplier of brownies (aka my partner) swears by silicone for spatulas. :)

Re: Spatulae(?)

I think I have a silicone one, but it's rather thick. The cheapo one was thinner, but not heat proof! Next time I'll use the wooden spatula.

also - don't pour hot simple syrup into a plastic bottle
some of them melt

I think I made that mistake once with hot oil. Same problem!

A propos of melting plastic... When your best beloved puts a plastic tray on the stove-top without realising there's a gas burner been left on low do not try to put out the resulting fire with water. It essentially (now) an oil-fire. (Luckily I was standing well to the side when the resulting fireball exploded on to the kitchen ceiling.)
