This is also why I like deglazing pans. Nothing goes to waste! And then, of course, I scrape out all the saucy goodness onto whatever I cooked.
I'm pretty sure I own at least a half dozen rubber spatulas. You can never have too many! I even have a special rigid plastic scraper for the ice cream maker.
John, Martha Stewart's baking guy; he's a scraper, too. Maybe I could bake with him.
