Will the polycarbonate utensil set withstand the heat while cooking?

Best Answer Responded on

Any prolonged exposure to direct heat (bottom of the pan) would cause this (or any) plastic to melt. However, when cooking you are probably just pushing or stirring the food around. So just don't leave the utensils sit in whatever you are cooking and you'll be fine.

Don't use the fork to turn bacon. I melted the tines on my fork this week. The spoon has done fine stirring coffee and meals but I imagine bacon grease can run up to 400+ degrees in the pan.
