Utensil for Le Creuset frying pan?

Yesterday I treated myself to a Le Creuset frying pan, half price in a clearance sale. Pic of a similar one hopefully attached (mine is a lovely bright yellow).

It's black inside but the black is enamel, not non-stick coating. I was a bit disappointed to read after I got it home that metal utensils are not recommended because I swear by my lovely thin metal fish slice. Silicone ones I find floppy and usually too thick to get under food like seared fish or meat cleanly enough.

Does anyone have any tips either on a good silicone slotted turner or have you been OK using metal on a similar pan?

I have the wok and the griddle pan I am very precious about the wok but it's never occurred to me to worry about the griddle. I think it means not to cut stuff up/ jab knives in a thin fish slice to flip or serve should be fine.

I use a wooden one. Absolutely ancient, so I can't link to anything sorry!

We use silicone tongs for most things or an old plastic flat spatula (Tefal). Also have a really old wooden handled plastic spatula. I'm really precious as well about not using metal in the Le Creuset.
