Wooden kitchen utensils have been the first choice in many kitchens for centuries. Wooden spoons are gentle on your pots and pans, don’t conduct heat and don’t alter the flavour of your food, while wooden cutting boards are durable and reliable. Overall, wooden kitchen utensils are the full package offering you durability and quality, all while adding beauty to your kitchen.  

Caring for your wooden kitchen utensils is extremely important, here’s why:

Wooden Utensils are Timeless

While there are many utensils on the market, wood has been the trusted material in cooking utensils for millennia. Caring for these trusted items ensures an age-old quality that benefits your cooking in so many different ways, from preserving your other cooking utensils like pots and knives, to enhancing the flavour of your food because it does not create a metallic flavour.

Prevents Build-Up of Germs and Bacteria

Regular cleaning of your wooden spoons and cutting boards ensures that there isn’t a build-up of germs and bacteria that can be harmful to your family. Wood is absorbent, which can lead to more bacteria growing, due to it being able to absorb liquids easier.

Prevents Cracking and Splitting

Wood, while durable, needs to be cared for to ensure its durability. Washing your wooden utensils by hand, and regularly sanding and oiling them can ensure that your spoons and boards won’t crack or split for years!

Be sure to catch the tips and tricks on how to care for your wooden spoons and cutting boards in our next article. In the meantime, feel free to browse for your next wooden utensil in our Kitchen Catalogue.
