Advantages of wooden kitchen utensils

Wood has been used in kitchens for centuries. During the 20th Century we saw the growth of products made from different materials, metals, plastics, composite. But we are now seeing a shift back to the use of natural woods and there are good reasons for this shift.

Wood utensils do not scratch your cookware. Especially with non-stick pots and pans, wood is much gentler than metal or plastic. They will leave your pots and pans undamaged.

Wood utensils are quieter. Metal on metal or plastic on metal can be noisy, especially with lots of stirring. Wood on metal has a softer gentler sound.

Wood does not conduct heat. Leave a metal spoon in a hot dish and when you pick the spoon back up you must be careful not to burn your fingers. A wooden spoon or spatula left in a hot dish does not conduct heat to the handle, you can safely pick it up.

Wood is safer. Wood is  non reactive and will not leach harmful chemicals into your food. Especially our Teak wooden utensils that have no chemical or lacquers, you cook in safety.

Wood is durable. Cared for properly your wooden utensils will last decades. They are great value and with their wonderful grains have a distinct aesthetic to enhance your kitchen.

Wooden spoons and spatulas with their natural curves are less likely to bruise or crush or tear delicate ingredients, in contrast to mass manufactured metal spoons with hard edges and angles.

We know if you are someone who loves to cook, loves food you will be using wooden kitchen utensils for many of your kitchen and cooking tasks. Out Teak wood utensils are carefully and lovingly crafted, with smooth natural finishes.
