Wooden utensils have long been a favorite of those who enjoy cooking. For stainless steel and nonstick cookware, wooden utensils are a better option instead of metal, to prevent scratches and ruining pots. But beyond that, they are also more sustainable since wood is biodegradable so their environmental impact is definitely lower.
As fans of wooden utensils, we will be reviewing a few of our favorites in this blog post.
Wooden spoons are definitely a must-have. They are preferred by many because of their versatility. They don’t transfer heat as much as metal spoons, which makes them a great option for many meals.
At LOCALWE we carry a range of wooden spoons.
These medium wooden spoons are great for preparing and serving big meals at family dinners and social gatherings, cooking up a big pot of soup or cooking down the summer's harvest of berries for jam. They also make a lovely gift for your favorite chef and a charming piece of kitchen decor.
Short wooden serving spoons are wonderful for serving mashed potatoes, oatmeal, and even for spooning fresh berries over your favorite flavor of homemade ice cream.
Wooden spatulas are another versatile wooden utensil that comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can be used for stirring, scraping, flipping, and more. Our handmade Wood Square Edged Spatula makes a perfect roux spoon and even a perfect spreader for cake frosting!
Rolling pins are another kitchen staple, and the wooden versions that we carry are handmade and perfect gift items for newlyweds or the avid baker. They’re sturdy enough to last for generations which makes them great family heirlooms.
The curved profile of our handmade French Rolling Pin makes it easier to roll out a pie crust, pastry, or even cookies. This style of rolling pin was featured on Julia Child's cooking shows for 50 years and the shape pushes the dough outward for a uniform thickness. Another option, our Traditional Rolling Pin is a solid one-piece design crafted from Cherry (Medium) or Black Walnut (Dark).
To extend the life of your wooden utensils it is important to hand wash them, making sure not to soak them in water and oil them occasionally.
