Benefits of Wooden Kitchen Utensils
There’s a reason that wooden kitchen utensils are still found in just about any kitchen, as there are numerous benefits to having wooden tools that go beyond the environmental benefits. Don’t get distracted by all the fancy new kitchen gadgets made from alternative materials. When it comes to a green and efficient kitchen, all you need is a few wooden utensils.
Wood Is Naturally Anti-Bacterial
Many people worry that wood is too absorbent and will quickly become filled with bacteria. However, wood is a naturally anti-bacterial material. Although it technically isn’t still alive, it is still filled with cells that protect the wood from bacteria. And, most wooden utensils will have been treated with oils and minerals that will prevent the buildup of bacteria and mold.
Wood Won’t Scratch
When you use wooden utensils, you won’t scratch or damage your pots and pans like their metal counterparts. Plus, accidentally leaving a wooden spoon next to the hot pan won’t cause it to melt, like plastic.
Wood Is Heat Resistant
You can freely leave your spoon resting in the pot and go about doing other business. Unlike a metal utensil, you can come back and grab your spoon anytime without burning your hand. Not only does wood not heat up in the pot, but the wood won’t mess with the look and the flavor of the food that you’re cooking. Some acidic foods will react poorly with some materials, like iron and non-stainless steel.
