Why Some People Prefer Wood

A wooden cooking utensil is more gentle on Teflon coated pots and pans compared to metal and sometimes plastic utensils. There is potential danger when one uses a scarred Teflon pot or pan. It is not only for Teflon coated surfaces but wood is ultimately gentle on plastic surfaces and ceramic ones. Another good reason for using a wooden cooking utensil is that it can last longer than other cooking utensils. Wood is also low maintenance in the sense that sanding and oiling are just what it needs to bring out its beauty.

The presence of germs and bacteria in most cookware surfaces is also another reason why people prefer to use a wooden cooking utensil. Wood discourages the presence of germs and bacteria which is why many people like the idea of reduced number of germs in the utensil. Other people prefer wooden utensils for their beauty and uniqueness. Most wooden cooking utensils are made from the kinds of wood that last longer and can stand being exposed to heat and water.

Care For Wooden Cooking Utensils

Your wooden cooking utensil is easy to care for. You can expect most wooden utensils to appear hairy after the initial washing. The so called hairs or fibers will eventually disappear after the consecutive washes. If you wish them to disappear immediately, scrub the wood gently with a lightly abrasive washing cloth or scotch brite. To maintain the appearance of most wooden cooking utensils, rub edible oil lightly every few months. You can also sand off some burnt areas to even out its color.
