Caring for Wooden Spoons
by Jason Weymouth
Once again, I am faced with the chore of caring for my kitchen woodenware. It has been several months and my wooden spoons are showing some signs of “fuzziness” and cooking oil discoloration. If you find yourself in this predicament then learn from me on how I care for my little fuzzy friends.
This is a short article on how I bring back the durable lasting shine to my wooden spoons. We all know that cooking with a wood spoon or spatula is a good thing because of the woods natural antibacterial properties. So, why then is it important to care for your kitchen woodenware? Well, the answer is clear...to keep those antibacterial properties working and keeping that nice wood spoon looking fresh while you cook. There’s nothing more unattractive then cooking with a blackened-greenish spoon floating or mixing in your nice sauces and soups.
Unfortunately, wooden utensils quickly lose their attractive finish and are prone to small cracks, and large ones, if washed in a dishwasher. The dishwasher is known as the dreaded "spoon killer" and the final execution for most wooden spoons. Here’s a few quick steps you can take to help return that beloved wood spoon back to it’s original shine and clean bright look.
