When building your dining collection, we always recommend mi and matching materials for dinnerware, flatware, and serveware to create a beautiful, textured table. One of our favorite materials for the dining room and kitchen? Wood, of course. We love it as an earthy, minimalist element as well as and its many technical advantages. Wooden cooking utensils are durable, don't show scratches easily and are delicate on non-stick pans. Wood is non-reactive, so you don’t need to worry about leaving a metallic taste that steel kitchen tools can sometimes cause. Wood utensils are also don’t conduct heat, so you can leave a spoon in a slow cooking sauce and the wooden handle will never be hot to the touch. Though they may not be as easy to clean as silicone utensils, if you care for them correctly, wood tools have a naturally elegant look that will last for years.
