The Perfect Kitchen Tool


What is this an sad object above?  Just my favorite kitchen utensil.  It wasn’t always like this, for the last 6 years it had half of its handle, and for the five years before that it had its whole handle!  Even after the first time its handle broke I couldn’t bring myself to throw it away.  Why is it my favorite?  It’s made of wood, so I don’t have to worry about melted plastic; it is thin allowing easy scooping action and the edge is angled for a nice ergonomic scrape.  I thought it was going to be hard to find a replacement.  Silly me.  There is a whole web site for just wooden utensils!  Here are the front runners to replace my baby.  Let me know if you have any favorites I should check out.  A read why wood is good in this blog on the Reluctant Gourmet here.

  1. Berard Olivewood has become my new favorite wooden cooking utensils. They come in many shapes and sizes as well as other kitchen items such as salt boxes and salt & pepper grinders. Plus, Olivewood is just beautiful.
