Finnish wood instead of plastic – an easy choice
One of the great questions in home cooking: should you choose a wooden kitchen utensil or a plastic one? When it comes to cutting boards, the answer is simple. Wooden cutting boards are slightly harder to clean, but that is where the downsides end. Statistics show, that wooden cutting boards are more hygienic (yes, wood does have some antibacterial attributes) and have a longer life, when maintained properly. Always wash your wooden cutting board from both sides by hand, never place your wooden cutting board in an electric dishwasher. The wooden board also keeps your knives sharp.
And of course Finnish wood is an eco-conscious choice. When you use wooden kitchen utensils, you are part of the greener future and consumer choices.
Be your own top chef in the kitchen with wooden utensils
Top chefs and cooks around the world praise wooden utensils. First of all, wooden utensils, such as spoons, spatulas and forks, don't scrape your pots and pans. They also don't omit any off tastes to the cooked dishes. Acidic dishes such as tomato sauces, mustard or vinaigrettes, react to metallic utensils, so you better use wooden utensils to stir these dishes. And same reasoning applies to avoiding plastic utensils: even though they might seem easier to clean, they also might scrape your pots and pans, they are definitely less environmentally friendly and they might be poorer in hygiene than your average wooden utensil.
The Jäskepuu selection of wooden kitchen utensils includes spatulas, spoons, forks, salad servers and butter knives, as well as many variable cutting boards, pot coasters and bread plates. Browse through our selection and find the most interesting wooden items to you.
