When choosing a kitchen spoon, there are tons of options. From wood to plastic to metal and yes, even bamboo. If you’re interested in an eco- and economic choice, bamboo will be your best bet. Upgrade your wooden spoon that’s splintering and stained, and read more to see why a bamboo spoon, or two, or three, is meant for you.
First of all, I am you. I was looking for this exact product for my new kitchen. I found myself reading an article that was basically selling me an over-priced wooden spoon for $25 and looked to the comments for the real answer. Bamboo was mentioned, spoons that are sold in sets, and many many comments recommended cheaper options. I didn’t want the super cheap option, but I already knew bamboo spoons are really affordable. So after it is all said and done, yes I have a bambu® spoon set now.
So I’m telling the world, there’s another way! No need to buy an expensive wooden spoon or worst yet a plastic one. Don't get me started on plastic. I'm getting rid of plastic from my kitchen! So, try bamboo instead. A kitchen spoon is a cooking essential that is best for one thing: stirring. But, it's even better when it can do more, like scraping and serving.
Bamboo kitchen spoons are made of a renewable resource, making them not only eco-friendly but affordable. Bamboo is a natural material that grows rapidly and doesn't need to be replanted, so it also grows back quickly. More quickly than new growth trees.
bambu® is the only brand that offers spoons and bamboo cooking utensils made wild crops that are certified organic, and the whole process is certified organic too.
Benefits of Bamboo Spoons:
- Don’t scratch pots and pans
- Naturally odor and stain resistant
bambu® spoons are also dishwasher safe because they do not contain any glue or lacquer coating. If you’re all about dishwashing, use bamboo finishing oil on a regular basis to maintain the finish on your bamboo spoons.
