'Give It a Rest' Bamboo Spoon
Our bamboo ‘Give it a Rest’ spoon is the ultimate answer to the question of where to put it. This bamboo oval-shaped spoon has a small patented bump (a unique characteristic of how bamboo grows) on its back that keeps the business end from touching the surface when set on counters and stoves. Each spoon is made from a single piece of USDA certified organic bamboo, hand-burnished to a naturally smooth finish.
Our ‘Give it a Rest’ spoon is a combination of a spoon rest and a kitchen spoon. This patented design elevates the spoon head off the counter, leaving your surfaces splotch-free.
