Advantages: Cheap, handy and a thick strudy quality
Disadvantages: None really!
The one thing I always have in my kitchen is a wooden spoon, in fact I have quite a big collection of them. Being wooden though I do find that they stain terribly and so I always buy reasonably cheap ones that feel and look good quality......who wants splinters and foreign bodies (unless they're Antonio Bandaras ones lol) in their food I say.
This one I found a couple of months back in my local Wilkinsons store. The spoon measures in length 30cm so its quite long with a slim handle, all one piece of wood and with a not too deep spoon shape to the bottom of it, in fact that is rather shallow. Its made from light wood which is beech and has a slight wax polish to it to protect it from wearing too fast or getting too stained and is smooth..
This is suitable for hand washing though a far as I can see not suitable for dishawashing probably due to the waxy finish it has, obviously to keep it from staining.
I use this spoon only for mixing and not for cooking as such with. I like to make cakes with it and things like that which means minimal staining for me however if you use this on dark mixtures it is going to get stained which is why I don't....it is wooden after all!
This serves me very well indeed and is very worth the 37p I paid for it though I can see signs of wear now and the wax finish wearing thin which means I will soon have to replace it, not that I mind though for the 37p they cost and they do last a fair while!
A kitchen must have in my opinion you can't beat stirring it with a wooden spoon!
Only available from Wilkinsons or from wilkinsonsplus.com.
Summary: A must have!
