Despite all the bright-colored, high-tech silicone kitchen utensils out these days, theres nothing quite like the good old-fashioned feel of wood for cooking needs. Crafted from solid beech wood, this strong 12-1/2-inch spoon is ideal for stirring thick stews or mixing oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough. A natural oil finish protects the wooden spoon without contaminating food, and the give of wood means the spoon is safe for nonstick cookware.
True to OXOs creed of designing products that are easy to use for the widest range of users, the handle, which is flat on top and sensuously curved underneath, comfortably fits the hand. A hole in the end allows the spoon to hang where its most needed. Set in a crock, the spoon forms a handsome bouquet with OXOs other wooden utensils, such as a larger spoon, slotted spoons, a pancake turner, and a spaghetti server. Wooden utensils are best washed by hand. OXO backs all its products with a satisfaction warranty, and will replace or refund any returned item. --Ann Bieri
