I went shopping today in Canada's capital and stopped by a store called The Zone. While I was there I looked at various wooden kitchenware tools and made the decision switch out all my plastic cookware for wooden cookware. I found that all the plastic junk I bought over the years had started to deteriorate and taint the food I was cooking with little bits of plastic.
My first big purchase was a nice big wooden cutting board from a company called Core
. The board is made of sustainable bamboo and is extremely study. I prefer buying bamboo over other hardwood any day because of deforestation.
I also bought some Caron & Doucet products to help maintain the wood. These products are also 100% natural unlike the petroleum found in mineral oil.
It was well worth the investment. The board is nice and heavy and makes my chopping so much better. In addition, the cutting board oil and wax smell awesome!
Have you made the decision yet to steer away from plastic in the kitchen?
