One of my friends, Laura, wanted to learn to make some almond toffee. I was teaching her and as we talked over the phone and we thought everything was going well. Then---she started to describe how her plastic spoon was melting into it--OH NO. We had to start over.
I use bamboo and wood for everything. I use wood and bamboo because of my non-stick pans. Just a habit.

Good habit. Prevents molten plastic in almond toffee.
