I use small ones from the dollar store. I've busted every wooden spoon I have ever owned so have gone to the small cheap disposable ones.

Wood is surprisingly hygienic. It has natural anti-biotic properties. I doubt bamboo has these properties, since it is a grass, and not wood.

Love my bamboo spoons! I find that they tend to be more dense than regular wooden spoons, which doesn't allow as much moisture to be absorbed. They don't deteriorate as quickly and are really easy to clean! I still use my "old" wooden spoons. But often wonder how "hygenic" they are.

I love wooden spoons and always look for bamboo or olive wood in all shapes and sizes. One of my favorite tools in the kitchen that I just cannot live without.

My favorite is a wooden spoon with a corner and a hole in the middle. Sounds wierd but the corner allows you to stop stuff getting settled in the corner of the base of the pan while the hole in the middle allows stirring without creating a wave. All that technology from a lowly wooden spoon.

I have one like that too. It's not my favourite, but I do like it.

Mine is one that used to be my grans, my food always taste good when I use this spoon. Possibly because it still has some of the dinners Gran made on it lol! I know it's old but I can't get myself to throw it away!

Shape-wise, I like the one with the flat blade best. I like to use it when browning ground meats or making oatmeal to keep things from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Similar to these...
mostly i use the flat blade one as well. works on anything i need a wooden spoon for.
