Not really, go to your local department store, Kmart, Walmart, whatever, and look in the kitchen stuff. You can usually find a set of wooden cooking utensils. I like to put the whole collection in a bamboo holder where they are available.

Use them. They will season in and become some of your favorite tools.

If you can get the selection of wooden tools, you'll find that the flat blade scraper will become a favorite to use.

First of all Howdy and welcome to DC.

Truthfully my favorite wooden spoon was the one that mysteriously disappeared from my mom's kitchen when I was youngster. After that it wasn't involved in more high speed collisions with my backside.

I found this set on sale for $8.

.40

I get my 'favorite' wooden spoons from the 99 cent store. They work as well as any designer $10 wooden spoons.

The set .40 linked are nice. I prefer those with a hefty handle over the pencil thin spoons you get in the supermarket. I have found bamboo a great material for cooking utensils.

Welcome to the forum!!

I mostly use silicone lately but I do have some trustly old wooden cooking utensils. I have a skinny spat that I use to get in and scrape out cans, a wide spat for saute' and multi tasks. Wood is wood no real #1 brand. just make sure it is heavy and thick in the handle and body. The thin ones warp and snap easy.

I like the wooden ladle below as it hooks onto pots but it was pricey and I don't use it often because I don't wanna break it. It looks so pretty and like I said pricey! I got a Rachel Ray set of the hook on pots type a 2 pack with a silicon spoon and ladle that I use the most often for cooking and 2 silicone spats.

I really like my bamboo cutting boards. I've had them about a year and they are holding up very well.

My favorite is my Cypress Roux spoon....Just a long handle, wide flat blade spoon.

I pick them up here and there....Sometimes an inexpensive set that I consider disposable...Use them a while and toss them in the camp fire.

ROTFL!! It's amazing how those things could go around corners when thrown just right!! Like they had GPS location years before cars!!

When my mom moved she sold the fridge and found all her fav throwing tools behind it!! I didn't have enough nerve to actually remove them from the house.
