I received a 6 piece Bamboo Kitchen Utensil set from Bamboo Styles, which included 3 spoons and 3 spatulas.
Why choose bamboo? They are easy to clean, super durable, and are a sustainable material. Plus pandas love them.
The first thing I did when my package arrived was to wash my new bamboo utensils in soapy water. So easy to clean. You don’t have to do anything fancy, just don’t leave them soaking for hours or put them in the dishwasher. And they are so durable. I have put these bamboo utensils through the ringer. As in mixing thick batter by hand. My arm was sore, but the bamboo spoon I was using held up where lesser spoons would have bent. I was actually surprised to learn that bamboo is stronger than maple and actually lighter than oak. And bamboo is renewable. A major plus.
Here are a few things I’ve done with my bamboo utensils:
- cooked in non-stick cookware
- mixed batter
- stirred pasta (the trick you’ve seen on pinterest with the spoon over the pan keeping the water from over boiling really does work)
- served rice
- made scrambled eggs (the flat edged spatula)
- removed poached eggs from water (the egg didn’t stick to the bamboo spoon at all, such an easy clean up)
- browned meat
I feel a little silly fawning over some kitchen utensils, but the truth is that it is exciting to find a product that really performs that way it says it will and will last. Although I’ve only been using these bamboo utensils for a few weeks I can see using them for years to come.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
