5 Favorites: Wooden Measuring Spoons

Issue 96 · The Urban Kitchen · November 1, 2013

Maybe it's the way wood feels to touch or how it develops a patina over time, but there's no denying the appeal of a wooden spoon. I stir pasta sauces and mix cookie doughs with wooden spoons. Why not use wooden spoons to measure salt, baking soda, and spices? Of late, several workshops seem to thinking along these lines. Here, a round-up of wooden measuring spoons.
