Sustainable kitchen utensils for cooking and baking

Sustainable and environmentally conscious cooking is not only a question of ingredients, but also of equipment. Cooking utensils are the variety of practical utensils needed in the kitchen for preparing food. These include meat fork, meat tenderiser, BBQ cutlery, potato masher, cooking utensils sets, cooking spoons, cake slice, tongs, spatula, dough scraper, slotted spoon, whisk, serving spoon and ladle. Each of these kitchen gadgets reliably fulfils its intended tasks in baking and cooking.

Cooking spoons have been designed for optimal performance. Standard cooking spoons are intended for mixing and stirring all kinds of food. The pointed spoon with a hole for getting right into pan edges and maximising turbulence when stirring dough, soups and sauce.

A spatula makes it easier to turn the food in the pan to brown it evenly on both sides. By the way, the spatula can be used as a cake server if necessary. A soup ladle and scoop are suitable for pouring the soup, oil, and cans, something like hot and cold liquids.

If you cook a lot and regularly, you will need not only the basic equipment (cooking spoon, spatula and ladle) but also a whisk and potato masher, a tong and a meat fork (which can of course also be used for vegetables).

In addition to their practical properties, kitchenware must be hygienic. Sustainable materials such as stainless steel, wood (beech wood, cherry, olive wood, bamboo) and bioplastics meet this requirement in particular.

What is the best material for cooking utensils?

If you are looking for high-quality cooking utensils, you can choose between sustainable materials such as stainless steel, bamboo, bioplastics and wood. But which material is best for cooking and baking? There are different opinions about this. Some believe that germs could settle more easily on wood than on other materials.

By the way, if stainless steel and also silicone are homogeneous, the cooking utensils can be recycled at the end of their use. In this way, raw materials are recovered and reused for new products.

Advantages of wooden Cooking Utensils

Cooking utensils made of beech wood, oilve wood and bamboo are very durable. They are well suited for non-stick pans and pots, similar to kitchen utensils made of stainless steel and silicone. With good care – e.g. oiling with a cooking oil from time to time – the wood retains its natural structure and does not dry out. To prolong the life of wooden cooking utensils, it should always be washed with water, then wipe with cloth and then leave to dry out. When the wooden cooking cutlery has had its day, it can be recycled or brought for thermal recycling. Or use them for DIY projects. Discarded wooden cooking spoons can be sanded and then painted or worked on with a branding iron. That way you quickly have a beautiful gift.
