Wooden Spoons

QUESTION:

Hello Debra,

I was hoping for you opinion on some Calphalon wooden spoons I found at Bed and Bath. I was about to purchase them when I read that they were made in China but distributed from OH with an all natural finish. Should I be wary of the fact that it was made in China? Otherwise what brand do you recommend for wooden spoons?

Thanks for you insight!

DEBRA'S ANSWER:

I have a lot of wooden spoons I've purchased over the years. Some had finishes, others didn't.

There's no problem with natural finishes like beeswax, etc. But you can easily tell if the wood is unfinished.

Debra :-)


COMMENTS:

anything finished or painted in china is highly suspect. If finished in USA, ask what they used.
