Wooden kitchen accessories are gentle on fragile cooking surfaces. These kitchen accessories have the particular benefit of not scratching non-stick pan finishes. They won't damage your cast-iron or stainless-steel cookware, and unlike metal utensils, they won't produce any noise. The fact that wood does not carry heat is another reason why wooden utensils are better than metal utensils. If you leave a wooden spoon in a hot pot for an extended period of time, the handle will remain cool, and you won't require heat-resistant gloves to pick it up. Also, wooden cooking items give a more appealing and elegant appearance to the kitchen.
