We've written before about how much we love wooden spoons
and constantly reach for them for sweet and savory dishes. They look organic, feel good in our hands, and are sturdy and powerful while being gentle to our pots and pans.
One we don't have but desperately want: the square-edged wooden spoon. Read why and see Sara Kate's below... The square edge allows you to scrape the bottom nooks of a pot while sautéeing and gives you a more targeted approach. The pointed corner also usually means you have one longer, flatter side to scrape the sides of a bowl or de-glaze a pan.
Classic, round wooden spoons are inexpensive. You can get them for a few bucks, sometimes less, at most stores. The square-edged spoon above, called the Spootle Lazy Spoon, is from Jonathan's Wild Cherry Spoons. It has a notch for resting it on the edge of the pot and costs $26, so it's more of an investment (or a Mother's Day gift).
Anyone else in love with this tool?
