Buy some practical cooking spoons for your kitchen
You should always have a cooking spoon close at hand when you’ve got something cooking on the stove so you can stir your soup and stop things burning to the bottom or flip over the food you’re frying. One look at the selection of kitchen spoons on the ZWILLING online store and you’ll see just how many different products we have on offer.
The kitchen spoon: your versatile kitchen gadget
A well-equipped kitchen is never without a cooking spoon. This handy utensil can be used to stir dishes such as soups and stews to ensure they cook through evenly and the long handle reduces the risk of burning. It can also be placed underneath the lid of your pot to stop water from boiling over.
Wood, stainless steel or silicone: what is the most suitable material for a cooking spoon?
We are all familiar with the classic wooden spoon - it’s been used in kitchens throughout the world for decades. But in recent years, cooking spoons made from different materials have also become available to buy, and they all have their advantages.
1. Wooden cooking spoons
Olive wood is the tried and tested quality material when it comes to making wooden cooking spoons. The main advantage of using wood is that it is relatively soft and so doesn’t scratch delicate bases of pots and pans, not to mention that it is also antibacterial. Olive wood which has kept its natural grain lends cooking spoons a high-quality appearance. Wooden spoons are also comfortable to hold and don’t conduct heat.
2. Stainless steel cooking spoons
The hardness of stainless steel makes it a popular material for kitchen spoons. These spoons also have a timeless design which goes well in any kitchen. 18/10 stainless steel means that the spoons are resistant to corrosion and can also be washed in the dishwasher. Stainless steel kitchen spoons should only be used in uncoated pots and pans as otherwise they can scratch the coating.
3. Silicone cooking spoons
Cooking spoons with silicone heads are tough and long-lasting. Silicone is very heat-resistant and does not become deformed even under extremely high temperatures. Silicone spoons are sturdy, easy to clean and dishwasher-safe. What’s more, they can be used in pots and pans with bases which are particularly susceptible to damage.
The cooking spoon that’s right for you depends on what other kitchen equipment you own. Do you mainly use coated pots and pans? If so, you should opt for a cooking spoon made from wood or silicone. If not, then a stainless steel cooking spoon could be the one for you.
The single-hole cooking spoon: ideal for making the perfect risotto
Have you ever wondered why some cooking spoons have a hole in the middle? The hole actually comes in handy if you have to stir food with a more solid consistency. It reduces resistance and makes stirring easier. A single-hole cooking spoon is perfect for mixing dough or preparing risotto. Most of them are angled on one side to make it easier to extract any leftovers from the pot.
You can never have enough cooking spoons in your kitchen. Why not add a high-quality kitchen spoon to your range of kitchenware, available in wood, silicone or stainless steel from the ZWILLING online store?
