Chefs love to mix it up in the kitchen -- that requires sturdy utensils! This medium-size spoon is thicker and more substantial than those needed in the average kitchen. It is made from an environmentally friendly natural wood fibre composite, used by chefs and commercial kitchens for over 40 years. The spoon is extremely durable, perfectly balanced, feels good in the hand, and is safe for use on non-stick surfaces. It is dishwasher safe and heat resistant to 350°F/176C, and the non-porous surface prevents the growth of bacteria and unwanted food odours.
