Judge BioChef Eco-friendly Kitchen Tools - Review

Take a look at the new Judge BioChef kitchen utensil range - the 100% Biodegradable handles are made of Corn-based Bio-plastic.  Yes, CORN! 

The rest is a combinations of nylon and a little bit of silicone.
Attractive, practical and Eco-friendly they are heat-resistant to 210°C, and dishwasher safe too.
The Judge BioChef range includes a turner, slotted turner, spaghetti fork, slotted spoon, ladle and serving spoon.

Did you know?
Roughly 300 million tonnes of plastic is produced globally every year; it’s non-biodegradable, fossil fuel-hungry, very little of it is recycled; in short, it’s one of our biggest pollutants.  The problem is, plastic is really useful and we’d struggle to do without these days, so Bioplastic is an Eco-alternative.

Derived from renewable biomass forms (cornstarch, to you and me)!  Bio-plastic takes a waste product and transforms it into something useful, reducing landfill, fossil fuel consumption and pollution.
BPA free and FDA approved, the Judge BioChef collection is an eco-friendly, non-toxic, low-carbon and healthy way to cook for now, and for the future.

Tried and Tested:
The cornstarch handles are comfortable to hold and the utensils are perfect for everyday use.  The bit of added silicone makes them easy to grip and use.  The green colour with the band of orange makes them attractive and would look good in any kitchen.  The turner is nice and thin along the front edge which makes eggs or bacon for example easy to turn in the pan.  A good sized ladle dishes up soup or casseroles in no time and without mess. All in all, I think they are a good price too and I really like them.

Where to buy:
Available to buy in good cook-shops or online at Amazon.
Typical in- store price is £4.20 per utensil

Many thanks to Pam and Judge Cookware for sending me these to review.
All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.  I only ever post reviews on products I like the look of, and therefore would buy myself. 


  1. What a brilliant idea, I try my best to be ecologically sound but not everything I can afford to buy reflects this. Now I know about Judge tools being made this way I will definitely be treating my self to some.

    Kind Regards

  2. What a brilliant idea.

    I try my best to be ecologically sound but hadn't thought about plastic tools being non-degradeable. Now I know about the tools made of Cornstarch from Judge I will be treating myself to some.
