Wooden or Plastic Utensils?

Wooden kitchen utensils are always the best choice when it comes to preparing food at high temperatures that require frequent mixing.

The heat is evenly distributed because the utensils do not heat up, and if you use delicate copper utensils, you will not damage their surface layer.

Conversely, plastic utensils can melt if they come into contact with the heated sides of the dishes. A much more serious problem is chemicals in plastic materials, which can end up in food and thus affect your health.

Plastic utensils absorb the smells and tastes of spicy dishes such as numerous soups and sauces, even after washing.

Are Silicone Kitchen Utensils of Good Quality?

Silicone kitchen utensils have several advantages over the characteristics of metal, plastic, or wooden utensils.

First, silicone is resistant to heat, which is why it is perfect for use when it comes to preparing food at high temperatures. It is resistant to stains and does not retain odours, nor does it take on the colour of certain foods.

Silicone products are easier to maintain and clean. They are also safer to use because bacteria and microbes do not deposit on the silicone, as is the case with wooden utensils.

Silicone will not damage cooking or baking utensils. It cannot produce hazardous substances during evaporation, as is the case with metals that can corrode. There are no known health hazards associated with the use of silicone kitchen utensils.

There are no universal rules for decorating the kitchen; everyone should buy a set of necessary items based on their habits and needs.

Still, what kitchen utensils should be bought? You can consider the basic set of dishes and various useful tools for the kitchen, with which you can already run the household and welcome your guests.
