Wooden spoons are controversial. Some swear by the natural material, others fear germs and bacteria. But no matter which party you belong to – these tips will really get your wooden spoons clean.
It used to be found in almost every kitchen: the good old wooden spoon. But while some are still convinced of the aid, a discussion has sparked over the past few years about the hygiene of the spoons. Since wood always has small cracks, it is THE ideal breeding ground for bacteria, germs and viruses. Not so tasty? The same goes for gastronomy.
Wooden objects are now prohibited in commercial kitchens. Neither a wooden board nor a wooden spoon can be found in the professional kitchen. At home, the helper usually still works, which is why good cleaning is important!
