I love a good wooden spoon! I know what a strange thing to love, but I am in my kitchen so much that a good wooden spoon is an essential part of every day. I have brought some really terrible utensils made from various materials, but nothing in my opinion compares to wood. You can use it on any surface, its durable and long lasting and just gets better and better the more you use it. My wooden spoons were modeled of an old spoon that belonged to my grandmother. She had used it for so many years that it had worn the actual spoon end down into a beautiful shape. It's my favorite spoon in the kitchen to use and it's the reason I designed the My Beach Kitchen spoons in the shape they are in.
