Metal And Synthetic Spoons For Mixing

- May 03, 2018-

  Although spoons made of metal or synthetics don't have the traditional look and feel of wooden spoons, they work for mixing in some cases. Like wooden spoons, plastic spoons don't scratch nonstick cookware and are insulated, but they're not as strong as wood and might release chemicals when you mix ingredients under high heat. Metal spoons transmit heat up to your hand and can possibly break glass mixing bowls -- they're useful for mixing salad ingredients in a wooden bowl. High-tech spoons, made with resin and fiberglass, are durable, dishwasher safe and heat resistant.
