Looking for both style and functionality? The Ironwoodâ„¢ Acacia wood natural 12" long spoon adds superior style to cooking and serving for the discerning home cook or chef. This beautiful Acacia wood kitchen tool is crafted from sustainably harvested, gorgeous Acacia hardwood, known for its unique and natural contrasting patterns and antibacterial properties. It is completely natural as we leave all of our wood in its natural state with no varnishes or lacquers. Ideal utensil for mixing soups, sauces, pasta, rice and more! Wooden spoons will allow you to cook and mix foods without scratching your non-stick pans, or transferring heat like metal spoons do. Never worry about burning yourself on a hot metal spoon again! Thereâ€™s nothing quite like the good old-fashioned feel of wood for all your cooking needs. Wood products should never be washed in the dishwasher. Never soak or leave water on the wood during drying as it may result in warping over time. Regular application of our Ironwood butcher block oil will prevent cracking and preserve the rich natural colors of the wood.
