10 - Wooden spoons can sometimes retain flavors
If you’ve ever wondered why you could never quite replicate your grandmother’s tomato sauce, the spoon she used may be the answer. By consistently cooking the same recipe with the same wooden spoon, the wood may absorb the flavors of the dish and its ingredients. This is believed by many chefs to add a special, magical quality to the dish and ensures that the taste and quality remain perfect every time. It’s also this one-of-a-kind quality that can transform a simple wooden spoon into a precious family heirloom.
