Ideally, hardwood is best for salad bowls. Hardwoods come from hardwood trees and produce nuts or fruit, also in temperate regions. They lost their leaves in the fall and hibernated in the winter.

In the northern hemisphere, these are deciduous trees, while in the subtropical and tropical regions they are mostly evergreens.

As its name implies, hardwood is usually harder than other types of wood, and its cell structure density makes it a more suitable choice for serving high moisture content dishes such as salads.


Cherry Wood - Cherry Wood features a beautiful contrast between the rich, dark heartwood inside the trees and the light, creamy sidebars on the outside of the trees. Small particles of minerals naturally exist throughout the grain, adding almost no black highlights (or low light).

Cherrywood is known for its excellent durability and improved appearance over time, giving it a deep rich shade of sheen. Because of these dark shades, it does not require dyeing or dyeing, so it is a 100% safe food supply.

Maple - Another durable and attractive wood that can be used with food. The pale color of the maple leaves gives it a charming and honest light-weight, wear-resistant look. The characteristic of the top woods is that it becomes better with age, because it has mature, lighter colors and brilliance.

Black Walnut - Another hardwood, with a gorgeous contrast of light and dark brown, does not require coloring and is ideal for foods. However, if you are a fan of walnuts, walnuts have the flavour and texture of walnuts, which is one of the hardest woods on the market today.

Teak - The black wavy line runs through the grain and creates amazing highlights in the teakwood profile. Natural waterproof hardwood from the tropics, teak is very suitable in the kitchen. However, teak still requires the usual light seasoning to protect it after use.

Olive - From the Mediterranean, the olive wood is sturdy, heavy, dense, with thick earthy stripes, light gold shades of sapwood, and is known for its luster. It may also have a lingering, sweet aroma in wood.

Acacia - strong and durable, high hardness, Acacia wood water resistance and corrosion resistance. Among the lovely natural grains, its amber, gold and earth tones have a deep and rich hue. It is an excellent material for kitchenware and has a deep glow when polished.


Bamboo - actually not a tree, but a member of the grass family with wooden features, bamboo grows at an alarming rate. Easily sustainable, strong and light, while also having anti-microbial properties that inhibit bacterial growth.


Plants can be ready for harvest at a height of 60-70' in just four years. If you are worried that poor harvesting will have an ecological impact, look for the FSC-certified bamboo (Forest Stewardship Council) and plant it in a plantation that is not a food source or habitat for giant pandas.
