Big wooden spoons are fucking disgusting. They absorb wetness and remind me of damp mossy logs in the forest. Now, I *adore* damp mossy logs in the forest, but I do not want to use them to stir and serve my food in the kitchen, okay? Fucking nasty.
My boyfriend is fond of wooden cooking utensils, and since he does most of the cooking I shouldn't bitch about his preferred tools. Except then I am left with the mystery of cleaning them, trying to avoid soap so they don't absorb soap flavor, and being left feeling that they are not clean. When I lay them out to dry, I am sure they magnetically pull bacteria breeding factories towards them, absorbing them and making colonies of slimy sewage.
Gross. Stainless steel PLEASE!!
