Nonna’s secret weapon.
Is there any tool more essential in a nonna’s kitchen than a wooden spoon? From stirring boiling pasta and simmering sauces to threatening those who dare sneak a bite before the dish is done, the wooden spoon offers a variety of uses in the kitchen. Here we present a 100% Italian olive wood spoon, with a wide handle and large ladle end for scooping, stirring, mixing, and everything in between.
What to know:
- 100% Italian olive wood
- 11.4 inches long
- Rub with food-safe mineral oil to season; Hand wash only
Upon receiving your olive wood pieces, rub with food-safe mineral oil to season the wood. Hand wash in warm water with a gentle detergent and dry immediately after use. Re-oil your pieces as needed with a soft kitchen towel, when the wood begins to look and feel a bit dry, at least once a month. Rub the food-safe oil in a circular motion from top to bottom, covering the whole piece. For removing pieces of caked dough, use a toothbrush, dipped in water, and gently scrub until the dough has been removed. Nota bene: never put olive wood in the dishwasher! This is the quickest way to ruin your beautiful olive wood pieces.
