Having the right gear in your kitchen can make all the difference when it comes to getting the most out of your cookware — and your favorite recipes. If there's one go-to for professional chefs and home cooks alike, it's durable and stylish wooden kitchen utensils.

Not only does the natural material add a beautiful textural touch to an otherwise utilitarian space, but wooden utensils have many technical advantages as well. Unlike materials like steel, wood is non-reactive, so you don't need to worry about leaving behind a metallic taste. Wooden utensils also don't conduct heat, so you can leave a spoon in a slow-cooking sauce, and the wooden handle will never be hot to the touch. Beyond that, wood is gentle on every type of cookware — from cast iron Dutch ovens to slick nonstick pans — so you'll never have to worry about your chosen utensil scratching or ruining the coating on your favorite pan. Looking for pretty and practical pieces to add to your kitchen? Our best wooden utensil picks below will add utility to your kitchen for years to come.
