As a durable yet gentle material, coconut shells are used to create kitchen utensils that are ideal for use with just about every type of cookware. One of the more important aspects of coconut utensils is that they can be used safely with stick resistant coated cookware. Unlike metallic utensils, the texture of the utensils is much less likely to create scratches or damage the protective coating in any manner. As a secondary advantage, coconut kitchen utensils can stand up to a great deal of heat. This makes them superior to many types of plastic cooking utensils, which may not be able to hold up to the rigors of daily use. For persons who prefer to use stick and stain resistant coated cookware, coconut utensils are an obvious choice. Among the most common of all coconut kitchen utensils are large spoons.
Coconut shell spoon kitchen utensils usually are solid enough to be used, even when making large quantities of soups, stews, or broths. They also are handy when preparing large quantities of rice or mixing casserole ingredients. The coconut slotted spoon is an ideal mixer for food that contains less liquid, by the conventional coconut spoon works well when adding liquids to a recipe.
