The history of wooden cutlery

With the continuous advancement of the processing and casting industry in history, the types of cutlery have become more diverse, and bone products, wood products, bamboo products, bronze products, and ceramic products have varied. In order to eat more conveniently, the people of the pre-Qin period invented the "箸" on the basis of the original cutlery, which is what we now call chopsticks, one of the earliest wooden cutlery.

According to the "Historical Records", chopsticks already existed in the Shang Dynasty, but the earliest chopsticks were only used as a tool for picking vegetables.


Types of wooden cutlery

Generally, wooden cutlery can be divided into two types: painted and unpainted. The surface of painted cutlery is smooth and unpainted exudes a rustic texture. Compared with unpainted wooden cutlery, a layer of paint can prevent the wood from being invaded by foreign substances. Not only does the painted cutlery have a brighter surface, but also more convenient for maintenance and use. As for bare wood cutlery, there is no need to worry about the problems caused by painting, but the biggest disadvantage is the fear of water.

The wood itself has pores that are invisible to the naked eye. If it is not dried after cleaning, it is easy to cause the wood hair to mold and rot, and the outside dirt and grease are also easy to penetrate. It is recommended that before using the unpainted cutlery for the first time, after the cutlery is washed and completely dried, take a kitchen paper towel or napkin with a little olive oil or use a 2:1 ratio of olive oil + white vinegar to wipe the cutlery. Let the surface form a protective layer, although it can not be completely sealed as painted, but also has a protective effect. Painted cutlery not only has a brighter surface, but also is more convenient to maintain and use.


Small details of wooden cutlery maintenance:

1.When putting fried food on wooden cutlery, put a layer of oil-absorbing paper

Avoid direct food contact with wood, it will help extend the use of cutlery.

2. Don't use wooden cutlery for easy dyeing food

When food coloring penetrates into the pores of wood, it is difficult to clean, and it is easy to leave marks on the edge of the cutlery.

3. Don't put wooden utensils in the microwave

Once placed in a microwave oven and heated at high temperature, the water content inside the wooden cutlery is uneven, and it is easy to deform or even crack.

4. Wooden cutlery should not be put in the refrigerator

If you put the wooden cutlery in the refrigerator for a long time, the inside of the cutlery is too dry and it is easy to deform.

5. Do not open moldy fruits next to wooden cutlery

Spores are invisible to the naked eye on moldy fruits and are easily spread in the air. Because wooden cutlery itself contains moisture, it is easy to become a hotbed of mold.
