Wooden utensils have a long history, dating back to prehistoric times when early humans made tools from wood. Ancient civilizations like Egypt, China, Greece, and Rome also used wooden spoons and tools. But, with the Industrial Revolution, metal and other materials became more available, leading to a decline in wooden utensils as metal ones became mass-produced. 

Wooden cutlery has become popular again for their eco-friendly nature and potential health benefits. They're favoured for being natural, non-reactive, and non-toxic, unlike metal or plastic. Plus, being renewable makes wood an attractive choice.

How do you store a compostable wooden knife properly?

Storing a compostable wooden knife is simple. Here's how to do it:

  • Dry it Well. Make sure the knife is dry before you put it away. Wet knives can crack or get mouldy.
  • Keep it Cool and Steady. Don't store it somewhere too hot or cold. Big temperature changes can damage the wood.
  • Find a Safe Spot. Put it in a utensil drawer or a knife block. If it's in a drawer, keep it separate from other things so it doesn't get dull.
  • Oil it Sometimes. Rubbing it with some food-safe mineral oil now and then keeps the wood from getting dry, especially in dry places.
  • Stay Away from Chemicals. Don’t store it near strong cleaners or chemicals.
  • Watch the Humidity. If it's very humid where you live, use silica gel packets in the drawer to keep moisture away.

Do they affect the taste of food?

Compostable wooden knives are generally taste-neutral and do not affect the flavour of the food they are used with. But, in some cases, they impart a very mild, woody flavour, especially if the food is strongly acidic or the utensil is new. This is subtle and not noticeable in most dining experiences.
