A wooden spoon

A wooden spoon is a long handled kitchen spoon made from wood usually used for stirring.

Supposedly, sanitation of wooden spoon can be problematic, because bacteria get into the pores of the wood. However, in practice, this is not a major difficulty if the spoon is used only to stir boiling mixtures, and is washed and dried properly between uses.

The wood can be maintained with the addition of rubbing it down in mineral oil after washing, do not use vegetable oil as this can go rancid.
