Are wooden cutlery any good?

wooden cutlery always gives people a feeling of joy. Delicate wooden bowls can make people feel quaint and fun. Nowadays, there are various types of wooden bowls, and the names and zodiac signs of their own children are engraved, which is very interesting.So question one: Is it good to use wooden cutlery?
Of course, it is good to use wooden cutlery, but it depends on what kind of wooden cutlery you choose. For example, for the poor quality wooden bowl chosen, the manufacturer had to paint it to cover up its inferiority, but it would cause harm to the body of the person who uses it. Because the wood used in inferior wooden cutlery may not be good wood, and it may be harmful to the body after use. Therefore, in the selection of wooden cutlery, it is advisable to choose wooden bowls made of persimmon trees, apple trees, pear trees, etc. These good woods are hard in texture, high in density, not easy to rot and mildew, and will not emit harmful smells. At the same time, in the selection of wooden cutlery, it is advisable to choose plain wood, which is not treated with corrosion resistance or painted, otherwise, the surface may also contain harmful and toxic substances such as lead. The reason why wooden cutlery is good is mainly because of its natural texture and less pollution; light weight, strong and durable; good heat preservation, not hot or cold; personalized processing, can be viewed as a handicraft.

Question 2: What paint should the wooden cutlery be painted?

In fact, if we buy wooden bowls in supermarkets or online, without consulting the store carefully, we will find that most of the wooden bowls are painted on the surface. Because wooden cutlery is made of natural wood, if it is not used with protective paint, it is easy to be eroded, rotten and moldy by liquids such as water and oil in long-term use. Therefore, the general wooden cutlery will be painted and protected on the surface.

Lacquer is divided into two categories: raw lacquer (natural lacquer) and chemical lacquer. Lacquer is more common in doors and windows, furniture and supplies made in ancient times. It is the only lacquer method in ancient China. The emperor of the Forbidden City in Beijing relied on it from the city gate, the pillars, and the furniture. Its source is sumac. It is a milky white colloidal sap harvested from the genus tree. Once exposed to air, it turns brown, and after a few hours, the surface dries up and hardens to form patent leather. The economic value of raw lacquer is very low. It has corrosion resistance, wear resistance, acid resistance, solvent resistance, heat resistance, water resistance and insulation, and glossy properties. It is used in military industry, industrial equipment, agricultural machinery, infrastructure, handicrafts and High-quality polyester material for civil furniture, etc. These lacquerware not only have the unique national style of our country, but also because the raw lacquer paint film is bright, the color is durable, and the gloss retention performance is excellent. Raw lacquer is a natural substance collected from the lacquer tree. This substance will cause great harm to the body and skin of the lacquer. For some idiosyncratic people, exposure to raw lacquer can cause severe allergic dermatitis and other diseases. Therefore, with the development of society and the advancement of science and technology, raw lacquer has been seldom picked by people. At the same time, raw lacquer is still poisonous to the people who collect it. The high price of raw lacquer has also discouraged many manufacturers.

Chemical paint is a paint made by using chemical raw materials, etc., combined with modern science and technology, which is very destructive to the ecological environment and human health. The formaldehyde and benzene contained in paint are things that many people are afraid of, so chemical paint cannot be used on wooden cutlery, and painted tableware can not be used to hold food.

Therefore, no matter what kind of wooden cutlery is, it is not recommended to use paint, let alone the place where the tableware touches the food. So what exactly is the tableware painted with? How is it protected? In fact, wooden cutlery is generally painted on the outside with environmentally friendly products such as raw lacquer, wood wax oil and water-based paint. These environmentally friendly products are also painted on the outside that does not directly contact food, rather than directly painted inside. . Therefore, when using wooden utensils, the place where the interior is in contact with food can be protected and painted with food-grade grease such as olive oil.

Question 3: Can all solid wood tableware made of wood be used?

Not all solid wood tableware can be used. First, look at the wood from which the wooden bowl is made. Many woods themselves contain toxins, which will definitely affect health after use, so it is very important to choose the material of wood. Secondly, wood is absorbent and is not easy to clean. Try not to use wooden cutlery that is soft and easy to absorb water, because the absorbed moisture will remain in the wooden cutlery for a long time, which will cause mildew inside the wood products and affect health. Finally, many wooden cutlery are painted with paint or environmentally friendly coatings, and the harmful substances painted in the container will be eaten by people. Therefore, it is best not to paint the interior with paint. You can choose the wooden cutlery that is painted with environmentally friendly paint on the outside, and the interior is painted with food-grade protective products.

In fact, I personally think that wooden cutlery is just a delicate handicraft, and I don’t feel very good in terms of practicality. If you really want to use wooden cutlery, choose tableware made of good hardwood and painted with natural lacquer or environmentally friendly products. In life, try to choose logs made of wood, and tableware that has not been painted with any paint is better. Therefore, we still have to be cautious in the choice of edible utensils. It is also possible to use stainless steel tableware or ceramic tableware.
