There are many different types of cooking utensils. The most common ones are stainless steel, wood, bamboo, and cast iron. When you are using custom cooking utensils, it is important to take even more care when cleaning. Let’s look into what you should and shouldn’t do when it comes to your kitchen utensils.
Stainless steel pots are the most common cookware, but what about your spoons, or other forms of stainless steel cooking utensils? If you want these to stick around for a long time, you need to prevent them from being burned. You should also try to clean them properly every time you use them.
To clean stainless steel, boil some soapy water. Let your utensils soak and then scrub once they have been there for one hour. Use a sponge, but never use bleach.
Although knives typically are placed in a dishwasher, this is not something you want to do. It is better to clean with your hands and a sponge. Use dish soap and hot water, then dry it with a cotton rag instead of air drying because this can cause rust.
Wooden Cooking Utensils
There are so many different types of wooden cooking utensils. There are bamboo and wood, which are two main forms. Wooden cutting boards, spatula, bowls, spoons, or trays always need to be cleaned properly. It can be very gross if they are not. One way to clean these items is to rinse with water and soap. Always let the utensils dry immediately and naturally.
Three times per year you should apply walnut oil to your utensils. Walnut oil helps to protect your wooden spoons and cutting boards because it polymerizes with air contact. It should always be warm before applying, but this will keep things nice and fresh, but also non-toxic.
Cast Iron Pans
Fat oil and seasoning make it hard to clean your cast iron skillet. Cast iron skillets are known to be easily ruined because they cannot be washed like a normal pan. Never soak your cast iron pan in water.
All you want to do to clean your cast iron pan is to add oil and use thick salt to scrub off the food. You can also use a towel to remove the dirt and absorb oils. Although this might sound unsanitary, you will degrade the seasoning of the pan and it will be pointless to use over a normal pan.
