    So... what is your go-to spoon when it comes to cooking, and why?

    - Do you use wooden or nylon/plastic spoons?

    - Depending on which type you use, what do you like about the type that you use?

    - Where do you keep your cooking spoons?

    - Do you buy more expensive spoons, or multi-pack economy ones?

    - As a sort of piggyback question to this conversation, do you use a wooden or plastic cutting board?

    - Do you use wooden or nylon/plastic spoons? Wood, but do have a few plastic ones. Love wood way better!

    - Depending on which type you use, what do you like about the type that you use? Wood is natural, feels good when using, and wood possesses a natural enzyme that helps kill bacteria

    - Where do you keep your cooking spoons? In the silverware drawer. I used to have a clay pottery vase I stood them up in on the counter

    - Do you buy more expensive spoons, or multi-pack economy ones? Cheap economy ones

    - As a sort of piggyback question to this conversation, do you use a wooden or plastic cutting board? Wood

    I use wooden or metal.

    I have a set of bamboo that I really love. My favorite are 2 spatula type that are great for sauteing.

    I have some great large metal spoons that I like to use to serve with.

    Cutting board(s) are wood. I have different sizes. I do have one that is a plastic type and that one is only used for onions.
