Salad Server: Getting salad, cake or soup safely onto a dish takes some careful doing that requires the right tool and the correct server for salad means no more tomatoes landing in your lap or olives disappearing across the floor. (Where do they roll to?) This salad server has wide gaps for effective grabbing and is easy to keep clean. Mismatch with a plain wooden spoon for a whimsically effortless, understated and rustic flair that turns a basic salad into one tasty looking dish. Dimensions: 25.5 x 7.65cm
Mixer: Whisk things up a little with this handmade wooden mixer that not only looks amazing (which is the basic prerequisite for all bohemian idealists) but it works too, which of course, is a foregone conclusion for serious foodie-types. The design is a heady and unusual mix of the simple, the solid, the pretty and the effective all-in-one and once the knack of twisting the stick between your palms is mastered, (think survival skill fire-making technique, but much easier) it knocks up a mean omelette or béchamel sauce. Dimensions: 30.5 x 9 x 2.5cm
Spoon (Small, Medium & Large): Good design is the metaphorical 'Polyfilla' for living, i.e. it fills in the gaps. The spoon, in one form or another, has been around for as long as humans have needed to eat, filling an unconscious gap ever since someone grabbed an empty shell or piece of wood to scoop with. We very much take this fabulous utensil for granted. The handmade, natural and slightly irregular appearance is very homely and tactile.
- Small: 25.5 x 2.5 x 1cm
- Med: 27 x 2.5 x 1.5cm
- Large: 28 x 7 x 2cm
Tongs: These handmade wooden tongs are the perfect gift for home-chefs of any calibre. They can be used for serving food or turning hot food whilst cooking and are a savvy solution to the age-old problem of burnt fingertip. The design also ensures an easy ‘spring-action’ without the need for any springs or complicated digit-nipping and breakable mechanisms. Dimensions: 11.5 x 17.75cm
Garlic Crusher / Muggler: Garlic masher, cookie crusher, candy cruncher, or meat tenderiser. This is a handy, all-purpose tool that makes larger items smaller. Dimensions: 20 x 3 x 3cm
Scoop Spoon: The natural appearance of this scoop spoon belies the clever design that incorporates a thin edge and a short handle. Why? The edge helps to scoop a tricky ingredient, such as flour or sugar, into a neat and sizeable clump, and the short handle ensures less mess and wobble during transference. This is one of those items in life that you never thought you were missing until you have it, and then you can’t imagine what on earth you did before it! The spoon is an unsung hero in many forms, but this one is purely and simply ingenious. Dimensions: 9.5 x 20 x 4cm

Please note: Never place a wooden item in the dishwasher. Gently hand-wash with warm water and mild dish soap. Do not allow the wood to soak in water and dry immediately. We suggest that to prevent any warping, staining, or cracking and to renew the beauty of the grain, apply one or two coats of food-grade mineral oil, three or four times per year.
