Years ago my dad made a comment to me that I thought was somewhat overly confident- which was out of character for him. He told me if I ever used a wooden spoon I'd never go back to metal. Be dam if I didn't try one and now it's essentially all I use. I say "essentially" cause, like right now, the ones I have no longer have a good edge on them for scraping the "brownings" to make the gravy. I have a hard time finding the ones I use cause I'm left-handed and most have a right-hander's angle on them. When I find some that are square-ended I pick up several. There's a place near Academy in Lafayette that usually has them. I think it's a Target. Anyway, do any of you use wooden spoons? The metal ones actually wear the bottom of magnalite pots. If you look at the old ones you can notice the wear from metal-to-metal. And by "spoon" I'm galking about one like this, kinda. The style I like is a little different but this one is close.
