K, I'll admit it, I'm lazy, I don't want anything else that I have to hand wash. This is my 2nd set of wooden spoons this year, they just don't survive the dishwasher. Tried bamboo, the wood lasts longer then the bamboo does. I use a lot of cast iron is I need something that is gentle with it. Any suggestions, maybe a certain hardy wooden set you use?

Very curious here too...

I was given the AllClad utensils - they're just too big and scratchy for most things

Is there a good metal or a good wood option? (Or something different all together?)

I still use some silicone from KitchenAid, but mostly good quality wood (not the flimsy ones, but sturdy ones), and some stainless steel.

I just bought a set of 5 or 6 various bamboo spoons from Wal Mart. It was less then $6.00. They are very "hardy" looking and I hope they wear well for me.

were you oiling the wood? if you don't oil it, they will get nasty fast.
