Wooden bowls were the rage for salad bowls in the 70's. Check out a second hand store, I see them there all time. It would be much less expensive too!

I just use the wood salad bowls that my grandmother handed down to me.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

Bambu makes utensils for babies/kids.

I saw some fairly inexpensive wooden bowls at Ikea, too.

What do you guys do to keep those clean? I picked up a couple at a thrift shop, but am wondering if there is something special I should do. I am kind of afraid that they will sort of suck in the contents and be hard to clean. I also heard something about oiling them?

I oil mine like I do my cutting boards, with almond oil.

There are also food grade oils made specifically for oiling cutting boards -- you could use those too -- they may provide more of a seal.

Here's a cutting board oil (I don't know anything about mineral oil so don't flame me if that's a bad choice):

You could also just use the beeswax.

many of the cutting board oils are mineral oil- which is petroleum based.

we wash with a mild castile soap like vermont soap or dr bronners. Occasionally we wax it with a bit of beeswax melted into olive oil (1 part beeswax to 6 parts olive oil) I like to add a bit of orange EO too.

Yeah, I had edited my post to add that mineral oil is a petroleum product. See, there's reason I never used it == I just didn't know it! hahaha. Anyway, I also clean with Dr. Bron and I use almond oil. Maybe I'll try mixing it with the beeswax...

I have one of these that I bought at a local kitchen shop for less than $10. I think it was about $8. They're pretty nice because they're really thick and so when your toddler flings them down on the tile floor they don't break as easily. Yes, wood will break. We had some other wooden salad bowls before, but I think dd2 cracked all of them when she was a toddler. We used to let her eat off the big wooden cutting board (we've never cut meat on it) and that way she could make a big mess, but it was too large for her to fling to the floor when she was done. It worked out really well for us.

We found a set of 6 US made 1940s walnut bowls on e-bay for 15$ (yes, 6!) with a big salad serving bowl. They are still in great shape. Everyone in our family uses them all the time. Check e-bay and salvation army/consignment stores.
