Finding the best bamboo kitchen utensils means finding high quality and durable bamboo kitchen utensils. And for us at FHL, it means finding eco-friendly bamboo kitchen utensils that we can rely on through the thick and thin of our world famous spaghetti sauce.
In addition to quality, we looked for utensils that have a nice weight and a comfortable grip so we could focus on our cooking, rather than how our hands are not being accommodated.
Furthermore, we relied heavily on reviews when picking out these utensils. We narrowed down our search to the most beloved, tried and true bamboo utensils and came out with some great options.
But, after doing some testing while making spaghetti dish after spaghetti dish, only 6 of these options made the cut. We even had our mothers and grandmothers try out these utensils and we all unanimously agreed. These 6 best bamboo kitchen utensils are like Edward Scissorhands is to scissors. They feel as if they’re a natural extension of us which is typically only reserved for the most talented amongst us.

Metal Glass & Wood All Natural Healthy Bamboo Cooking Utensils
These all natural, 100% organic, eco-friendly bamboo cooking utensils are free of petrochemicals, paints and varnish. So, you can be sure there won’t be any transfers of harmful chemicals like phthalates and BPA.
And because these are raw bamboo, you will first want to season them with a natural oil to give them some shine and prevent food stains and odors from being absorbed. Oils, such as, tung oil, coconut oil or raw linseed oil should do the trick.
These utensil are non-stick and scratch proof. They won’t scratch your pots, pans or dishes and they are safe for all non-stick cookware.
The Metal Glass & Wood All Natural Healthy Bamboo Cooking Utensils comes with 5 utensils: Spatula, Slotted Spatula, Spoon, Slotted Spoon and Risotto Spoon. These utensils also come in a draw string bag which makes them perfect for gifting.
These are at the top of our list because of the raw nature of the bamboo. And the fact that zero chemicals are used with these utensils is one of the more important aspects of finding the best bamboo utensils.
But, because they are raw, that means they will feel a little unfinished and perhaps a little rough. However, they will get better over time and there’s nothing like molding your own grip and customizing your own utensils as you become a better cook. It may feel like you even chiseled these yourself when you’re all done, and in all reality, you have!
Other than that, the look of the Metal Glass & Wood Bamboo Cooking Utensils is as natural as you’re going to get and it will give your kitchen a very cooking-from-scratch sort of feel. And we all know it doesn’t get much better than that.
Vremi 5 Piece Bamboo Spoons Cooking Utensils
The Vremi 5 Piece Bamboo Spoons Cooking Utensils are made with natural, nonstick bamboo which is coated with a blend of natural food oil. And only eco-friendly substances that comply with FDA, SGS, BSCI and LFGB regulations have been used for the production of these utensils.
However, the handles are made with silicone. As of now, silicone is deemed to be safe for cooking and there is no data suggesting otherwise. And, the utensils are a little over 13 inches, so the chances of the silicone interacting with food is slim.
With that being said, the silicone handles not only add a decorative flavor, they add some comfort to those that don’t find comfort with wooden or bamboo cooking utensils.
This set of bamboo cooking utensils comes with 5 types of spoons: Spatula, Turner Spoon, Mixing Spoon, Forked Spoon and Slotted Spoon. And each spoon comes with a hanging hole so you can place the on the wall or perhaps a knob – however you prefer to store your spoons.
As with all bamboo cooking utensils, it is best to keep them out of the dishwasher. Simply hand wash in warm soapy water and allow to air dry or dry with a cloth.
Overall, this set gets the top spot on our best bamboo kitchen utensils list for being the best looking. And, of course, the most fun. They also have a perfect weight to them which makes them feel durable enough to get the job done. However, these utensils are square. And the square aspect might take some getting used to. But, on a positive note, the silicone handle gives it that added comfort and grip that will help you along the way.
