wooden bowls can be served with most any food without the worry of smellsWood bowls are coming back not just as an item used for decoration, but for actual use in our everyday kitchens! When you get a wood bowl from WKS Wood Design, you will find that they are not as high-maintenance as you may have once thought they were and are also ready to be used as more than just a special-occasion salad or bread bowl.

If you love the look of wood bowls on your table and in your home, we here at WKS Wood Design are happy to let you know some of the options that, with proper care and cleaning, can easily be served in wood bowls at your table. If you are wondering what types of foods are able to be served in your wood bowls, here are a few options:

  • Soups & Stews
  • Chili
  • Salads
  • Bread
  • Casseroles
  • Pasta Dishes
  • Salsa
  • And virtually anything else you can think of!

When it comes to your wooden bowls, you might be surprised to learn that you can serve virtually any food in them as long as they are properly cleaned and cared for! Wooden bowls cannot be washed in the dishwasher or left to soak or they might absorb the water, swell and shrink. However, this doesn’t mean that you are left to serving only dry bread or un-dressed salads in your wooden bowls.

As long as you clean your bowls properly (hot, soapy water, rinse, dry thoroughly) and regularly treat them with a bit of food-grade mineral oil or even a little beeswax, your wooden bowls can be served with most any food without the worry of smells or flavors being transferred from one dish to another.
