What type of cooking utensils do you use? (plastic, bamboo, wood, metal, etc)

What type of pots and pans? (non-stick, cast iron, aluminum, copper, glass, etc.)


I use bamboo, wooden and metal cooking utensils. I've been plastic free for quite some time (5 years maybe) and would never go back. I do have some rubber spatulas for mixing bowls during baking but they never see heat, and even then I think I only have about 4 of those now. Some of my favorite utensils are actually from a few antique stores in VA, they sure don't make them the same anymore!

Pots and pans, I have two non-stick pans; one hubby just bought... I wasn't too happy about that purchase (it was a WOK and in my eyes, woks shouldn't be non-stick. lol), the other is the biggest pan I have, and it's size is what keeps it around, but as soon as I find a replacement size wise I will be making the switch to stainless steel or the sort. The rest of my pans are stainless steel (mix of old and new), my newer ones have copper bottoms. I also have a good assortment of cast iron.

Ask me about dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils!

Our cooking utensils are bamboo or metal, and rubber spatulas.

Our pots and pans are all stainless steel except one pan that my MIL got us, and we use it to cook bacon and chicken only.

We had teflon and I hated them. They were scratched within less than six months of being married! (Mostly because my husband didn't listen when I told him to clean them with wash cloths!) My husband did have two stainless steel pans from before we were married so I now just use those. I have the teflon in the storage area and I may donate them to charity. But is that a mean thing to do?

I do have to buy one or two more. Problem is, when ever I do any research on different types, I keep running in to scare websites about each brand. (Don't look them up, they are often by someone trying to sell a very expensive product) And being pregnant it makes me way to paranoid so I may ask some family and friends for advice. It's also difficult because I'm not exactly a good cook. I'm not even sure what half the cooking utensils I got for my wedding are used for! That and my husband is SUPER picky that meal planning is a major stressful chore. (He would seriously live off of plain white bread if it were possible!)
