Helen Chen's Asian Kitchen 13-inch Bamboo Stir Fry Spatula is safe to use on non-stick cooking surfaces. It's made of bamboo so it's super strong and durable. Because bamboo is less absorbent than wood, tool is easier to keep clean and sanitary. This attractive and lightweight material is the perfect material for a kitchen utensil and the perfect material for those of us who are environmentally responsible. Natural bamboo "grass" is constantly replenishing and therefore a sustainable resource. Hand wash recommended. By Helen Chen's Asian Kitchen.
