Upgrade Your Kitchen With The Best Wooden Salad Bowls

If you want to turn an ordinary salad into a masterpiece, serving it in a wooden bowl will work wonders. The best wooden salad bowls aren't just nice to look at — they're made of denser hardwoods, like acacia, or wood-like bamboo, so they won't absorb too much water from your greens. Acacia wood is particularly durable and sturdy, while bamboo is a more lightweight material. But since a wooden salad bowl is about aesthetics, picking one out is mostly going to rely on personal taste.

Wooden salad bowls come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and are sold individually, in sets, and sometimes with matching serving utensils. If you are providing salad for multiple people, a large wooden serving bowl will work wonderfully. But if you are more interested in swapping out your everyday salad bowls with wooden bowls, look for a set of smaller, individual bowls.

Once you have your bowls, make sure you wash them by hand and dry them immediately to prevent them from warping or cracking. Periodically, you can apply mineral oil to your bowls to keep them in top condition.

If you’re looking for a serving bowl that’s slightly smaller and lighter, this Totally Bamboo bowl is your best bet.

Since the bowl is made entirely of bamboo, it’s also quite lightweight (under 1 pound). If 10 inches isn't your ideal size, the bowl is also available in 6-inch, 12-inch, and 16-inch diameters.
