Eco-gecko Disposable Wooden Taster Spoon Heavy Weight 100 / Pack
Customer questions about this product
- Is this wooden flatware compostable? How long does it take to break down?
- This flatware has no coatings or glazes; it is made of solid birch wood, which is biodegradable and compostable. In an industrial composting facility, wooden flatware takes about 80 days to break down. The length of time in a backyard compost pile will vary depending on the location.
- Is wooden cutlery sustainable?
- Yes, renewable resources are considered sustainable. This wooden cutlery is produced from replanted and harvested birch forests that are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified.
- What about splinters?
- This wood flatware feels just like a popsicle stick or a tongue depressor, only shaped like cutlery. You won't have to worry about splinters.
- What if I don't like the taste of wood?
- This wooden flatware is intended for use with food. Since wood is a porous material, oils and sauces will be absorbed into the knife, fork, spoon, or taster spoon while you use them, so your food won't have a wood taste.
Offer an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional disposable taster spoons at your ice cream shop, candy shop, bakery, gourmet shop, or supermarket with this renewable wooden taster spoon! Its petite curved end functions just like a full size spoon for easy scooping, yet is small enough for sample-size portions.
Unlike some "green" alternatives, this heavy weight wood taster spoon won't break down or turn to mush if stored in high heat areas. It is also burnable, which makes disposal easy when serving ice cream treats or Italian ice at summer camps or lodges.
This heavy weight wooden utensil is made from solid birch wood that is harvested from F.S.C. (Forest Stewardship Council) certified replanted/sustainable forests.
In addition to its overall sturdiness and clean look, this renewable birch wood taster spoon is also biodegradable and compostable. It has an overall length of 3 3/4" and the spoon bowl is 7/8" wide. USDA and CFIA Approved. Sold in packs of 100.

I planned on using these tester spoons to attach to my jars or jams and cookie butters. Because they are wooden and eco-grade, they may not be the best of use for heavy items such as really stiff ice cream or yogurts. I would only recommend them solely for taste testing.

These wooden spoons are so cute and the quality is excellent. I put them in my cupcakes that I bake in souffle cups. I highly reccommend these spoons! Will be buying more.

We try in our small farmers' market to use degradable products and no plastics if at all possible. We provide many items our vendors need to keep their costs down and to support our values. These spoons are a favorite with everyone for sampling all sorts of goodies they sell. The market will also use them as part of our ice cream social coming up soon.

Attach these to a nicely packaged homemade cupcake with baker's twine for gift giving and that little detail really makes it extra special -- a spoon is practical! But a wooden spoon? Gorgeous with packaging. I expected them to be too big for what I needed them to do…but they are PERFECT and I am more than pleased!

These spoons are perfect for samples or smaller desserts like mini parfaits. Hoping these spoons go well with a new frozen dessert being added to our menu.

When using them in my parfait I had to make sure not to pack the crumbs at the bottom or else the spoon's leverage had a breaking point. That was something I had to correct. I love these spoons and that they are recyclable.

Great little taster spoons! They are stout enough to dip into hard ice cream but small enough to still be "disposable." My customers always comment on how much they love this little wooden spoon an often opt out of receiving a larger plastic spoon once I've scooped their ice cream.

I love these wooden spoons! They are so much better for the environment than plastic and they are way less tacky. Our customers love to use them. They are so pretty and eco friendly!

Haven't decided exactly where I want to use these yet with my products but they were so cute, I just couldn't pass them up. So many things I purchase from here are items I happen upon while browsing. I just love Webstaurant!!

These are perfect for passes apps that require a small utensil. Much nicer than plastic spoons and customers love that they are Eco friendly, as do I!

These spoons are really nice and sturdy. You can do so much to them they are durable and a good option if you don't want the plastic look.
Chana M. Posted on 02/24/2014
Excellent green spoons. They are strong and no splinters. Long enough to reach the bottom of most jars. A bit pricey compared to plastic, but very classy.
Karen B. from Gilpin Market Posted on 01/31/2014
Wanted these for when I have company and want to serve small dishes with tasting sppons nearby. This way if someone wants to try a dish before putting it on their plate they may.

awesome little spoon. great for sampling our products in the shop. And we love the fact that it's made of sustainable bamboo. Looking forward to ordering more from this line

We used these at our Grand Opening to serve food samples. The wood was nice and sturdy and looked great at our display table !
Brenda C. Posted on 09/05/2013
Perfect for parties and pastry tastings. Feels luxurious and adds depth to all products. I think it's perfectly sized also and will buy more of them.
Lena K. from Lena's bakery Posted on 09/03/2013
These little guys are perfect (little bigger than traditional plastic tasters) they add a little something special to your sampling display. We have even taken a stamper with our company name an placed it on the handles of the spoons. Great to personalize for an event or party. Very sturdy, great for cold or hot foods. Smooth texture not rough or flemsy in any way.

Great product! Love that it is environmentally friendly and definitely classier than plastic - added a great touch to the tasting portions at our town's "Taste of" event.

These spoons are used in our skincare line for body scrubs and butters. They are small but durable and attach well to our 8 oz. jars.
Tammy C. from The Glass Jar Natural Skincare Posted on 07/03/2013
I love these spoons and all my clients do as well. They are the perfect size to send out with orders as well as allowing people to taste test a little before purchase.
Michelle R. from nom nom nom fudge Posted on 06/11/2013
I love these little spoons, they are so cute and perfect to go along with a variety of items! I use them with large lotion orders (in 17 ounce containers) and for my espresso fudge! They add just enough to the items and work great! I will be ordering them again!
Amy W. from Amyke Design Posted on 05/19/2013
I love these cute ice cream spoons! They go great with the vintage ice cream cups I sell in my store! My customers have been using them for their weddings on the dessert buffet! I love the fact that the size of the spoons are perfect for the size of my ice cream cups!
Mark S. from Paper Treats Posted on 04/23/2013
These spoons are great for tasting ice cream all day. So much better than your employees sticking their grimy paws in the butter cream. The price can't be beat.
James B. Posted on 11/11/2012
These spoons are great for many things and fit my style perfectly. I use them for cupcakes, ice cream, and many more things. They are sturdy and work well.
