Looking for the best cooking utensils for stainless steel cookware? You’ve come to the right place. We have carefully selected the best cooking utensils for stainless steel based on factors such as material, cost, drawbacks and more.
GEEKHOM Bamboo Utensils
Bamboo cooking utensils are simply the best for all cookware materials including stainless steel. They are virtually the same as wooden utensils except they are stronger, longer lasting, water resistant, and they don’t absorb odours.
They do come with a slightly higher price tag though, but this is a small increase in comparison to wooden utensils.
For those reasons alone, bamboo utensils are our best pick for stainless steel cookware, and GEEKHOM have taken the place of the winner with their affordable quality bamboo utensils.
GEEKHOM bamboo utensils are heat resistant, no scratch, easy to clean and have a fantastic lifespan with their crack resistant traits. They blow their competition out of the water in terms of value for money.
Zulay Wooden Utensils
Wooden kitchen utensils are simply the most popular, not only are they for nature lovers who hate chemicals. But they are relatively cheap, durable and prevent damage to cookware.
For this pick, we have decided to focus on style as well as durability. Simply put, there’s no point in buying wooden utensils if you only want durability, because bamboo will always be the better option.
However, if you are looking for something more stylish than bamboo that has similar traits, then these wooden utensils are the way to go.
Zulay has created a set of wooden utensils out of high quality teak wood rather than beech wood, which looks simply amazing. Teak wood has a beautiful dark colour to it with a unique texture, making your kitchen look really unique. Mixed with the durability of teak wood, these are definitely the wooden utensils you want for stainless steel cookware if you are looking for something stylish.
Home Hero Nylon Utensils
Nylon is quite common amongst beginner chefs, not because they make cooking easier for beginners but they are simply the easiest to maintain and least intimidating.
After all, with nylon utensils you don’t need to worry about moisture, rust, or damaging your cookware. This makes them beginner friendly.
The only real drawback in my opinion is they melt quite easily… leave it in the pan for a couple of minutes and you’ll come back to half of the utensils on the floor… I’m guilty of doing this myself.
But overall, they are good for stainless steel cookware if you are a beginner.
That brings us to the Home Hero nylon utensil set. I bought this set a couple of months ago and I absolutely love it. It comes with everything… and I mean everything…
Enjoy your pizzas? It has a pizza cutter. How about opening a bottle of beer? Yep it has a bottle opener too.
If you are looking for utility, this is the set for you. Not to mention it’s incredibly easy to clean, just leave it in some soapy water to soak and everything comes right off.
Home Hero Stainless Steel Utensils
Stainless steel utensils are generally used by the more experienced cooks. Due to the durability of stainless steel, they can make these utensils quite thin whilst keeping it’s strength. Making it much easier to flip foods, especially meats that need a sear.
But that’s not all they are good for, they are extremely easy to clean, require low maintenance and look amazing in the kitchen.
There are a slight few drawbacks to these though, especially when it comes to stainless steel cookware. To prevent scratches on your pans, you need to ensure they are seasoned. As these utensils are quite harsh and can easily scratch a surface that’s not seasoned. This is typically why more experienced chefs have them, because their cookware is always seasoned.
Stainless steel can also rust too, so after washing you need to ensure they are dry otherwise you will eventually get rust on them.
Overall though, they are a good option for stainless steel cookware if you can afford them.
We decided to go with Home Hero again for the stainless steel set, it’s a 29 piece set for quite an affordable price, and with so many utensils for this price tag it makes it a brilliant value purchase.
The great thing about this set is, they have silicone heads, so you don’t need to worry about scratching your stainless steel cooking surface because silicone is extremely friendly to all cookware materials, and is definitely not strong enough to scratch stainless steel.
Amazon Commercial Silicone Utensils
Silicone utensils are another good choice for some, especially those who are less interested with professional looking styles.
Silicone is heat resistant, cheap, dishwasher safe, affordable and durable. So they are really good for functionality in terms of price.
For this pick, we decided to go with Amazons own brand. It uses food grade silicone that’s non stick, with an iron core to give the utensils strength and flexibility.
They are great for stainless steel cookware because they don’t leave scratches since they are cookware friendly.
Silicone also comes in different colours, so with Amazons set you can either go with the colourful option or a plain black option for those looking for a more sleeker look.
Overall for the quality you get in this set of tools you definitely get value out of it.
