The Best Wooden Salad Bowls (Review) in 2020
Nothing shows off a fresh, crisp salad like a wooden salad bowl. The natural beauty of the wood contrasts with the vibrant colors of the nutritious salad items to make a mouth-watering center piece for your table. Most salad bowls have a solid base that opens up to a wide diameter at the top so serving the salad is easy. Many come with serving utensils.
You also have the option of individual salad bowls which usually come as a set of four. You can use these for cereals, fruit or snacks such as popcorn. Wooden salad bowls are very durable but you do have to look after them. You will not be able to put them in the dishwasher or microwave. The best approach is to clean them with cool water and a mild detergent and dry thoroughly after use. A little mineral oil also helps.

With this lovely wooden salad bowl set you get four individual portion salad bowls with a diameter of four and a half inches. These are for individual servings and not for one large salad. Each of the bowls has been produced by lathe-turning and each is made from a single piece of wood. They are made from solid Jujube hard wood and contain no pressed or glued pieces. The finishing process includes manual grinding and hand sealing; only natural plant-based oils which are safe for food contact materials have been used.
Because every bowl is made from a different block of wood, each one is unique and has its own character which is created by the wood grain and the characteristics of the individual part of the individual tree. You will need to do your bit to preserve the beauty of your salad bowls. Do not expose them to dishwashing or microwaving and keep them away from bright sunlight. Only hand wash them in mild detergent and hand-hot water. They will last longer if you periodically wipe them with some olive oil and wipe off the excess. This will bring out the natural wood grain again and prevent them from drying out and cracking.
