These measuring spoons are absolutely beautiful, and very well made. I have several of your wooden utensils and use them daily. They're so practical, and pretty. I never wash them in the dishwasher, and try not to leave them in my dishwater for long. I then let them air dry. Once dry, I pour just a bit of olive oil on them and use my fingers to make sure all the surface is covered with a thin layer. After a few minutes, if there's any excess that hasn't absorbed into the wood, I wipe it off with a paper towel. This really brings out the beauty of the wood, and makes them very easy to clean the next time. These measuring spoons are so pretty that I'm looking for a way to display them on my counter, rather than put away w/other measuring spoons. I actually bought 2 sets (one's a gift) and they were even nicer than I'd anticipated.
