As the holiday baking and gifting season begins, you may want to check out my recent piece for The Spruce Eats.

I reach for wooden spoons all of the time in my kitchen, but they probably get the most use when I’m baking. Overall, I found that sturdiness and handle comfort mattered most when mixing doughs, especially dense ones.

A few had a shape that worked best when gripped a certain way to mix dough.
