Favorite Non-Toxic Kitchen Utensils and Small Gadgets
My favorite non-toxic kitchen utensils and small gadgets I use in the kitchen. Avoid toxins and chemicals leaching out into your food by using safer, toxic free kitchen utensils and small gadgets made of silicone and bamboo.

Toxic Free Kitchen Utensils
- Organic Bamboo Utensils: These are a great substitution for plastic nylon kitchen utensils! Great in a cast iron skillet because you can get a good scrape.
- Silicone Spatulas: I like using these with my Greenpans. The silicone is soft and bendable, so gentle on the ceramic coating. Silicone is heat resistant and non-toxic!
- Silicone Tongs: I use these constantly. I have 2. Great for picking up meat, stirring vegetables, on the BBQ. The head is silicone so completely non-toxic.
- Meat Thermometer: Never worry about your meat being undercooked and raw, or overcooked and dry. I love my meat thermometer! And it’s so cheap!
- Soup Ladle: Stainless steel is always safe!
- Chef’s Knife: My favorite knife! I actually have 2. Stays sharp. Perfect size.
- Glass Measuring Cups: I used to use plastic measuring cups, which are not safe when heated. Glass is much safer and the best non-toxic option.
- Metal Measuring Cups: I like using these when measuring out my dry ingredients for baking. Stainless steel is always safe. Bonus, there is a magnet on the end so all the cups can stack inside and stay together!
- Metal Measuring Spoons: These also have a magnet to help them all stick together and get organized!
- Organic Bamboo Cutting Board: I used to use plastic cutting boards. I hate to think of the amount of small shards of plastic I’ve ingested that got chipped off the cutting board. This organic bamboo cutting board is a much safer option. And better for the environment!
- Microplane Zester: The easiest way to grate garlic, zest of citrus fruit, etc.
- Box Grater: Use for grating cheese, zucchini, carrots or hard boiled eggs
- Stainless Steel Whisk: For whisking dry ingredients when baking, making gravy, etc.
- Stainless Steel Colander: For straining
- Salad Bowl: Love how big this one is!
- Can Opener
- Vegetable Peeler
- Salad Spinner
- Pastry Brush: Has silicone bristles, so toxic free!
- Stainless Steel Strainer
- Meat Mallet
- Rolling Pin
- Metal Skewers

hi natalie – i have a question – – for example the stainless colander. i ordered and it was made in china – – i know that metals from china can be a problem as they are not always consciously made and can therefore end up with toxic metals in them, even tho you think you are making a good purchase – – the colander that you link to, was it researched to be from a reputable manufacturer? thanks!
Good question! I haven’t gone that far to research where they’re all manufactured. Love that you do! I’m sure you can find some american made stainless steel colander. Best of luck!

Hi! I love that you did this post and it’s motivated me to get rid of all my toxic stuff that I didn’t realize was toxic! So thank you! I have a question about cutting boards, I found some BPA free polypropylene at target. Are they safe?
Thank you so much Jessica! Glad they are helpful! So many sneaky toxins in tons of things. BPA free plastic cutting boards are a great choice! I saw those ones at Target too. Glad you’re making the swaps!
This is a great list, thank you! And I also appreciate how you say you save up for these changes because they are* expensive and hard to change all at once!
Another great option for deodorant and shampoo is Lush Cosmetics. They come in bars, so zero plastic exposure or waste.
I’ve been trying very hard to not buy food in plastic and it’s so.hard. – and more expensive too. Any tips on that lmk! :)
I am so happy you liked my list for non toxic utensils and gadgets Paula! It can be so expensive to make these changes that you have to be kind to yourself and lean into the process. Small changes can make the biggest difference. Lush cosmetics is something I need to look into and I very much appreciate your suggestion! I always try to think of it as baby steps!
