Toss leafy greens with a well-crafted, artisanal flair. These hand-made salad tossers have an elegant and slightly bowed shape. They range in size from 9” to 11.5”, are sustainably sourced, upcycled, and handcrafted in New England.
These tossers are made of spalted maple wood. The maple tree is beloved throughout New England for it’s maple syrup and vibrant fall foliage. Maple wood is characterized by a smooth grain and unique light color. We upcycle fallen maple trees that are in the early stages of decomposition to get remarkable spalted lines running throughout the wood.
Our spalted maple tossers come in two sizes to seamlessly compliment the variety of bowl sizes we offer.
Information about sizing can be found in the drop down box above. The 9″ and 11″ tossers are thin and slightly bowed. Please use photos for shape description. A wooden bowl with tossers is a popular gift for holidays, anniversaries, housewarmings and birthdays. It can be fun to mix and match patterns! For example, our black ebonized tossers pair beautifully with our artisan spalted maple bowls (and vice versa).
Spencer Peterman has become known for our woodenware displaying the intricate designs of spalted wood. Each piece is one of a kind, not only because our woodenware is handmade, but because no two spalted designs are the same.
Sustainably sourced and upcycled
Finish, spalting, size and color may vary
100% food safe
Hand wash with mild soap and towel dry.
Apply mineral oil once a month to maintain the natural beauty of the wood, except to products with our Driftwood, White Pearl, and Sea Glass finishes. These bowls are made with an acrylic food safe finish and should not be oiled.
Our mineral oil has a beeswax base that adds beauty and protection from everyday wear and tear. Beeswax conditioners help prevent wood from drying out as well as from absorbing too much moisture.
Prolonged exposure to water can cause damage; please do not submerge in water or place in the dishwasher.
Common mistakes include letting old fruit and vegetables mold at the bottom of a bowl (this may stain) and putting a bowl/board in the oven.
