These 9" Round Bamboo Skewers are made from natural bamboo and feature a sharp-pointed design. Reusable, simply soak these skewers in water before cooking and they will be ready for use on a grill or oven. Ideal for skewering vegetables, fruit, shish kabobs, or meat, they are eco-friendly for maximum convenience. Bamboo products are made from the part of the plant called the sheath. The sheath is the protective outer layer of the bamboo's culm that grows in young plants. When the plant has matured, the sheath falls off and is collected, cleaned, and boiled. Once the sheath has been laminated it is then pressed and bonded into the desired shape. This process is completely eco-friendly and does not involve the use of chemicals or toxins. Featuring a sleek design, these skewers are a wonderful eco-friendly option.
