Can Bamboo Skewers Go in the Oven?When your intending to use wooden or bamboo skewers on the grill or in the oven, it's recommended to soak them in water. This will keep your skewers from burning to a crisp. You will at least want to soak them for 30 minutes, this will do a decent job at keeping your skewers intact during the cooking process. If possible though, for best results, you may want to soak your skewers overnight. It can take awhile for the skewers to absorb any water, so overnight will yield the best results.
Alternatively, if you want to add some flavor to your kebabs or other foods you intend to grill, you can consider soaking your skewers in juice. This will add a little more flavor over going the traditional water soak method.

What Makes Bamboo So Eco-Friendly?

Bamboo has the reputation of being an eco-friendly alternative. You've likely heard others urging the use of more bamboo products, and wondered what makes bamboo different from other types of wood or recyclable materials. At BambooMN, we believe strongly in using bamboo to make your home and business more sustainable -- Here's why.
Fast Growing  One of the most well-known reasons that Bamboo is considered extremely renewable and sustainable is that it is very fast growing. Once bamboo is harvested, it only takes 3-5 years for a a new bamboo stalk to reach full height. Some types of bamboo can grow up to 1 meter per day. That's a great deal faster than other trees used to make wood - it can take them twenty years or more to reach full height. In addition, bamboo doesn't need to be replanted, so the original plant can continue growing even after the harvested parts are now part of your kitchen.
