For stirring, beating, chopping, and more, wood-handled kitchen accessories are so much nicer looking and feeling than their synthetic counterparts. The good news: Wood handles are making a comeback. We're planning to upgrade our kitchen arsenals one tool at a time.  Above: Best Manufacturing's 10-inch  Wood-Handled Balloon Whisk  is made in the US and comes with a lifetime warranty; $11.95 at Sur la Table. For more local heroes, go to  15 American-Made Kitchen Classics . Above: An old-fashioned, round-handled Potato Masher  is $14.95 from Flotsam and Fork. Above:  Pallares Solsona Carbon Steel Knives  are handmade by a third-generation bladesmith in Solsona, Spain, and finished with boxwood handles. They range from $57 to $75 at March in SF. Above: An Italian kitchen essential, a Stainless-Steel Mezzaluna is $23.39 via Amazon. See 16 Made-in-Italy Kitchen Staples for more ideas. Above: Back to basics: A  Natural Rubber Spatula  with a removable handle and a hole for hanging is $6.95 at Flotsam and Fork. Above: Italian company Bianchi's workbench-style, wood-handled graters are at the top of Julie's wish list. Perfect for grating cheese or ginger, they're hard to source in this country but available via Klala of Japan. The Medium Grater (shown above, middle) is ¥2,808 ($23.72). Contact Bianchi Casalinghi for more information. Above: The beechwood and stainless steel Opinel Peeler is made in France and dishwasher safe; $12.95 from Opinel.
