What are the Weird holes for on a cheese grater?

I assume by "weird" that you mean the ones that stick up and look like mini volcanos? They are also very sharp? These can be used for zesting citrus like lemons or limes or grating very hard foods like ginger or hard cheeses. I have never used them for this myself, because the smaller, regular round holes can also do these kinds of foods very easily.

Does a can opener have a magnet in it?

Yes, manual and electric can openers have a magnet. It is to hold onto the lid so it does not drop into the can. However, the magnet is not "in" the opener. It is on the outside, above where the piece punctures the can, but below the lever arm and wheel that makes the sharp wheel go around the can.

What is the best wood to use for kitchen utensils?

Easy answer: Bamboo. It's inexpensive, readily available, a variety of utincels come in bamboo and last, but definitely not least, it is one of the best, easiest renewable substances!!!

Another answer

Olive wood has great qualities for wooden utensils. BUT, there is "better" wood for the making of wooden kitchen utensils.

I have been making wooden ware for 6 years now. I have tried lots of different wood. I have done extreme testing to see which wood held up the best. Only one wood withstood my hard tests...And that wood was, Osage Orange ( hedge, as the locals like to call it) The wood was originally used for fence posts and hedge rows. ( because of it's resistance to rotting)

I have made wooden kitchen utensils from Osage Orange fence post that have been in the ground for 75 years. And only 1/2 an inch was effected by decay. The rest was solid and hard as a rock. Not only is it hard, but very tight grain. This is important because, it doesn't allow water to soak into the wood.

I will make this short, but a few test I did were. I Boiled a newly made spoon for 3 days (all I added was water for 3 days, and boil some more ) The spoon, did, not, crack...AND, it did not get fuzzy. The 2nd test was; to soak the same spoon for 30 days in water. I took it out and the spoon dried completely in 10 minutes. AND, it still was as smooth as the day I started the test. The 3rd test (like the other 2 wasn't enough) I left the same spoon outside in the hot summer weather (rain, hot sun, etc) for 3 months. The ONLY thing that was different was, the spoon was darker in color (from the sun) I did these test because, I wanted to know how the utensils I made with stood the normal everyday use. When I make a utensil that doesn't make the selling grade, I keep those and use, and abuse them. I leave them soaking in the sink (for days) leaving them in the hot pans while cooking ) I abuse them, so I know when you purchase them, you won't have to worry if they will stand up to everyday use.

I brought the spoon inside and washed it, let it dry and then rubbed mineral oil on it. After all those tests the Osage Orange utensil was basicly the same, except for being darker. NOW, try those tests with "YOUR" wooden spoon, and see what happens.
