Pre-soaking made easy with the Cuisinart Bamboo Skewer Set! Whether you are planning on using a few or many, place the skewers in the large blue translucent soak box (holds up to 100 skewers) and pre-soak wooden skewers for 10-20 minutes. Then simply turn the box over to drain the excess water. Remove the soak box, dry out the top and place remaining skewers in the convenient storage case. To get you started off, 100 bamboo skewers are included in this set!
