I could see this if you consistently make very aromatic dishes like curry, but I use my silicone spatulas for everything and I clean them as soon as I finish with them so they never get too much smell on them. A wooden spoon is another matter. Those seem to absorb every smell.

I have those exact spatulas and love them. But it never occurred to me to designate some tools for savory and some for sweet. Does it really matter if all of them go in the dishwasher? (Assuming they're only used for one purpose between each wash.)
