Metal versus glass / plastic bowls and spoons? Answered

Is there a preference for using glass or plastic bowls versus metal? One recipe I used specified using wooden spoons... but I mixed in a metal bowl. Can metal kill the yeast? The bread dough never rose, but it passed a bubbling test. I baked it anyway. I was making a Russian Easter Bread from scratch. The Italian Egg bread came out fine. The process for mixing was different in both recipes.
