It's the Little Things

For years, I used this measuring spoon:
It's adjustable!
Because it's adjustable, so you don't need separate teaspoons and tablespoons measures.  You save drawer space.  It seemed like a good idea.

However, over time, I grew to hate it. 

It was awful for liquids, since the adjusting part got loose and leaked.  And it was actually inconvenient to have just one measuring spoon, since I often needed several measures and was constantly cleaning it out so I could use it for a different ingredient.  It got to be very annoying.  

It did work, though, although poorly, so I kept on using it.  And then for my birthday I got these spoons.
Not adjustable, but it is accurate!
There's one of each size!  Each size is clearly labelled!  Each size is more or less accurate!  Each one has two scoops - one rounded, and one oval for those narrow jars!  They aren't bound by a ring, making them awkward to use!  It's magnetic, so that all stick together in the drawer in a compact way! 

In short, I now love my measuring spoons.  It actually makes my life better in a quantifiable, albeit very, very small, way. 


  1. These look like a great space saver, and with the trouble i have finding all my measuring spoons i think i may have to pick it up both kinds!

  2. I came across your blog today and enjoyed it. Is it ok if we re-post some of your entries in our newsletter? I just think a lot of the food and beverage people who visit our community would like reading some of your posts, even though they are mainly industry professionals, they are still ‘foodies’. Let me know. :)


  3. Just ordered, thanks!

  4. Thanks for posting this. I had a set of these but they were plastic. I loved them!!! We moved, got a dishwasher and then I melted them :(
