For years, I used this measuring spoon:
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!|
In short, I now love my measuring spoons. It actually makes my life better in a quantifiable, albeit very, very small, way.
