Well, it doesn’t get much smaller than measuring spoons, does it? I have to admit, I have a ton of measuring spoons. I cook a lot, so this comes in handy. Over the years, I have purchased my spoons as soon as they hit sale.
My favorites are still my handy dandy plain ones. It’s funny how that works out. This is because I know the measurements are right on them.
I recently purchased some owl ones from World Market for $4.50 with a coupon.
And some Toadstool measuring spoons also from World Market for the same price as above.
But how did they “measure up”? I decided to test their functionality.*
It turns out they all measured slightly differently. The biggest difference was in the owl tablespoon purchased from Anthropologie. It was much larger than a regular Tablespoon. The closest measurement was the toadstool tablespoon. Although the teaspoon version of it ran short. As did the owl tablespoon from World Market. So, what is a girl to do?
Well, now that I know this, I am going to be more careful in my measurements with my cooking. The Anthropologie tablespoon will be used for insignificant items such as coffee, where an exact measurement is not necessary.
I am also considering these Color Tab Measuring Spoons currently on sale at Anthropologie. But I would want to see them in person.
Do you have any fun measuring spoons? How do they perform in terms of accurate measuring?
It’s the little things: fun functionality.
* This experiment was done for fun. I tried to be very accurate, but I am only human. Please take my experiment with a grain of salt…Or flour, if you will. Your measurements may vary.
