Measuring spoons



What’s so special about measuring spoons? I’ve written a whole post on how important it is to get your measurements right when cooking.  In particular baking.  Baking is a science and without correct measurements, at best you won’t achieve consistency at worst you’ll have a failure. What measuring spoons should you have?

Why are these spoons so terrific.

  • They’re stainless so you can pop them in the dishwasher
  • Vinegar or other acids won’t damage the surface
  • The oval shape makes them brilliant for fitting into jars. Less mess
  • They are Australian standard measurements
  • There are 5 spoons in total where there are usually only 4.

Teaspoons are fairly uniform worldwide and as far as I know, they’re all 5mls, unless there’s an obscure little place somewhere that I’ve never heard of, so no problem there.  But when it comes to tablespoons I use Australian Tbsp. 20 ml but other countries have different measurements like 14.8 ml or 15.6 ml.  Just make sure your recipe is consistent.
