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.
