Measuring Spoons Where You Expect Them To Be

Measuring Spoons & Caddy

Measuring spoons are pesky little kitchen utensils: they are never where you expect them to be and when you do find one, it’s usually the wrong one. Keeping them all attached on a key ring is one way to keep ‘em together—assuming you can find it in the back of the drawer. This set of Measuring Spoons & Caddy keeps the handy utensils always within reach on the countertop. The stainless steel set is unobtrusive and as an added bonus, even comes with an extra tablespoon—just in case one gets misplaced.

Cuisipro Odd Size Measuring Spoons

The eyeball test when measuring ingredients works well for some people, but others find comfort in facts.

Better Building Of Measuring Spoons

Foldable Measuring Spoons at Sur La Table

Measuring spoons. Handy little devices–when you can find the one you are looking for. Even the ones that come attached to a plastic ring tend to get separated and subsequently lost. Forget building a better mousetrap, at least when it comes to baking essentials, it’s all about corralling those measuring spoons.

This set of Foldable Measuring Spoons at Sur La Table would do nicely. Including four of the more commonly used measurements of ¼ tsp., ½ tsp., 1 tsp. and 1 Tbsp, the one you are looking for is always at hand. Assuming, of course, you don’t misplace the entire set. For $3.95, maybe picking up an extra set isn’t a bad idea.

***UPDATE 5/12/2014***

Looks like the folding measuring spoons from the link above got lost. Luckily that isn’t the only place to get measuring spoons that don’t wander off. Check out the Talisman Designs Flip’n Good Measuring Spoon available on Amazon in a variety of colors.
