Adjustable Measuring Spoons

Filed under: Kitchen Gadgets — Laura Moncur @ 1:38 am

Good Cook Adjustable Measuring SpoonsWhen I bought these Good Cook measuring spoons several years ago, I thought they were a blessing. Instead of searching for the exact right measuring spoon, this one was always the right one because it was adjustable. It didn’t take me long to realize that this meant I had to wash the stupid thing several times while creating one recipe because I would need it for more than one ingredient.

I worried that these adjustable spoons wouldn’t work with liquid measurements like vanilla extract, but they work like a dream. I thought the vanilla would seep under the sliding adjuster and make the measurement off, but I haven’t had that trouble because I hold the spoon on the adjuster and put a little pressure on it to make sure liquid doesn’t get under it. I’ve never had a problem.

Pro Adjustable Teaspoon & Tablespoon Set with Chrome FinishIt looks like adjustable measuring spoons are getting so popular now that they come in fancy chrome designs like these Pro Adjustable Measuring Spoons. I don’t really feel the need to display my cooking utensils, so these wouldn’t really work for me any better than the less expensive ones from Good Cook, but they sure are pretty. I cringe when I think about trying to clean peanut butter out of them, though. For some things, the old measuring spoons are better.
