How To Use Measuring Spoons

Chef Remi Measuring Spoons

We’ve all seen recipes that ask for you to add a ‘pinch’ of this, or a ‘dash’ of that. Plenty of recipes even leave it up to you. How many times have you seen ‘salt, to taste’ in a recipe?

But, for certain recipes, especially for breads or cakes, there is a requirement for a much more rigid approach with precise measuring of ingredients.

Even the slightest error can product disastrous results.  I’ve ended up with soggy, unrisen bread in the past, all because I wasn’t accurate with my ingredient measuring.

I’ve already told you last week how invaluable a good set of measuring cups are. Today, I’m going to talk about measuring spoons.

Now, many people wonder if they need measuring spoons. After all, most recipes call for a tablespoon of this, or a teaspoon of that, and most people have those at home already.

The problem here is that the teaspoons and tablespoons you have in your kitchen are designed for eating with. They are cutlery.

This means that edges are rounded off and smooth, so you have the best experience when placing these utensils containing food in your mouth.

However, this also means these utensils are not great for measuring. A good set of measuring spoons will be shaped differently to cutlery spoons, which will allow you to measure much more accurately.

Here’s what to look for in a set of measuring spoons, and how to use them so you are guaranteed correct measures of ingredients, every time!

 

  • Choose measuring spoons where the spoon rim and handle are level for accurate measuring

When the spoon rim and handle are level, you will have the most accurate of measurements.

Simple dip your spoon into your ingredient and then bring up to eye level. The ingredient should be flush with the spoon rim and handle.

For dry ingredients, it’s even easier. Just swipe a clean knife blade over the surface to get the exact measurement.

 

  • Choose spoons that have a perfect circular shaped scoop

Cutlery tablespoons and teaspoons are usually elongated in shape. These can be difficult to use when trying to get into small jars and containers of ingredients.

Circular shaped scoops are much easier to get into every corner of even the smallest container.

  • Choose spoon sets that have very small measurements, such as 1/4 of a teaspoon, 1/8 of a teaspoon etc.

This is all about accuracy. How often have you seen a recipe call for a tiny amount of ingredient, such as 1/8 of a teaspoon?

So you proceed to use a normal cutlery teaspoon and try to ‘eyeball’ what an 1/8 of a spoon is – not accurate!

A good set of measuring spoons will, of course, have a teaspoon and tablespoon measurement, but look for sets that will also give you half a tablespoon, 1/4 of a teaspoon and even 1/8 of a teaspoon – you’ll be grateful you did!

Sue said: Hamburg pressing

Wow this press is the best I have ever tried. The weight makes it easy to press a burger but not too heavy to use. I was just making patties by hand because I didnt like other presses. No more now that I have this press.

Tracy Woytas said: Love it!

I've needed a new apple slicer for so long. I'm glad I found this one. I have arthritis and this makes it much easier to slice apples! My kids love apples and caramel dip. This makes it easy for them to slice their apples.

Paula said: Works better than my old set.

This set is a dream compared to my old set (they will be going in my yard sale). The measurements are very easy to read and I dont even have to get my reading glasses. The handles I like the best, my other set the handles were not very sturdy, these do not buckle under when full like my old set. My only wish was that the smallest one also had tablespoon measurements. I have used both hot and cold liquids, I even put a pound of butter in the medium one and melted it, the butter not the cups! So happy that I got these! thanks again Chef Remi!!!!!!!!!!!

Lollie said: See what you have been missing!

These grill mats are the best invention! Keeps the grill clean. Soft, or smaller foods don't fall through, or stick. Mats are easy cleaning in the dishwasher. Also great for baking cookies in the oven. Cookies slide right off! I am giving these as Christmas gifts. Highly recommend!

Jenny said: Very sturdy and Sharp Chef's Knife

I am very impressed with the way this knife is designed and the price is very affordable too. First time I got the knife, I could feel that this knife will be a great product because the handle feels strong and durable. The blade is sturdy and very sharp, I can cut meat and vegetables with ease. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and definitely will recommend Chef Remi products to all my friends and family.
