Two things to look for in these spoons: Polished bowls (rather than the matte brushed finish) keep spice powders from sticking so you can “double-dip” as you measure out your ingredients. Strong magnets help these spoons stay definitively together in the drawer. The double-sided feature makes it convenient for certain containers, or for using dry ingredients on one side, and liquid on the other. They sit on the counter without falling over, and they don’t take up much space.

6. Cuisipro Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon Set[amazon box=”B00004SU1I”]
Their unique shape allows them to slide into smaller spice or herb jars easily. They have their measurements stamped on the handle, so you won’t worry about that getting washed off. They have a sturdy, secure clip ring keeping them together and organized. Their shape is a bit unusual, but everyone who has seen them asked where I got them and remarked how cool they looked. They are strong, but of course, put enough weight behind anything and they’ll bend – I’d imagine if you tried using them to lift your stand mixer they’d bend.
