Measuring Spoons-How to Use 'Em

My favorite measuring spoon set.

Measuring spoons are used to measure both dry ingredients and wet ingredients. Shown above is my favorite stainless steel set that I bought from Williams Sonoma a few years back. They have a reflective, polished finish and have really kept the shine even after several washings.

* Measuring spoons are usually plastic, melamine, or metal.
* Measuring spoons usually come in a set in the following sizes: 1 tablespoon,
1 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon,
 1/4 teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon. You can also buy additional odd-measure spoons that come in 2 teaspoons, 1 1/2 tablespoons and 2 tablespoon sizes.

Always use the appropriate size spoon that is asked for in the recipe.
* Measure liquids by filling the spoon full to the top.
 * Measure dry ingredients by filling the spoon and then leveling off the top with the straight-edge of a kitchen knife.
