Crosby & Taylor (formerly Tin Woodsman) Pewter Measuring Cups and Spoons - The Perfect Gift for Your Favorite Cook
Perfect Gift for the Hard to Shop For Person
Whether I am trying to shop for family or friends, or give someone an idea for myself, it seems as if it has become increasingly more difficult as the years go by. When I saw the Tin Woodsman Pewter Measuring Cups and Spoons on Paula Deen's Cooking Show, I just knew I had to have them. Thanks to my wonderful family, they are now prominently displayed in my kitchen! And they are a fabulous conversation piece- I just love them!!
The Tin Woodsman Pewter (now known as Crosby & Taylor) is so lovely to look at, and the measuring cups and spoons make such a great display, I can't imagine hiding them away like all my other plastic and metal measuring tools. They are accurate for both solids and liquids, so they are something that gets used nearly every day in my kitchen. Useful AND gorgeous? Who wouldn't be THRILLED to receive these as a gift??? Even the most hard to please cook in your family would be delighted to receive these kitchen tools!
Beauty and Function
The Crosby and Taylor Pewter Sets are all handmade from lead-free pewter, so no worries using them when whipping up your favorite recipe. And because they are pewter, they need no polishing, and will last forever. I have had mine for years, and they clean up beautifully. All that they require is a little warm soap and water, and they continue to sparkle. Also, they are very easy to use, as the handles are plenty long. There is some weight to them, but not too much where it would make them difficult to hold or too heavy. I would be remiss if I did not mention that the measurements on the handles can be a little hard to read at first (it might be my old eyes). But, once I became familiar with each set, I learned which spoon or cup was which size, and almost never have to check the handle for the measurement.
The Crosby and Taylor Pewter Measuring Cup Set includes 4 measuring spoons - 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1 cup. If you select a gift set, it includes a display post,
The Crosby and Taylor Pewter Measuring Spoon Set includes 4 measuring spoons - 1/4 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, 1 teaspoon, and 1 tablespoon. If you select a gift set, it includes a post from which to display these lovelies.
A Pattern to FIt Every Decor and Style
Both the Crosby and Taylor Measuring Cups and Spoons are available in a myriad of patterns, so it's easy to find one that will match your decor and lifestyle. For example, they come in the following patterns: Angel, Fleur de Lys, Vineyard (my personal favorite), Dragonfly, Bird, Mother, Moose, Fish, Heart to Heart, Celtic, Heart, and Bamboo.
So as you can see, there is a style that will please any cook, both men and women alike. Because they are all so beautiful, the hardest thing might be picking just one!!
Perfect Gift for Any Occasion
So the next time you are racking your brain, and trying to figure out the perfect gift for that hard to shop for person in your life, whether it's for their Birthday, Valentine's Day, Bridal Shower, Wedding, Christmas, or just a plain ole 'Thanks for All You Do For Me" Gift, consider the Crosby and Taylor (Tin Woodsman) Pewter Measuring Cups and Spoons.
