Why go for Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons

Updated on September 22, 2016

What are measuring spoons?

Measuring spoons are used to accurately measure an ingredient used in baking or cooking to have a better output. They are made out of plastics, metals, and other materials. To use a measuring spoon, you have to fill it until full for liquid ingredients and when using for dry ingredients, you will need a spatula to scrape the excess or level the ingredient to just fill in the space of the measuring spoon.

Do you measure in dash or pinch? You might want to achieve a better taste using the right measuring spoons for your recipe.

Why buy stainless steel measuring spoons?

When it comes to cleanliness, appliances and other kitchen utensils made out of stainless steel are the best. They are easier to clean and sanitize and they do not absorb germs because it does not have pores to store it. You may use damp cloth to wipe it after using and then wash it thoroughly before using again.

Stainless steels also fit any kitchen design and it matches any color or theme. They look more elegant because they are shiny unlike the plastic or wooden utensils. Other fascinating facts about stainless steels are it does not discolor or fade in time and does not affect the odor or taste of food. They also last longer than other materials.

What to consider in buying stainless steel measuring spoons?

Material

Stainless steels also come in varied types and some products claim that it is made out of stainless steel even if it is not. Check the label if it has an 18/8 or 18/10 level because this will determine the amount of chromium and nickel on the steel (18/8 means it has 18 % chromium and 8% nickel). Also, check the manufacturer if they have credible records of offering quality products. I have seen 1Easy Life Direct’s stainless measuring spoons set on Amazon and they have quite a good record with the 4.9 stars rating and positive reviews from buyers.

Measuring Sizes

Baking and Cooking recipes nowadays have improved thereby requiring for other measurements like ¾ teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon. This may be to achieve a more tasteful finished product and a better texture particularly in baking. Check for a set that will provide you with more measuring options other than the traditional ¼ teaspoon, ½ teaspoon, 1 tsp. and 1tbsp. Measuring spoons are designed to come in sets and are usually tied together in a ring for easier hanging or keeping preventing it from losing one or more spoons from the set.

Rounded measuring spoons do not fit in easily on jars of spices so you might as well want to choose an elongated shape set.

Design for Easier Usage

When cooking or baking, you might not want to have a hard time spilling ingredients or reading measurements. Choose stainless steel measuring spoons that are properly engraved with readable markings and that will surely stay for a long period of time. Some measuring spoons were also designed comfortable for use with the forefingers and can be placed down on the counter while measuring liquid ingredients without tipping. The shape is also one thing to consider, narrow shaped measuring spoons are more recommended that round shaped measuring spoons because they can go through dry powders easier.

I hope this information has helped you as it did to me. Cooking and baking are one of the regular activities we do at home and I just find this topic to be a helpful one to moms like me.
