    Mini Measuring Spoons

    These are those great little size you can't find elsewhere, especially in a retail store! 1/4 tsp, 1/8th tsp, 1/16th tsp and 1/32nd tsp- that's a smidgen!

    Great tool

    A very handy tool. I have found that half a pack of mesophilic and thermophilic culture is 1 tad.


    Essential equipment!

    These measuring spoons are indispensibke for measuring out small quantities of cultures, additives, rennet, etc. I know I'd over-measure without them costing me quality of cheese AND money! I just either keep the plastic bag that the spoons came in which has the actual teaspoon measurement printed on an attached label or mark the measurement on the spoon with a fine point permanent marer. "Problem" solved. Quality product and inexpensuve, will definitely pay for itself.

    Measure Estimates

    • well made
    • once they are labeled
    • it's a bit of work to label them
    Yup! They need to be labeled. Lacking an analytic lab, I used the various unlabeled spoons to fill a standard (read randomly purchased and blindly trusted) teaspoon measure that I've had on hand for decades. The following estimates are probably as accurate as any kitchen measures. From smallest to largest spoons:

    'smidgen' 1/20 tsp;

    'pinch' 1/12 tsp;

    'dash' 1/7 tsp;

    'tad' 1/4 tsp.

    I used an inexpensive vibrating engraver (~$18 from the home improvement store) that was already on hand to mark each of the spoons. At least now we all finally know what a smidgen is.

    Mini Measuring Spoon Set

    These are very nice, heavy duty stainless steel measuring spoons. I think they''re cute with the titles of "pinch", "dash", etc, I just wish that they also had the actual measurement on them. I actually bought them for my daughters to make itty bitty recipes that fit in teeny tiny pans. However, now I feel like I need to put labels on each spoon so that the true measurement is on them.

    Cute idea, though!
