Great tool to have for measuring small amounts. I just wish that the proper measures were on the spoons themselves rather than the cutesy smidgeon, dash, pinch.

Spoons in this size can be difficult to find. I was glad to find them here at a reasonable price and good quality. If you need the spoon size on the spoon itself, write in on the handle end with a sharpie.

Definitely a necessity.

These spoons are an easy investment in making sure your cheese attempt comes out right the first time. Especially for some cultures and additives (and rennet, of course) precision is so very necessary. I'm glad I picked up a set.

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.

Good product

These are excellent. Only complaint I have is I wish they had actual measurements on them like 1/4, 1/8, etc.

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

Handy Measuring

Rating:

Pros:
  • Good quality
Cons:
  • Actual measurements not printed on them
From: Seattle, WA
So I bought these without reading any of the reviews because, well, they are measuring spoons right? However, I expected that the actual measuring amounts would be imprinted but instead, it only had the smidgen, dash etc on them. Since many of the recipes I use call for actual measurements, it was a bit of a let down. However, the conversion is on the plastic bag they were shipped in so I keep it handy and the quality of the actual spoons is great. Even knowing what I know now, I would order again. :)

Measure Estimates

Rating:

Pros:
  • well made
  • once they are labeled
Cons:
  • it's a bit of work to label them
From: Blacksburg, VA
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.

These come in very handy for when you buy the larger bags of culture but they are also indispensable for creating small batches out of the single packets when You don't have enough milk for a whole recipe. Love these.

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!

Threes are great for measuring very small amounts of culture used for small batches. I do wish they were marked in the tsp. amount instead of dash, pinch ...

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!

I like the material. They are metal and heavy which makes them more handy. I bought it for cheesemaking, but it is very useful staff for bakery as well. Love them.

Perfect!

I purchased this product a few months ago and I have used these measuring spoons endlessly for a few batches of Camembert, and a Havarti-like cheese (room-temperature washed curd cheese). It is extremely helpful to have these. My only critique is that I wish the spoons also indicated what fraction of a teaspoon each spoon was, and to have it engraved on each. However, I will probably engrave them myself.

Quick way to remember the measures

From: Malaysia
I love this set of measuring spoons. They're sturdy and will outlive me. I might even write them into my Will! LOL



I don't bother looking at the descriptions on the spoons or doing any engraving. Here's how I remember the measures:



The spoons stack up very nicely, and all you have to do is remember two things:



1. The biggest is a quarter-tsp.

2. Every measure halves from that point.



So, a quarter - an eighth - a sixteenth - a thirty-second Go through it a couple of times and it'll be hammered into your head. Hope this helps.
