I have always loved to bake but over the past few years I have started to enjoy cooking as well. I have baking down but I'm still learning a lot about cooking, which is why I need recipes that include exact measurements. I'm not quite confident enough to try "eye-balling" ingredients like my husband does.
I used to have some of the plastic measuring spoons but I put them in the dishwasher and they melted, even though the box said that they were dishwasher safe. I don't have to worry about that happening to my X-Chef Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons.
They are dishwasher safe but I've decided to hand-wash mine in the hopes that it will prolong their quality. There are four different sizes: 1 tablespoon, 1/2 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon and 1/2 teaspoon, basically all you need for small amounts of ingredients.
They fit easily inside one another which makes storage extremely easy. I am really excited about having these measuring spoons in my kitchen. They are going to get a lot of use! I can't wait to try out some new recipes! Do you have any recommendations?
