What Is Measuring Spoon
The measuring spoon is a spouted measuring device that holds liquid and measures it. The measuring spoon has an open neck which lets the liquid flow out of the bowl of the measuring spoon. The measuring spoon is often used to measure dry ingredients. Measuring spoons are also used for measuring soft solids.
The bowl of the measuring spoon has a rounded edge which prevents the spoon from getting stuck in the bowl of the measuring spoon. Measuring spoons are also used to measure oil and mayonnaise. Measuring spoons are usually made of plastic, ceramic, stainless steel or glass.

How to Use Measuring Spoons
Fill the measuring cup up with water until its level reaches just below the top rim of the measuring spoon’s bowl. This will ensure your measuring spoon doesn’t get too full when you pour liquids into it.
Pour the liquid being measured into the center of the measuring spoon. Measure by scooping up the contents of the measuring spoon using one hand while keeping the other hand on the side of the measuring spoon (to prevent spills).
Once the measurement has been taken, remove your fingers from the side of the measuring tool and let go of the measuring spoon.
To keep the measuring spoon clean, wipe it over with a wet towel after each use.
If possible, rinse the measuring spoon under running water before storing it away.
How To Store Measuring Spoons
So, how to store measuring spoons? Here are the some guides to do it:
1. Hang them on a knife rack
If you have metal measuring spoons, just place them on a magnetic knife rack. You’ll always be able to see what you need at a glance this way. Consider hanging a knife rack on the bottom of your cabinet if you don’t already have one and aren’t sure whether you want one. The spoons will be grouped but not visible in this manner.
2. Suspend them from the backs of cabinets
I like this set-up by Chelsea of the blog Two Twenty One. Repurpose a small hook set (often used for keys) at the back of your cabinet to hang up your measuring instruments just where you can see them, and behind the other baking supplies so they’re always around.
3. Place them within the cabinet doors
The inside of your cabinet door is useful for a variety of things, but measuring cups are totally at home! Kristin of Modish & Main added an extra-smart touch by using blackboard paper to keep measurement equivalents accessible.
4. Secure them to the containers
If you often use the same measuring cups for the same components (hello, flour and sugar! ), save time by attaching them directly to the relevant canisters.
5. Make use of a pegboard
Whether you hang your pegboard inside a cabinet door or on the wall, the small hooks and variable spacing are ideal for measuring spoons and cups, as well as other baking utensils.
6. Pile ’em on.
A kitchen utility rack (or one designed for towels or a curtain rod) with a couple of hooks may be a nice way to get measuring cups and spoons out of a drawer and easily accessible. It doesn’t hurt that Yvonne of Stone & Gable has extra-pretty measuring spoons. Take note of her spare pair, which is stowed away in the hanging basket.
7. Make use of tubes as hangers.
Try tubes instead of hooks if hooks aren’t your thing. Marji of Ashbee Design came up with this smart hack, which employs PVC pipe tubes installed on a cabinet door as small holsters for measuring equipment.
