Dennis J. Marko "DennyJMark": My wife needed a 1/8 teaspoon measure for a recipe. The smallest we had was 1/4 teaspoon. This set replaced the one we had.
Dinakar Sarma "Dino": These measuring spoons are accurate, and include 1/8 tsp measure, as well as 1/2 TB measure. Very handy to have around. The handles are thick and chunky. The loop that holds them together will easily snap on or off. The loop is also LARGE, which means that if you have pot hooks above you, they will quite happily hang from said hooks.As with the measuring cups of the same variety, I don't think that the numbers will stay brightly coloured, as they're on a raised surface, but since the surface is raised, you can still tell what size you're working with.Bonus feature: since these are plastic, a tiny drop of oil will work to keep them clean if you're measuring something sticky, like peanut butter, maple syrup, or corn syrup. The ovular shape makes it so that they will most likely fit into the mouths of most spice jars. I have another set of measuring spoons that are made of metal, and are perfectly round. The perfectly round shape will not fit into my smaller spice jars. Boo. These, however, with the oval shape, sneak right in.
DIYDanielle "DIYDanielle": These do the trick, but the writing on one of the spoons rubbed off already. I had that issue with the last set so this might just be typical. I just think the metal ones might be better where the measurements are etched into the metal.
D. Wortham: I'm all for good quality tools for whatever job you are doing. I'll buy cheap stuff to get by with but it is always just to get by till I can afford something of quality that will be a pleasure to use and work with.As I already have a set I am very pleased with I was happy to see these spoons appear on the Vine for review. If you cook much you've run into the problem of having to wash spoons to measure more than one ingredient so having a second set on hand can be pretty convenient.Pros:The plastic is fairly thick which translates into sturdy spoons.Handles are short - good for taking up less space in the drawer.The ring makes it easy to use one spoon without other spoons getting in the way.Easy to remove and reattach individual spoons.Interior of spoon bowl is smooth for easier cleaning while handle is textured for better grip.Cons:They are plastic.The size labels are small and hard to read.Handles are short - not so good for dipping into taller bags/containers.Other reviewers have noted that the size labels come off almost immediately with use. At least one person said they could scratch the labels off. I tried that but the label remained intact, even with a lot of pressure scraping at it. I assume the set that person got came from a different factory or got by QC. These spoons have a lifetime warranty, as others have noted, and OXO is a good brand as far as I know with a reputation to maintain.I mentioned that the labels are hard to read. Boy howdy, I couldn't really tell what they said without getting my reading glasses out. They are color coded so, as long as the color doesn't come off, I guess you could get by with that without too much trouble. Of course, as long as you've got the whole set together telling the difference in sizes won't be a label issue anyway if you use them often enough.If you want something better than the 99 cent ones from Wal-Mart then these are probably going to meet your needs. I think the short handles are a real drawback but that really depends on how you use them in your kitchen. They certainly seem sturdy.Personally, I prefer the stainless steel set I bought in 2008 that still look brand new and still have size labels that look like they did when I first got them:MIU Trendy Stainless-Steel 5-Piece Measuring Spoon Set.
E. Byers: So one of the biggest complaints on this product was the markings wearing off, sometimes very fast. We were victim of this with a set of the OXO measuring cups, they lost their markings and it's very hard to see what they are.However with the newest set of OXO measuring cups, and with these measuring spoons, we haven't had any issues. The markings are raised up, so even if the markings had come of (they haven't) you would be able to tell what it was still. They've been through the dishwasher multiple times, and still there, so I think they've finally fixed their issue.Other than that, these are great measuring spoons, easily pulling off the ring without having to open the entire ring up, and work great like I expect OXO products to.
