All in one

I absolutely love it when I can replace a whole set of stuff with one simple item that does all the jobs. This pair of adjust-a-teaspoon and adjust-a-tablespoon do just that. You get two spoons, but you can slide one piece up and down to change it from full to half to quarter to third and so on. Instead of taking up half a drawer with a mess of measuring spoons, just have two.

Sturdy and good for spices

This review says it all: "I didn't expect them to be so sturdy and the engraving is so easy to read. I also love that they are stainless steel, instead of plastic or aluminum. I've been updating all my spices to organic, but it bugged me that my measuring spoons didn't fit into the jars." The rectangular shape of these spoons means they fit into almost any jar you need. It's absolutely what you want.

Double sided!

There are two major things that I love about this set of measuring spoons: they're double-sided and they come with a leveler. Each size has both a round spoon and a rectangular spoon, so no matter what you're using them for you can find the shape that's right. I also like having the leveler easy at hand. When I don't have one I'm far too prone to just let it be a little bit too full and throw off my whole recipe, so it's a great addition.

There are three major bonuses to this set of spoons: you get significantly more measurement options than most sets, it comes with a tiny whisk (which is the cutest thing ever created) and it comes with a leveler. The reviews love it: "I purchased this as an additional set. I always find myself needing a different size or more of one size. The leveler is great and the little whisk works awesome for mixing just a touch of liquid in or making sure the dry goods are nicely mixed. I would and probably will end up with another set."

Low cost, big reward

This is our first plastic set of spoons, and you might be hesitant to go for plastic when there are stainless steel available. But I'm here to tell you: these are sturdy spoons that hold up to almost anything. They have good thick handles that are great for heavier recipes like cookie dough. They also have measurements in both metric and imperial so you don't have to look up conversions!


One of my least favorite cooking experiences is going to grab a measuring spoon and having to paw through an entire drawer of spoons to find the one I want. That's why I particularly like this set. Each spoon has its own colorful handle. I find what I'm looking for so much easier, and I know exactly which spoon I want at a glance. Plus they're stainless steel, sturdy, good for any ingredient, and dishwasher friendly.

Bells and whistles

This is an inexpensive set of measuring spoons, but it has a lot going for it. They're made of sturdy plastic, they have color-coding on the handles, they snap together for storage, the writing doesn't come off after washing, and it comes with a leveler. I truly can't think of anything else you'd need.

Get it all

If you're in the market for measuring spoons, chances are you might want some measuring cups too. This set gives you all of it: a full set of spoons and a full set of cups, in stainless steel, with nice grip handles that are color-coded. It even comes with two rings you can use to hold all the spoons and cups together for easy storage.


This set of spoons has a really cool solution for messy drawers: magnets! To stack easily, the spoons are magnetically attracted to each other. It works great! On top of that, they have tons of the other features we've already mentioned: double-sided, color-coded, and they come with a leveler.

The works

My favorite thing about this set is that it comes with a magnet that lists out common conversions. No more pulling out my phone every time I need to look something up. I also love the wide, flat handles of the measuring cups: they're easy to grip and they even have a little tab on the far side if you need to use two hands.
