Adjust-A-Spoon

adjustaspoon.JPG

Do you ever tire of fumbling around with a ring of measuring spoons? Well, this Adjust-A-Spoon was designed for you! Made of stainless steel and dishwasher safe, you can slide your way to your desired measurement with what appears to be a minimum amount of hassle. I could definitely see myself replacing my set of spoons with one of these when they finally wear out.

I've been using these for the past 6 months and actually find them rather annoying. It's hard to get everything out and you have to take the slider off the spoon part to clean. I'm actually looking for a plunger style measuring tool which Alton Brown uses on Good Eats.

Adam:

Pampered Chef has had these available for several years now, as those of us who have hosted a show know. But they're not as sturdy looking. Merely plastic.

Kat:

I've had one for years...

Pampered Chef has had plastic versions of these forever, but it figures that KitchenAid would think of a way to make them even pricier! (Not that I don't love KitchenAid - my mixer rocks.)

Adam Pratt:

I used to use the Pampered Chef ones until they got brittle and cracked. Then I "upgraded" to these versions from KitchenAid but within 2 months the metal started to corrode and streak in strange ways. I threw them away and now I'm trying measuring spoons from Oxo which are a pain to manage in the drawer. Next I'd like to try the new ones from Chefn: http://www.chefn.com/products/gadgets/sleekstor_spoons.html

Dana Parker:

Don't throw away your set of individual spoons. These are good for dry ingredients but worthless for liquids and things like mayo, sour cream, and peanut butter.

A good cook needs more than one measuring spoon and cup set anyway, at least one for liquids and one for dry ingredients (especially for baking).

I might not be much of a cook but I've always found that the 'just wing it' style of cooking has served me well. At least, it hasn't killed me (yet) ;)

I'm sorry but I have to agree with the other commenters. As nice as these look and as good an idea as they are... In practice - they suck. Get a desent set of non-reactive measuring spoons. (non-reactive so they don't force chemical reactions in your food products and spoil the taste, or so they dont rust if you use a salty based food like umm.. salt)
