Sur La Table Spice Measuring Spoons
The best measuring spoons
These rectangular spoons are sturdier than most and very accurate. And even the largest spoon fits easily into narrow spice jars.
The Sur La Table Spice Measuring Spoons are our top pick because they’re impressively accurate and durable. This sturdy set—made of heavy-gauge stainless steel—can take a beating without bending. The rectangular scoops slip easily to the bottom of most spice jars, and unlike other spoons of this shape, these ones don’t trap food in their corners. The ring that keeps these spoons together allows you to hang them on a hook, and we found the ring easy to open and close. Still, it can be a hassle to detach the spoons every time you use them. (If you want a set that’s extremely easy to separate, consider our also-great pick, the Prepworks by Progressive Magnetic Measuring Spoons.)
Prepworks by Progressive Magnetic Measuring Spoons
Double-ended and easy to use
Double-ended spoons allow you to measure the same quantity of two different ingredients without stopping to rinse. And a magnet is embedded in each handle, making these spoons easy to separate and to store. But they’re not as durable as a heftier, 100 percent stainless steel set.
If you don’t need to hang your spoons on a hook and don’t need them to be so heavy-duty, the Prepworks by Progressive Magnetic Measuring Spoons have a couple of features we love. They’re double-ended, with an oval end and a round end, so you can switch between dry and wet ingredients without having to pause to rinse. These spoons are also conveniently held together by magnets, making them easy to keep together in a drawer and to separate when you want to use them. Although the round ends on these are nearly as accurate as the Sur La Table spoons, the oval ends aren’t as dead-on. The Prepworks spoons also bend more easily than the Sur La Table spoons, but they’re still strong enough to handle most tasks—ours have held up well through years of long-term testing.
