Pros:clear measurment labels; cleans up well
The Bottom Line: Spend a couple of extra dollars, ditch the plastic, and go with stainles steel measuring spoons. Clear labeling and sturdy design that cleans up well and performs great.
I've gone through several sets of measuring spoons. I'd always bought the plastic ones because they were a dollar or two, but had the issue of the measurment numbers coming off over time. I had one set with the measurments raised up in the plastic, but lost the teaspoon somehow, plus it was sometimes difficult to read. So I finally decided to purchase a metal set and chose Farberware. Thus far, it's been well worth the extra few dollars.
The Farberware set of 4 measuring spoons are all stainless steel. It comes with 1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, and 1/4 teaspoon. The measurements are clearly indented in the metal, along with their mL equivilents. All four spoons are held together on an oval-shaped ring which can be easily pried apart to separate the spoons, if need be.
There are more expensive measuring spoon sets out there, but for around $4.00 to $6.00 (depends on where you purchase), it's a fine set. They seem to be pretty well made, with even edges and are sturdy enough to not bend easily. The spoons themselves have no seams or crevaces where food could really get stuck. This also makes them very easy to clean.
The stainless steel they Farberware measuring spoons are made of are holding up well. I've had them several months now and see no signs of real wear to them. I always hand wash them in the sink, never in the dishwasher, although the package does state they are dishwasher safe.
When I measure out ingredients with my Farberware measuring spoons, it's so nice to be able to easily and clearly read the measurments. One set I had in the past had a couple more measurements in addition to the four this set has, but really, I don't miss not having those extra ones.
As for storage, they stack up so nice and neatly nestled in each other. They take up very little room in my drawer.
If anyone I knew stated they needed a new set of measuring spoons, I'd immediatly pipe up and recommend a set of stainless steel, and mention how pleased I am with my Farberware set. They're a few dollars more than plastic sets, but there is no worry about the numbers/measurments coming off, or any difficulty reading it. I'm kicking myself for not purhasing this set years ago!
