Has anyone ever used or heard of narrow measuring spoons? They are supposed to eliminate spilling and wasting spices when measuring from narrow mouth jars. Also, does anyone have any tips other than special spoons to prevent the spilling?
I live in Los Angeles, California and have a set of stainless steel narrow measuring spoons that I bought in a local store called Sur La Table. Their website is surlatable.com and you will find they sell both oval and round measuring spoons for regular measuring and also spice measuring spoons, which are shaped like little narrow shovels with raised sides.
I have a tip for measuring extracts which come in those flat bottles which can tip over easily. Most of them have a paper or foil covering after you take the lid off. I poke a tiny little hole in the paper with the point of a sharp knife. I can still pour into a spoon but if the bottle turns over it will not spill.
I was always spilling liquid measures when using those spoons. I have discovered mini glasses that have tsp and Tbsp measures. They sell them in Bed, Bath & Beyond or a store called Raindew, by me. The best ones are glass, if you can find one as most are plastic. The plastic ones seem to never get really cleaned especially when measuring oils.
