It’s that time of year to start your holiday baking! And what baking and most cooking really needs is a really good set of measuring spoons. Now, we are big fans of America’s Test Kitchen and they recently declared that the Cuisipro Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon Set was their favorite.
This is a set of 5 Spoons: 1/8, ¼, ½, 1 tsp, 1 tbsp. Or for the metric folks out there: 0.625, 1.25, 2.5, 5 ml. Made of stainless steel that is dishwasher safe.
They have curved handles allow the spoons to sit securely on the counter without tipping over and a narrow spoon design that allows them to fit nicely into spice jars.
The measurements are permanently stamped on the spoon handles and they all nest for storage and attach to a removable loop!
It’s that time of year to carve up the bird. And you really do need a good fork to do that. Now Chef’s forks just don’t seem to have the sharp pointed tip and curve that the classic American carving fork has. And that you need!
And the OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Carving Fork is probably your best bet for being that carving and serving fork for this year’s turkey or baked tofu.
This fork is made of dishwasher safe stainless steel with a soft, comfortable, non-slip grip, even when wet. Those two sharp tines on the fork spear and hold the food firmly while carving and then with the curve allow for the serving of your sliced delight.
This is classic American cutlery, not those silly french cooking forks!
Thanks to Pam for alerting us to the interesting design for cutlery by Zinello.
Zinello are promoting sustainability by using a sleek, streamlined design and refined shapes. So, less metal?
Constructed from dishwasher safe 18/10 stainless steel, to resist rust and corrosion they use electroplating. This provides high resistance to wear and abrasion and resistance to most household cleaning products and perspiration. As well as hypoallergenic, ecological and improved corrosion resistance. They must have a very robust electroplating method?
A set consists of 6 dinner knives, 6 dinner forks, 6 tablespoons and 6 teaspoons.
We have been reading a lot of books lately here at the Cutlery Review, mostly Chef biographies. And we always note when they talk about what equipment they take to a kitchen. The infamous knife roll is of course expected but the “Spoon Roll” was a new one for us. If you are doing any plating or saucing you need a decent spoon or two.
The Mercer Culinary 7-Piece Plating Spoons set looks great. It consists of a Saucier Spoon, 9-Inch Solid Spoon, 7 7/8-Inch Solid, 7 7/8-Inch Slotted 7 7/78-inch precision drawing Spoon, and 7 7/8-inch perforated Spoon. All this is bundled up in a heavy duty roll to take the kitchen or cooking class. The flatware is made of 18-8 stainless steel.
