A Kitchen Teaspoon is not a Medicine Teaspoon – Use a measuring spoon

CIA Masters Collection 6 Piece Measuring Spoon SetIt’s flu season time and everyone is turning to “over the counter” medications. When measuring out cough and cold medicine from the bottle, please DON’T use a regular kitchen spoon for measurement. When a bottle of cough syrup says one teaspoon they don’t mean a teaspoon from the cutlery drawer. The differences between flatware spoons volume capacities varies widely. According to this report from the Pediatrics Journal not picking the right spoon led to around 40% chance of error in dosage. It is recommended using spoons that are marked with millimeters (ml) just like used for baking and cooking. The proper measurement for a teaspoons is 5ml and tablespoon is 15ml. Wrong spoon mean 3 times the dosage which could mean bad news. You can see how half tablespoon measurements are even more difficult to eyeball without the right tool.

Trying using something like the set in the picture above and link below. Just make sure the edges are safe for little mouths.

Teak Wood Noodle Soup Ramen Spoons

Teak Wood Noodle Soup Ramen Spoons Hard Wood Utensil Premium QualityOur last post we talked about using a Spork for eating Ramen. And we talked about it in the context of instant Ramen, but if you are going to eat a proper bowl of Ramen noodles then you should use the proper cutlery. Wooden chopsticks are a given but what about the spoon? How about something other than the traditional plastic spoon?

From “Teako”, these Teak Wood soup spoons are high end flatware. Hand carved from natural sustainable teak wood, this is a environmentally friendly product. No harmful chemicals are used to treat the wood, it has a natural preservative but that means that is not dishwasher safe. But the look of these spoons hardwood deserves the extra care.

Ramen Fork/Spoon in Stainless Steel from the Museum of Modern Art

Ramen Fork Spoon - Stainless Steel - Museum of Modern ArtAh Ramen, not sure which I’ve eaten more of: Ramen or Kraft Cheese and Macaroni? Ramen in instant form is the perfect food for when you don’t want to cook and really aren’t too fussy about what you are going to eat. In College I lived off the stuff. It is a two piece of flatware meal, you need both fork for the noodles and spoon for the broth (lest you slurp from the bowl). Chopsticks don’t cut it at all in my humble opinion.

In comes this wonderful piece of cutlery that I would classify as a Foon from the Museum of Modern Art. The Ramen Fork/Spoon is made from stainless steel and will handle all your Ramen eating needs. Made of dish-washer safe stainless steel it is 7 3/4″ long x 2″ wide x 1 1/2″ diameter.
