Although modern spice companies use wide-mouth jars (e.g. San Francisco’s fabulous Spice Ace) few kitchens are complete without a decent complement of narrow-necked McCormick bottles. The ones with openings too small to fit even the 1/2″ and 1/4″ teaspoon measuring spoons.
Problems solved with these made to fit spice bottles measuring spoons..
They’re just the right size to dig all the way down to the bottom of narrow jars. And they work just fine with wet measuring too.
They’re available at Amazon. I got these at Borough Kitchen, the everything under the sun cookshop at London’s Borough Market. The helpful and friendly proprietor Justin Kowbel also turned me on to a couple of other things new to the gadget-loving SpecD kitchens. (Faithful readers will appreciate that that’s no easy task.)
Why didn’t someone think of this sooner? Or if it’s old news, why did I have to go all the way across the Atlantic to find out about them?
Verdict: worth it.Print This Post
