Measuring spoons inaccuracy?

lololo | Jan 19, 2011 01:56 PM

I am quite perplexe right now?

I have 2 sets of measuring spoons and they dont offer the same volume for the same number of millimeters? If I compare the 1ml (1/4 tea spoon), one set ends up more in the like of an half (2ml or 2.5) of a tea spoon (of 5ml). And when a put two half of tea spoon on a tea spoon it spill up, alot...

So, I dont know what set is accurate. I went to a kitchen store today and me and the clerk we did the same test with sugar on two sets : they did not calibrate the same?!?

Are you aware of this problem and is there a company tha produce accurate measuring spoons?

Best regards,
