Measuring Spoons - are there any on the market that aren't pure Chinese junk?

omotosando | Mar 19, 2012 10:04 PM

So based on all the good reviews at Amazon, I purchased the CIA Masters Collection Measuring Spoon Set

It turns out that they are your usual Chinese junk. Very flimsy -- so flimsy that the metal easily bends when you stick the spoon into a spice jar -- and with noticeable imperfections on the metal (i.e., the metal isn't completely smooth, making them hard to clean).

I'm beginning to despair about the possibility of obtaining decent quality small kitchen accessories - everything seems to come from China and be pure junk. Let's just hope there is nothing toxic in these spoons.
