Proper Teaspoon to Tablespoon Equipment

There are many cute teaspoon and tablespoon sets out there… but it’s important that you get a good set for baking and precise measurements.

When purchasing (or digging out from your current equipment) make sure your tablespoons and teaspoons are dent free, and have a good “scrape-able top”.

A level top is important so that you can properly submerge into dry ingredients and scrape off excess (more on that in the next section).

How to Measure Teaspoons and Tablespoons

Depending on what you’re measuring (wet or dry ingredients) you may find it helpful to measure accurately… especially when using teaspoons and tablespoons in baking.

Baking is very precise, overfilling or under-filling a teaspoon or tablespoon can be the difference in making a perfect cake, or one that falls in the center.

Measuring Teaspoons and Tablespoons:

  1. Decipher how many teaspoons or tablespoons you need.
  2. If using dry ingredients, submerge teaspoon or tablespoon in the dry ingredient. Fill the spoon until mounding over. Then scrape excess off with the flat end of a butter knife to level. 
  3. If using wet ingredients, fill to the top. It is ideal to measure wet ingredients over a bowl to catch any spillage.
