How to Use Measuring Spoons and Cups?

Measuring Spoons Buyers’ Guide

What is tsp measurement?

A teaspoon measurement refers to a cooking measure of volume, often used in cooking recipes. The metric system defines teaspoon as 5 ml, which is 5 cm3; and that is ​1⁄3 UK/Canadian metric tablespoon. In the United States, the teaspoon as a unit of culinary measure refers to ​1⁄3 tablespoon, which is 4.92892159375 ml; so ​1⁄6 fl oz, ​1⁄48 cup, and ​1⁄768 liquid gallon. A teaspoon can be measured using measuring spoons. Especially when it comes to baking, it is vital that you use the exact amounts indicated in the recipes, or it could lead to disastrous results. Using your eye to measure baking soda or salt approximately might result in a cake not rising, or tasting horrible.

How to measure a teaspoon?

Many recipes worldwide use a teaspoon as a unit of culinary measurement. But, a teaspoon does not mean you can use the teaspoon from your kitchen cupboard for measurements. A teaspoon is a very specific measurement, that should be done using measuring spoons. Most recipes also include measurements such as ⅛ teaspoon which cannot be approximated without measuring spoons. Before starting to bake with measuring spoons, you should learn to distinguish between a heaped, rounded, and scant spoon. A heaped spoon requires you to pile as much of the dry ingredients as you can on the spoon. A rounded spoon can be achieved by creating a rounded hump on top of the spoon. For a scant spoon, just fill the spoon right below the brim. These apply to dry ingredients because liquid ingredients usually require a level spoon.

How to measure a tablespoon?

A tablespoon is used as a culinary measurement unit of volume. One US tablespoon is equal to 4 fluid drams, 3 teaspoons or ½ US fluid ounce, which is around 14.8 ml. A metric tablespoon is always exactly equal to 15 ml, which is 0.51 US fl oz. As you can see, it is nearly impossible to accurately measure this amount without the usage of measuring spoons. When cooking or baking with dry ingredients, the recipe may indicate the use of a level tablespoon which is usually measured by filling the spoon and scraping the top surface to be level. In contrast, a recipe may also call for a heaped, rounded, or scant spoon. By piling as much of the dry ingredients as you can on the spoon, you will achieve a heaped spoon. A rounded spoon is made by creating a rounded smaller hump on top of the spoon. A scant spoon requires you to fill the spoon right below the brim.
