5 Favorites: Wooden Measuring Spoons

Janet Hall November 01, 2013

Maybe it’s the way wood feels to touch or how it develops a patina over time, but there’s no denying the appeal of a wooden spoon. I stir pasta sauces and mix cookie doughs with wooden spoons. Why not use wooden spoons to measure salt, baking soda, and spices? Of late, several workshops seem to thinking along these lines. Here, a round-up of wooden measuring spoons.

Above L and R: Crafted in Portland from a variety of found wood, no two sets of Handmade Measuring Spoons are exactly alike; $35 for a set of four in standard measuring spoon sizes, from tablespoon to 1/4 teaspoon, at Alder & Co. 

 

Above: Made from plantation-farmed wood, Chabatree’s Teak Measuring Spoons are $20 for the set of four through Mercant no. 4. 

 

Above: Kitchen Carvings uses a selection of woods, such as cherry and walnut, to make wooden measuring spoons in measuring cup sizes–from 1/4 cup to 1 cup. The Hand Carved 1/2-cup Wooden Measuring Spoon, shown here in cherry finished with beeswax and mineral oil, is $27 through Kitchen Carvings’ Etsy Shop.

Above: The Duo Wood Measuring Spoon features a tablespoon measure on one end and a teaspoon measure on the other; $19.65 at Windrush.

 

Above: Handmade in Woodstock, Connecticut, Meb’s Kitchenwares Wood Measuring Spoons are available in black walnut, curly maple, and cherry. The measurements are branded into the wood so they’ll never come off; $130 for a set of four.
