I think that I probably own most of the items in the Nigella Living Kitchen Range, I absolutely love the range, and I think that it all looks very classy and sleek, and very high-quality. The items will match any kitchen decor and kitchen appliances, and wil appeal to everyone.
The measuring spoons set comes in a choice of 3 colours; glossy holly berry red, calm cream, and luscious liquorice. I have a set in the cream, and a set in the red.
I bought these measuring spoons in particular as I am collecting the Nigella Living Kitchen range. Yes they are much more expensive than the majority of the measuring spoon sets out there, but I figured that as they match my other items and as I use measuring spoons an awful lot I'd get them.
Each measuring spoon set is a set of 6 spoons, containing; a tablespoon - 15ml, a dessertspoon - 10ml, a teaspoon - 5ml, a 1/2 teaspoon - 2.5ml, a 1/4 teaspoon - 1.25ml and a pinch.
The dimensions are clearly marked on the handle of each spoon.
The spoons are all made of lightweight melamine, and they all come all attached on a little ring. You can choose to keep them on the ring and hang them up, or just keep them on the ring in the drawer so that you don't lose any of them. I actually took the rings off and keep them all seperate in the kitchen drawer, as I find it easier and quicker to use them this way. The ring itself is easy to open and close should you want to keep the spoons on it, but need to take individual spoons off to use.
The spoons are really lightweight and really easy to use, and they are dishwasher safe. Mine have been in the dishwasher more times than I care to remember and are still as good as new.
I find that the 'spoon shape' of these measuring spoons, as opposed to the 'scoop shape' that most measuring spoons normally come in, is a lot easier to fit into smaller jars and pots, and so is therefore much easier to use.
I also find that the fairly long handle on these measuring spoons compared to the shorter squatter handles that you normally get on measuring spoons also makes these easier and more comfortable to use.
I have found the spoons to be accurate as nothing that I have baked or cooked has had the wrong quantity of the ingredient added when using these. I have had a cheaper set of measuring spoons in the past which appeared to be way off with the measurements!
I've had loads of use out of both of my sets of measuring spoons and I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend them to anyone.
Measuring Spoons available in a range of colours.
