Customer Reviews

Simple to use and simple to clean.

The spoons can easily fit in regular size spice jars because they're narrow.

Best measuring spoon I have ever owned.

I have been using another brand of spice jar friendly spoons and only recently discovered that they were off quite a bit in the measurements. Out they went and enter this Amco set. I measured each and every one against a very reliable set and they were right on target. They also sit perfectly on the coutertop when filled, which is wonderful. My only complaint is that the sizes imprinted on the handle are not etched deeply enough and it is not easy to read in 4 of the 6 spoons, but that is not critical, just a little annoying.

I really like Amco measuring cups and spoons (as well as their cooking utensils). All are sturdy and well-constructed. The spice measures are great because they easily fit into most spice jars and cans. I find that dipping in is much easier than trying to pour spices out into a regular measuring spoon. These spoons are also long enough to reach to the bottom of most spice jars and cans, and have a tapered tip to help you get into the bottom edge to either loosen hardened spices or dip out what's left. My mom liked mine so much that she replaced her William-Sonoma set with the Amco Spice Measure set.

My ex bought these two years ago and I just had to get them back!!!

They work very well in spice pot and are very accurate! I tested mine against a kitchen aid measuring kit and everyone of them were right on cue as far as measure is concern...

Just washed them by hands...if you have time to cook, you should have time to wash your precious tools (Knives,measuring tools etc...)

They will last a lifetime!!!

Very nice heavy set and certainly does fit into the spice jars. I had actually wanted a set with a half tablespoon measure, and thought this set was strange having a 3/4 tsp measure, but I have found out that it really has been one of my most used spoons as many of the recipes out of the 'more bread machine magic' for the 1 lb loaves call for 3/4 tsp salt, and 1 1/2 tsp of yeast, so instead of using two different sized spoons for each of those measures I only have to grab this one (and obviously for my 1/2 TBSP needs (which is the same as 1 1/2 tsp), here again it's just filling up the 3/4 tsp twice) so in the end, I actually got a much more versatile set than if I had got one instead with the 1/2 TBSP. The only oddity was the printed card that mis-identified the sizes of the spoons to suggest that there was instead 1/8, 1/4, & 1 tsp, 1 & 1 1/2 TBSP (now what an odd set that would be) which of course is only 5 as well even though at the top the card says set of 6, but since that might only throw someone buying this set in a retail store it's a non-issue here. As for one reviewer's comment about the engraved labelling on the handles, my set was all deep and clear. For sizing, they do appear to be huge just to look at them, and I too worried about the accuracy, but I measured them against other sets I had of more conventional shapes and found them to be the same measure.

I already have the Amco Advanced Performance Measuring Spoons. I've had them for 5 years now. I am very happy with that set of spoons except only the 1/4 teaspoon measure fits in my spice jars, and that set doesn't come with an 1/8 or 3/4 teaspoon measure. So I decided to buy this set. But I definitely don't like these as much because:
1. It's a thinner metal than the Amco Advanced spoons. It looks pretty durable, but not as good of quality as the other measuring spoons.
2. Only the 1/8, 1/4, and 1/2 teaspoon measures fit inside my spice jars. The 3/4 teaspoon, 1 teaspoon, and 1 tablespoon do not. I'm not surprised that the tablespoon doesn't fit, but I was hoping that all the rest would.
3. The handles on the smaller spoons are wider than the spoon part. So if the spoon part fits in the spice jar, you can't get in the jar very far because the handle is a little too wide. The handles should be narrower and longer.
4. They nest inside each other too tightly, so it's a little hard to "un-nest" them.
5. They're shaped oddly. They're not completely oval shaped. The tips are slightly pointed. Not sure what the benefit of that would be. But it looks a little strange.

So in conclusion, I am disappointed with these spoons. I definitely prefer the Amco Advanced Performance Measuring spoons. I just wish that set came with an 1/8 teaspoon and 3/4 teaspoon measure like this set does. And I wish they fit in my spice jars. Maybe I'll just have to get bigger spice jars. I'm keeping these, but I'll probably only use the 1/8 and 3/4 teaspoons, and the rest as a back-up. If I had known all of this ahead of time, I wouldn't have bought these.

The measurements are exact-- after testing the tablespoon, teaspoon, and 1/2 teaspoon, and finding them all exactly accurate, I decided those other reviewers must have been sampling too much of the extract. They are a substantial thickness--I'd have to actually try to bend them, unlike the el cheapo spoons I had in college. They fit into spice jars easily--which is really the point, of course.

I've been wanting a set of a set of spice measures for a long time and being that I've been delighted with my Amco one-piece dry measuring cups for years (I wearied of handles breaking off), these have always been my first choice. However, I was seduced by the reviews and on-sale price of the Cuisipro spoons that I quickly determined were inaccurate and hence returned for a refund (after reviewing). These are perfect.

These Amco spoons are identical in measure to the trusted plastic set that I've been using for years (and will not discard due to their including that most elusive of all amounts, ⅓ teaspoon). They're also perfect in relation to each other, e.g., 8 ⅛ teaspoonfuls perfectly fill the teaspoon. Like my measuring cups, they're extremely heavy and in fact weigh a full 6.6 oz. sans ring. Kudos to those who claim they can easily bend the handles because they're clearly more woman than I.

The spoons, including the tablespoon, all fit into standard spice jars (although the tablespoon requires the tall size). There are only two problems with this set, both of them minor. One is that the spoons I received are not those shown: mine have straight handles rather than curved which means that I can't place the spoons on a flat surface without their bowls tipping (I've since learned that mine were the predecessors to the ones being sold now--no big deal). This was disappointing but not enough to merit returning the set. The second is that my set came fastened with a key ring that was almost possible to remove because of the thickness gauge of the steel used for the spoons. This is a major PITA because I usually remove my spoons from the ring as they're easier to deal with that way; this is even more of a consideration when the spoons are as heavy and the handles as long as these.
