This is bizarre.

We have a product widely sold online who's purpose is to measure small amounts of a substance with, one assumes, some reasonable degree of accuracy. But the manufacturer, rather than mark the spoons with a useful unit of measure chose to stamp cutesy names on them that suggest a rough approximation rather than an actual measure. As if they didn't even know themselves what the true sizes were. And the retailers offering these spoons are uniformly mute as far as describing them any more precisely.

But, nevertheless, customers love them. Many reviewers here stress how handy they for *accurately* measuring out small quantities - in spite of the fact that they DON"T ACTUALLY KNOW what fraction of a teaspoon they're dolling out. Why do I say this? Because every previous attempt i've found to translate the cutesy names into standard units of measure - here and at other O/L retailers - is wrong. All of them. I know this because I did something that *apparently* no one has ever done before. I actually *measured* the volume of these measuring spoons.

I used a syringe graduated in hundredths of a CC and filled each spoon till it was full. I did this 3 times & averaged the results. Then I converted CC's into fractions of a teaspoon. With one exception - the spoons *do* follow some sort of logical size progression as they get smaller and they all appear to be within approximately 5% of their expected nominal size. Here's the conversion:

TAD = 1/4 tsp
DASH = 1/12 tsp <<<< not 1/8 >>>
PINCH = 1/16 tsp
SMIDGEN = 1/32 tsp
DROP = 1/64 tsp

I bought these mini measure spoons to measure medicine for my small puppy and because there were 5 in the set as opposed to the others for sale that have three or four per set. The actual measurements come out a bit strange...., when carefully checked against my standard teaspoon measure are as follows. 1/5 tsp, 1/11 tsp, 1/16 tsp, 1/32 tsp, 1/64 tsp.
I will use them and I scratched the actual measurements into the handle so I would remember.
I hope this helps others who are considering the purchase.

According to Norpro, and with the aid of reliable Supplement Website, here is the scoop....literally:

DRY CONVERSION
TAD = 1/4 tsp = 530 milligrams
DASH = 1/8 tsp = 264 milligrams
PINCH = 1/16 tsp = 132 milligrams
SMIDGEN = 1/32 tsp = 66 milligrams
DROP = 1/64 tsp = 33 milligrams

Dry measuring differs greatly from liquid, liquid in some cases being double the amount of a dry measurement.

Other reviewers have given teaspoon measurements. However, in measuring my own spoons, none of them are even close to those measurements. The method I used to measure the volume used salt to fill up these spoons and then poured them into a 1 teaspoon for the Tad and Dash and for the rest, I filled the salt into a 1/4 teaspoon and multiplied by 4 to get teaspoon measurements. These are the results from my own measurements.

Tad=1/5 tsp
Dash=1/12 tsp
Pinch=1/20 tsp
Smidge=1/40 tsp
Drop=1/96 tsp

As you can see, none of them are anywhere close to what other reviewers have indicated. So if you need very precise volume measurements with these spoons, it's best to do your own volume test to see how much volume each spoon actually holds. That means, don't even trust my own measurements since your spoons may be different.

I ordered 2 sets of these spoons. They are great. I only wish for one thing, that they had the teaspoon equivalents on it. I have to look them up. But I was so happy to find them.

I bought this Nopro spoons for quick caffeine measurements i decided that i would write a review for these spoons using the (American Weigh Gemini-20 Portable Milligram Scale, 20 by 0.001 G) and the (500G 1.1 Lbs. Caffeine Powder 100% USP Pharma Grade Pure Powder Foil Sealed for freshness. Ultra Pure Powder.)

Drop-----0.032g (32mg)
Smidgen--0.077g (77mg)
Pinch----0.159g (159mg)
Dash-----0.203g (203mg)
Tad------0.563g (563mg)

I am not responsible for how you use these measurements. This was a small test that i made to see the measurements of these spoons using the Gemini scale and hard rhino caffeine powder i bought from amazon.

The spoons were a gift for someone who says she can't cook "by taste", which is how she has been given some recipes. The recipes call for a smidgen or a dash and she has no idea how much that is. These measuring spoons fit the bill perfectly. She was very pleased with her gift.

I have to give my puppy powdered medicine in a very small amount - one half of 1/16 of a teaspoon. I had been just shaking out a small portion but when I saw these spoons, I ordered them immediately. Now I know she is getting the right amount of medicine in her tiny body regularly. I am so glad I bought them!
