Spoons Retain Water In Handle
on July 21, 2011
There is a serious design flaw in the large spoons, and that's a crying shame since there are a lot of other utensils in this set that are pretty nice. The spoons are made of two parts, a top half and a bottom half, and when I wash them in the dishwasher a lot water accumulates in the handle. I didn't notice it at first, but then it starts to leak slowly out when the spoon is moved in a certain motion. This may be a sanitary issue depending how dirty the trapped water can be and how long it has been sitting in the handle. There really is no excuse for this design flaw given how long Oxo has been in business and how much they charge for this product. I'm going to have to wash those spoons by hand and hope a lot of water doesn't get in them when doing so.
