nice but inaccurate
on December 6, 2015
It seems like a good quality stainless steel scoop. The problems I have with it are the inconsistencies with the product. The image shows the scoop marked with a 1 tbsp engraving on the handle. Some customers who have purchased this that replied to my question said theirs is clearly marked 1 tbsp. However, other customers, including myself, our scoops are not marked anywhere as being 1 tablespoon. Mine did not even say it on the packaging.
I took another tablespoon that I have and then filled this one with the same contents and it did not fill up all the way. Perhaps my old spoon was inaccurate? So I took a digital scale and weighed the equivalent of a tablespoon which is half ounce. Well guess what? This scoop definitely holds more than a tablespoon! Perhaps this doesn't matter to some people but to bakers, dieters, for medicine and any other scenario where accuracy is important, this scoop doesn't cut it. I realize this is being sold for scooping coffee but it is also being sold as a scoop measuring a tablespoon and it does not. If they did not describe it as a tablespoon, I would give it more stars. But then, I wouldn't have bought it either!
I ordered two and now I am debating sending the other back. It's too bad because the quality and price ($3) was nice.
If you don't care about the measurement being slightly off then please purchase this without worries. :)
