Now You Know! 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.

actual measurements a little odd 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.
