Spoons Home

Spoons, spooned, spooning, spoonerisms, silver spoon, teaspoon, tablespoon, so many meanings…These concave creations are so ubiquitous in our lives that they have accumulated scores of unsolicited uses. We are here to set the bent spoon straight!

Definition from Wikipedia:

“A spoon is a utensil consisting of a small shallow bowl, oval or round, at the end of a handle. A type of cutlery (usually called flatware in the United States), especially as part of a place setting, it is used primarily for serving. Spoons are also used in food preparation to measure, mix, stir and toss ingredients. They can be made from metal (notably flat silver or silverware, plated or solid), wood, or plastic.




For classic purposes in the United States, one teaspoon is precisely 1768 of a U.S. liquid gallon (see United States customary units). This is precisely 4.92892159375 mL and 231768 (0.30078125) cubic inch. It is also equal to 13 tablespoon, 16 U.S. fl. oz, and 148 of U.S. customary cup. For nutritional labeling purposes on food packages in the U.S., the teaspoon is, by Federal regulations, rounded to precisely 5 mL
