Measuring Cups and spoons are something every cook/baker needs. It is an item “Must Have.” I have two sets of cups and spoons and I use them a lot. I don’t think it’s as important to have this stuff for cooking as it is for baking. If your going to bake…these are essential to making your dish a success. If your not going to use them…then why are you baking? I figure pretty much anything you will make will turn out into a disaster. If a recipe calls for salt…you want to have the right amount. It would be awful if your chocolate chip cookies tasted more salty than sweet.
You can find them anywhere and they are a dime a dozen…in fact I’m sure the dollar store even has them. I was given a nice set for my birthday a few years back. They are plastic and the labels have rubbed off now, but I still use them a lot even though I bought a nicer stainless steel set a few years ago. I think having a set of two is nice to have since I do quite a bit of baking. So lesson of the day…if you plan to bake…invest in a set! :)
