Nigella Lawson ‘s Pick: maidodo Measuring Cups and Measuring Spoons Set.
Measuring Cups and Measuring Spoons Set, maidodo Measuring Cup Spoon with Thickened Wooden Handle Rose Gold Stainless Steel Copper Plated Baking Tool ,4 Measuring Cups + 4 Measuring Spoons
This was a xmas present for the wife. She had noticed them being used by celebrity chef Nigella Lawson and wanted a set. All I can say is that she is very pleased wiyh them. Storing the cups and spoons could be better if they were able to be hung. They have no eye or are not drilled to unable this. However they appear to be made from quality matetials and fair well in the dish washer.
I saw a well known female cook using these on her show and just loved them – so hunted down a set for my kitchen. They are not the most compact, but they are so handsome I am prepared to make space in my drawer for them.
I love these measuring cups and spoons. They are great quality and look so pretty that I hung them up on display rather than tuck them away in a drawer. And as a bonus, I’d say they are a dead ringer for Nigella’s.
Nigella Lawson recommended these exact ones on Twitter! You will not be disappointed.
Be warned – They should only be hand-washed as the dishwasher will tarnish the brass and ruin the wooden handles.
