Pimp your measuring spoons

Pity the mundane measuring spoon: practical, homely, living to serve. No reason why it shouldn't get dressed up on the job.

1 Peppy flower spoons are $5.50 from bibelot.

2 Not dressy, just kooky: a set of stainless steel spoons in oddball sizes including a pinch, 1/8 teaspoon, 2/3 teaspoon, 1-1/2 teaspoons and 2 teaspoons. $16 from Spoon Sisters.

3 Colorful stoneware spoons from Anthropologie with the usual sizes plus 1/8 teaspoon and a pinch.

4 Just because there should be no gadget untouched by silicone. This cute set (with stainless steel handles) from William Bounds is $13 from CentralChef.

5 And for that matter there should be no gadget unbranded by Mario Batali. These double-ended melamine spoons have magnets so they stick together and come in Mario's signature orange and green. $5.50 from Amazon.

6 Here's where the Cinderella of kitchen gadgets gets to dress up for the ball. These hand-painted ceramic spoons are $22 from elaineducharmdesigns on etsy. Each set is hand-painted to order.
