Stocking stuffer: Teak measuring spoons

December 4, 2011 | 10:00 am

MeasuringspoonsThere’s something so twee and comforting about these teak measuring spoons from the online store Merchant No. 4. I’d love to have a pair in my own kitchen, just as an alternative to those clanking metal ones.

Not to worry, the wood used in making these is plantation farmed and has no chemical finishes. The care is easy: warm water and soap. Just don’t put in the dishwasher or leave these or any wooden spoons to soak.

You’d have to have a very large stocking to fit the teak Swan Ladle, but why not? Sew a big one and stuff this beauty inside.

Teak measuring spoons, $20; teak swan ladle, $34, from Merchant no. 4; (212) 925-2235; info@merchant4.com. Gift wrapping is only a dollar more.
