OMG!!! I was going to buy this set but the measuring cups and spoons look like something you’d find at one of those $1 stores and you get what you pay for in those places! AND then I saw June’s deal and I’m even more turned off by today’s deal! Don’t you people at Meh realize that even tho we may be cheap, we still want quality merchandise and plastic over stainless steel is definitely NOT quality! So sad! I guess I’ll wait another month and see if the stainless steel cups and spoons make it back in the set… thanks @coldestcore for the link!!!
@coldestcore@leti1111 I feel like your dollar stores may be better than mine.
As far as plastic spoons go, though look pretty thick and strong. I guess it is hard to tell from the pictures, though.
As it happens, I recently did use a dollar store measuring cup set and snapped the handle scooping out… something. Maybe brown sugar? I don’t remember.
I got them last time, partly because of the very nice steel measuring cups and spoons, which are quite nice. Shame they have plastic ones this time, even though the price is the same.
But the bowls are great, especially with the lids. And kudos to the write upper:
@stolicat As the buyer for this deal the plastic measuring spoons are nicer than the stainless in my opinion. The stainless had a tendency to bend a bit when scooping in thick material. The Plastic do not. They are thicker than they look.
@moofi@therealjrn@Trinityscrew I was scooping frozen ice cream with a metal one the other day (too lazy to go find a spoon) - in general they seem fine. I’ve never had a metal one break on me, and they look much nicer.
I dithered last time because I only needed the bowls and measuring spoons, and missed it. I thought it would be several months before they sold them again. So I bought a 5 pack of bowl but still have same measuring spoons (1 set of my grandmother’s hand-me-down now dented metal, 1 set cracked plastic).
So I am glad I bought the bowls so I didn’t quick hit buy due to the sharp folks noticing the change to plastic spoons. I’ll go get spoons, any recos?
