I've had one yeast measuring spoon (from another store) for several years, but I use it so often that I wanted a second one (and wanted to order a third one for a friend). I searched on the internet and only found two options, and chose this site for the shipping deal. I prefer yeast in a jar, and this measures one envelope per scoop. It is lightweight (as the price reflects), but I still like it
In an effort to organize my pantry, I bought this spoon. Not only does it shorten measuring time, it fits into a wide-mouth, 26.4 oz French "Le Parfait Terrine Canning Jar" upright, with a full pound of SAF yeast. I'll never have to rummage through my kitchen looking for 'that special yeast spoon' again unless I forget it's stored with the yeast, of course :D
I loved the idea of a yeast measuring spoon because 2 1/4 teaspoons is a multi-step measuring process. I was so excited since I bake bread every week. However, the design is not very helpful. The spoon shape is shallow and wide so leveling off the yeast in the spoon always results in yeast on the counter. The spoon is barely narrower than the jar opening. I don't mind the quality (you get what you pay for), but the design needs improvement to be really useful
