Secrets of Success

Measuring Food Portions




I use food service scoops for fast and easy measuring of food. The scoops come in lots of sizes from teaspoons to cup size. I use the teaspoon and 1/2 cup the most. They also are great for baking cookies , cupcakes and pancakes. emoticon

More Information:

There are number on the end of the scoop to tell you how many servings per quart there are.

  • I never thought about using food service scoops - I have been dipping food into my plastic measuring cups and then trying to get it out again. This is a great idea that really should do the trick. Thanks for posting! emoticon - by LSIG14
  • Great idea. I am going to try using them. I just broke one of my measuring spoon and was going to buy a new set. Now I'll get food service scoops instead. - by JLTURNER4400
