I'm not sure about you, but measuring spoons confuse the heck out of me. What's the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon? What if I add too much or too little? At the end of the day, I'm just plain lousy with numbers. It's an ugly flaw of mine, but I've learned to embrace it. If you're bad with measurements or if your drawer is overflowing with kitchen tools, you might want to consider getting this innovative spoon.

This unusual measuring spoon folds like origami when you're using it. Whether you're baking a fancy souffle or cooking a magic stew, the spoon has four different measurements and can handle dry or wet ingredients. All you have to do is pinch the spoon to shape it. There is even pre-marked tics on the spoon for people who struggle with exact measurements. Lastly, when you're not using the spoon, it'll lie flat, saving a lot of drawer space. In other words, it's an alternative to traditional measuring spoons.

Polygons may be a startup company, but their overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign is nothing short of impressive. This unique kitchen tool is expected to ship in January 2017. Because it's a Kickstarter campaign, the price depends on what you're willing to shell out. The rewards range from $8 to $89, but most of the less expensive ones are no longer available.
