Why you should own a 1/4 cup scoop

You should own a 1/4 cup scoop- hear me out! I know it seems obscure and unnecessary, but it’s easily one of the most versatile, most used and most loved tools in my kitchen. As a professional food stylist, I used own scoops in a range of sizes, but I got rid of almost all of them in favor of the 1/4 cup. Not only is it the perfect size, the spring release makes any recipe go more quickly, with less mess.
