The size of the spoon is an important consideration and will vary depending on the dishes you intend to serve.
The bowl of a Chinese spoon tends to be large. This is because, traditionally, chopsticks are used to pack the spoon with noodles and chunks of meat or vegetables. The spoon is then used alongside the chopsticks to guide the contents into your mouth; either by tilting the spoon or using the chopsticks to assist.
Some dishes, such as soup, are best consumed with spoons which will fit comfortably in the diner’s mouth. If you intend to serve these types of dishes, ensure you choose a smaller size.
The classic Chinese spoon design typically has a short, thick handle extending from a deep flat bowl.
Variation tends to be seen in the different sizes available, with larger spoons intended to accommodate noodles and other solid pieces of food as well as liquid.
Most Chinese spoons are ceramic. The beauty of this is that they won’t burn your mouth when dipped in piping hot soup, unlike their metal equivalent. The handle will also remain cool to the touch whilst you eat.
The quality of the spoon will depend wholly on the quality of the ceramic.
A more budget-friendly spoon will be made from thicker, more durable ceramic, whereas a high-end Chinese spoon is generally fashioned from quality porcelain. High-quality spoons may feature a more decorative and intricate pattern.
The thicker ceramic spoons tend to be more robust than their fine-porcelain equivalents. Porcelain can be prone to cracking and chipping.
Delicate porcelain spoons are not usually dishwasher and microwave friendly but the more basic ceramic equivalents are generally tougher.
