August 18, 2012, 7:35 AM — Like most self-taught cooking enthusiasts, I tend to see recipes as rough guidelines as opposed to rules to live by. However, that's not the case for everyone. For those who demand the utmost perfection in their culinary masterpieces, accuracy is everything; a single tablespoon can mean the difference between an exquisite meal or ignominious failure. If you belong to the latter category but have problems getting your measurements just right, here's something that you may want to put into a future Christmas wish list.
Described as a "spoon with an automatic capacity adjustment," the Smoon is essentially a "robotic measuring spoon that dynamically adjusts its capacity according to a digital recipe."
In simpler terms, it makes life easier by taking away the need to determine what two and a half cups of milk actually means.With the Smoon, all you need to do is follow the recipes on screen and the Smoon will do the rest.
While the Smoon is definitely far from the most mind-blowing thing that researchers have come up with, it's still going to be a godsend for anyone who wants to spend more time with a loved one than spooning sugar into a bowl.
