I like to be in and out of the kitchen as quickly as possible, so anything that slows me down, such as dull knives and inefficient appliances, has to go. One thing I’m so glad to be rid of? My clumsy old measuring spoons.

The white plastic spoons I bought over ten years ago were one of those sets held together by a ring and they were too hard to separate. This means that every time I needed one, I dragged every other spoon along, which means I also had to wash them all each time. And I don’t have a dishwasher – I is the dishwasher.

But two years ago I found magnetic measuring spoons in my Christmas stocking and my whole view of this kitchen necessity changed. And right now, Amazon is full of early Black Friday deals on these handy little time savers.

My favorite thing about magnetic measuring spoons is that I can separate them with one hand and pull the set apart to use only what I need. My other favorite thing about them is that they are double-sided, so technically my six-piece set has 12 spoons. The round side is for liquids and oils, while the oval side is for sticking in narrow spice jars.

The best deal on magnetic measuring spoons on Amazon I’m seeing as of this writing is on the site’s overall best-selling set, which is 44 percent off and now just $14. It has received tens of thousands of five-star ratings, and shoppers say the spoons are “very sturdy” and “easier to use” than traditional versions. Each spoon has the same color label and there are several shades on sale now.

And for just $13, you can pick up this eight-piece measuring spoon set, which is just like mine in that each spoon has a different color label. This makes them easier to distinguish when the writing on the labels inevitably fades after hundreds of washes. Crucially, both of these sets include a 3/4 teaspoon – something I wish my collection had.

Trust me: These are the stocking stuffers your family members want to see—I know I did. Get magnetic measuring spoons on sale at Amazon before Black Friday starts.
