dash pinch and smidgen

I purchased some measuring spoons from (I think) Greg Watsons fert site a few years back. They are stainless steel and are made by Ekco. Does anyone know what these equate to in teaspoons?

A dash is 1/8tsp, a pinch is 1/16th tsp, and a smidgen is 1/32 tsp.

You can always figure it out by spooning from them into a known measure and count to see how many it takes... then just divide

No need, you are correct. there is a fourth too, i believe its "hint" that is 1/64 tsp.

Hehe, sometimes I like to not only hand someone a fish, but give a little fishing lesson too.

I really prefer to use a gram scale accurate to the hundredth for this sort of thing, but I don't dry dose.

Yeh, I'm thinking about picking up one of those-more accurate. I've been using liquid retail products and I have a lot of dry ferts just sitting around waiting to be used when the bottled stuff is gone.

The only problem is that some of these spoons labeled like these are fractional TABLESPOONS and not teaspoons.
