Teaspoons, Tablespoons & Dessertspoons
Worldwide, there are many different units of measure. I’m often asked the difference between Teaspoons, Tablespoons & Dessertspoons so I thought I’d write a detailed explanation of how they are converted.
In the UK, dessertspoons are a level of measurement similar to a US Tablespoon. One level dessertspoon (Also known as dessert Spoon or abbreviated as dstspn) is equal to two teaspoons (tsp), 10 milliliters (mLs).
A US tablespoon (tbls) is three teaspoons (15mL). In Britain and Australia, for dry ingredients, a 2 rounded or heaped teaspoonful is often specified instead.
If you live outside the US, you may not be aware of how teaspoons and tablespoons work (although they are pretty widely used these days). So for those of you who aren’t aware, there are here is the conversion.
