As per our culture, we Indians have a habit of eating food by hand. The food is supposed to taste even better when eaten by hand. It is true as well. But another prevalent fact is the table manners which imply the importance of using a spoon while having anything on the dining table. They form etiquettes that nowadays play a crucial role in shaping one’s personality.

Two forms of cutlery are used the most, a teaspoon and a dessert spoon. Their names are enough to suggest what role they play. A teaspoon is a small-sized spoon. It is mainly used for adding ingredients or to stir the beverage. A dessert spoon, also known as the oval spoon, is used for savouring delicious desserts. People often get confused between the two. The two spoons may look identical to some extent but are different from one another.

Here are some common differences between a teaspoon and a dessert spoon:

  • A dessertspoon is a bit larger than a teaspoon and smaller than a tablespoon. It is used for eating dessert. A teaspoon is used for mixing the content of a cup or glass.
  • A dessert spoon is equivalent to 2 teaspoons, whereas a teaspoon’s unit of measure is worth one-third of a tablespoon.
  • Their shape and design vary extensively.
  • They are kept in different positions and at different times on the table. A teaspoon is served in the beginning, while a dessert spoon serves its purpose in the end.

Their shape, size, design may have differences. But for a novice, it will all appear the same. The difference might not be visible, but regular usage of both the spoons can help a person know how they differ in use and look.
