Show/Hide comments [ 5 ] I have those measuring cups! I got mine from Ikea almost 5 years ago! Brilliant! Reply IKEA is fun for little kitchen-y stuff like that. 🙂 Reply I use one of my measuring spoons to make nice small meat balls. Still have to do some shaping by hand but it's only with 1 hand so it's nicer than the way I used to try. Reply I'm stealing your tip because I never thought about it but I love it! Reply So simple, yet genius. I used this tip to make burgers for my husband the other day. I don't think I can ever go back to handmaking them ever again.
