Measuring spoons chain

lkv7 Oct 20, 2008 09:03 AM

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to replace a couple of chains that usually come with a set of measuring spoons, I've checked places like Home Depot without success...

I'm wondering if anyone else has replaced or would at least know of a place where I might find new chains? Ace??

Thank you.

    The chains that have come on measuring spoons for me at least have always been what i've called "ball chain" like what's on lamps. I would check Home Depot again, and certainly ACE or most any hardware store.

      I've always seen measuring cups on a ring, rather than a chain. You can find rings (like key rings) of many sizes at most well-stocked hardware stores.

        On a slightly different topic, I just got measuring spoons for Christmas that are held together by magnets. They're wonderful!!!
