The plastic measuring spoons have triboelectric properties that repulse the JJ powder, launching small pieces all over the bench. It always makes a bit of a mess.
Recognizing this, I bought myself a nice stainless steel measuring spoon, which has no such issues.
This was a bit hard to find in a suitable shape along with the correct volume, and it wasn’t really cheap. Maybe you would consider offering such a stainless steel measuring spoon, either to replace the plastic one, or as a “paid” alternative?
Sounds like a great idea to me just cuz the plastic one seems a bit weak and every time i use it, i get scared that imma break it. Dunno about the powder shooting aspect tho, i tried a stainless steel spoon once and as far as i remember it did that too (i am not sure tho! maybe i was just clumsy and misinterpreted my own powder spilling as the shooting). Stainless steel option would also be more eco friendly since it would last much longer
Same here. My stainless steel spoon from Ikea generates static electricity with the powder. I don’t know what to do to avoid that.
Awwh snap! Guess we just gotta get used to that lil downside haha
Do you have a link to your spoon model?
All suggestions are welcome, thanks for the feedback!
We will for sure communicate this to the superstars in the R&D department.
Could not find it but mentioned exactly this in another thread. A competing brand from the Czech Republic offers a metal spoon but unfortunately the size is different.
Not sure about environmental impact of a metal spoon as the energy and materials to make it would require you to use it thousands of times more than a plastic scoop. In any case its more practical and think a few euros would be a reasonable price to pay too. It could also be made part of the time traveller perk, like the metal shaker (I love using my metal shaker!)
This is why we need a dispenser to get rid of the spoon alltogether
I bought this spoon, mostly because the shape is good for digging out powder:
It’s 1 dl rather than 90 cc, but that’s okay for me. It has no nickel or chrome coating, and solved the jumpin’ powder issue for me, as I expected.
I am curious as to why some of you guys still have that issue with a stainless steel spoon - could it be because of chrome plating, or the plastic Plenny bag? I always empty the bag into a proper container, and spoon it from there.
I also do put the Plenny powder in the shaker first, before the water. If there is already water in the shaker, the effect tends to become pronounced, as I recall.
As far as I’m aware the powder picks up static electricity with the plastic scoops as well. While it always causes a mess, it’s kind of fun to see little pieces launch themselves into the air, with others forming cool patterns (perhaps because of the Iron?).
The idea of grounding a steel scoop sounds kind of amusing to me, and it seems cool in general, but I’ve never had a plastic scoop break. To be fair, I never really tried, and I have a collection of more than 10 of them by now. But it’s not like I put a lot of effort into keeping them safe. I just store one in the bag I’m eating from, and while they get a bit dusty like that sometimes, they tend to survive my backpack just fine.
Is this hinted in todays mail?
