Chinese spoon

The Chinese spoon, Chinese soup spoon, or duck spoon is a type of spoon with a short, thick handle extending directly from a deep, flat bowl.[1]

It is a regular implement in Chinese cuisine.[1] It is often used for various liquids (e.g. soups) or loose solids. Most are made from ceramics.[1] Although normally used as an eating utensil, larger versions of the Chinese spoon are also used as serving spoons or ladles. Some varieties have a tessellated form and most are able to be stacked on top of one another for storage.

Chinese spoons typically have higher sides and can hold more than the western soup spoon.[1]
