What is the purpose?

Of the 'big' spoon in a 5-piece silverware set??

I mean, the little spoon we use for EVERYTHING - cereal, soup, little veggies, etc.  But the 'big' spoon?  It is simply too big to use for eating - but it's smaller than serving spoons - so what IS it's purpose!!??

Yes - I am THAT lame that I don't know what it's for. 

My 6 year old got me a 'big' spoon for my cereal this morning because he assumed it was the "adult" spoon...that didn't work out so well, LOL.

 Good question.   I got some larger spoons with my set, but mine look a tad bit larger than yours.  I assumed that it was a serving spoon.

Hmm idk I'd assume soup and the small for like beverages such as coffee and tea that's what I do

I've tried eating soup with the larger spoon - it's too big.  Spoons made for soup are usually more 'rounded' in my experience and not as big...like this:


My serving spoons are much larger than the 'big' spoon in the set...like this



The little spoons aren't 'tiny' like for stirring - they're just 'regular' spoons like you get at a restaurant.

We use the "big" spoon for everything except Steph.  We rarely use the little spoon.
