It is a regular implement in Chinese cuisine. It is often used for various liquids (e.g. soups) or loose solids. Most are made from ceramics. 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.
