I was so excited to receive my five new 46cm/18″ Jala Beech spoons from Amazon today. Well, I was so excited to receive the five massive boxes each containing one spoon, that I thought you’d all enjoy a step-by-step account of the unboxing.

Let’s first have a look at how they looked when they arrived. You’ll notice Amazon have thoughtfully ensured that each spoon is separately packaged in its own voluminous cardboard casket, to avoid any inter-spoon crosstalk during the delivery process. Well done Amazon here, as I bought these as an add-on item, so might have expected them to share some of the copious amounts of packaging one of the other ten things in my order took up, but no, Amazon saw fit to do the right thing and ensure each valuable spoon was carefully cosseted in its own cardbox box.

We couldn’t wait to unpack them. Note the well cushioned packaging protecting each valuable spoon (cost: £3.67) from any vibration damage in transit, plus the copious amount of space around each spoon cleverly inserted to allow each spoon to breath:

And here they are in their full unpacked wooden glory (with associated packaging) on my kitchen table:

And yes, I’m on Prime, so paid no delivery charges for this. I’ll always order my spoons this way in future.
