Measuring Utensils

Hello everyone, my name is matthew. Im a student currently doing a project designing kitchen utensils. I would be ever so grateful if you could spend just a few minutes of your time filling in this short questionnaire: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/matthew.mattam/

It really is very short and i would be happy to share the outcome of my project in return. Thank you very much

P.S. If you would rather post your answers here instead of emailing them that is fine.
