Collating measuring spoons

We're thinking of getting another set of measuring spoons*, which is why I was looking at them online last night. There isn't that big a range of features they tend to come with. Melamine or metal. Flat- or round-bottomed. Round or oblong. Number of spoons and how small the set goes.

One feature they all advertise, however, is a way of keeping the set together. Handy loop or chain. Magnetism.

C. looked at the images I showed him with astonishment. We can't get those, he said. They're chained together. Use one, and they'll all get dirty!

We keep our spoons loose in a container in a drawer, unchained, although they arrived years ago with loop to secure them.

How do you keep your measuring spoons?

Looped, chained, or magnetized together.

Other, to be explained in a comment.

* Spice-intensive meals involve going through a lot of them very quickly, and spices require re-used spoons to be both washed *and* dried, which is fiddly when measuring lots of things quickly.

I always take mine off the loop when I buy them. They do get separated and mixed up in the silverware; when this actually becomes a problem, I usually solve it by buying another set and chucking it in there too. Enough measuring spoons in the drawer, and the odds of coming across the one you want rise. (I think I have pieces from three sets in there, right now, and that's enough to find the size I'm looking for almost immediately.)
