The use of tablespoons as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these spoons was about 15 ml, which was also the size of a scruple, a unit of measure for apothecaries and pharmacists. The tablespoon was convenient for measuring and dispensing small amounts of liquids and powders for medicinal purposes.

The use of tablespoons as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries.
