Measuring Cups FAQs

What are the best types of measuring cups?

  1. Stainless Steel Measuring Cups: These cups are made of stainless steel and come in various sizes. They are durable, resistant to rust, and often come with both metric and imperial measurements.
  2. Plastic Measuring Cups: Lightweight and budget-friendly, plastic measuring cups are a popular choice. They are available in a variety of colours, making it easy to assign different colours to different measurements for quick identification.
  3. Glass Measuring Cups: Glass measuring cups are known for their practicality and precision. They handle both dry and liquid ingredients with accuracy, thanks to their temperature-resistant design. The clear glass makes it easy to see the measurements, offering a straightforward and functional tool for your kitchen.

How to properly use a measuring cup

  1. How To Measure Dry Ingredients: For dry ingredients like flour or sugar, use a spoon to scoop the ingredient into the measuring cup, then level it off with a flat edge. Avoid tapping the cup to settle the contents, as this can lead to inaccurate measurements.
  2. How To Measure Liquid Ingredients: For liquids, place the measuring cup on a flat surface and pour the liquid until it reaches the desired mark. Check at eye level for accuracy, ensuring the meniscus of the liquid aligns with the measurement line.
  3. How To Measure Brown Sugar: When measuring brown sugar, pack it into the measuring cup and level it off. This ensures an accurate measurement, especially when dealing with recipes that require the sugar to be firmly packed.
