Measuring cups and tools for cooking
Whether you’re making a recipe that is forgiving, such as risotto which calls for roughly four cups stock to every cup of arborio rice, or you’re baking and need exactly 250 grams of softened butter, be prepared in the kitchen with measuring cups and other smartly designed kitchen tools. Find everything from measuring spoons and cups to kitchen scales and graduated shakers or cups.
Simple measuring spoons and measuring cups that are easy to use

Or go with all stainless steel options in stackable measuring cups and measuring spoon sets that are connected via a key ring so you’ll never misplace one.
Find everything you need to be a measure above in the kitchen
Need more than a pinch or a dash and it has to be exact for the sourdough recipe you’re finally getting close to mastering? Find an affordable, lightweight electronic kitchen scale that’s as easy to clean as it is to move to a kitchen island or tuck away for storage.
For imprecise recipes that call for a lot of an ingredient, go with stainless steel, dishwasher-safe scoops available in two sizes. Able to be hung from racks with hooks, these kitchen scoopers are great for handling flour for baking, hops for home brewing in the garage or for feeding the dog.
For liquid measurement, go with the beaker look of a graduated measuring cup with heat resistant glass that is microwave and dishwasher safe. Use the convenient handle and pouring spout to gradually incorporate an ingredient—such as olive oil when making the garlic aioli that puts your backyard burgers over the top. Or go with a graduated plastic shaker that helps you measure your pancake batter or your morning protein smoothie. Go ahead and shake things up with the leak-proof lid that also allows you to store your creations in the fridge or freezer.
And when it’s internal temperatures that you have to measure, go with a smart electronic meat thermometer. With a durable casing featuring a magnet for sticking it to the fridge or the stove, you’ll get precise internal temperature readings for any roast or hefty steak you’re tackling. The thermometer also doubles as a timer.
Rest assured that all food contact plastic is free of harmful additives such as BPA (Bisphenol A).
