|Tiny Utensil Drawer|
There is this cool company called OXO, they make any number of home gadgets. Every once in a while I find one at a liquidator store or at a deep discount. This was one of those times. This little beauty will let you measure liquids and solids from 0 to 1/8 of a cup. It consists of a clear polycarbonate measuring space with clearly marked red lines and numbers, A plastic base with a silicone rubber stopper. When assembled these work together to allow you to measure whatever you like. Once you preset the measurement by twisting the base until the bottom lines up with the amount, simply fill the space and you're done!
I thought it might have been difficult to read the small numbers, but if you hold them up to the light they are quite clear. No problems there.
It will measure Tablespoons, Teaspoons, Ounces and Milliliters. No muss, no fuss. I ran it through the dishwasher a couple of times on the top rack. No degradation of the numbers or lines. And it came out sparkly clean. Hand washing was also easy since the pieces come apart so easily. It's small size really reduced the clutter in my tiny utensil drawer. Always a good thing for me!
All in all, I like this measuring gadget. At under $3.00 it was a bargain. I'm sure they make this style of measuring device in larger sizes, but a simple measuring cup works OK for me and is far less complex. Maybe one a little bit bigger....say 1 Cup max would be helpful. I'll look around for one being sold at a discount...
