Here are my cooking for two measuring must haves I reach for when scaling recipes down to size or to accurately follow one of the Our Table 4 2's recipes.
- OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Measuring Cups - These durable stainless steel cups boast rims flush with the long handles, making leveling off dry ingredients easy. I really like the easy-to-read measurement markings and that the cups stack and store neatly.
- Pyrex 2-cup measuring cup - A pour spout and handle are musts in liquid measuring cups. The heat proof pyrex measuring cup has crisp, unambiguous marking and include ¼ and ⅓ cup measurements.
- Cuisipro 5-piece stainless steel oval measuring spoons are sturdy, elongated and slim enough to dip into narrow spice jars.
- Digital scales measure ingredients by weight to guarantee accuracy. I like to use a scale when measuring the amount of fruit for my blueberry lemon yogurt cake or lemon rhubarb cake. If I feel like splurging on a scale, my choice is the OXO Good Grips 11 lb Food Scale with Pull Out Display. It’s reliably accurate, has a large display with a backlight for clear legibility, and has a removable platform for easy cleanup. However, I the Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale the best buy. While it doesn’t have a detachable platform, it is an accurate, less expensive option.
Commonly asked questions about measuring tools
When measuring multiple ingredients into one bowl or container, we will use the tar button to set the scale at zero weight before adding the next ingredient to the same mixing bowl. For example if a recipe calls for 113 g of flour, first set a mixing bowl on the scale, hit the tar button to zero out the weight of the bowl. Now, add the flour until the scale displays 113 g. Let's say you want to add 11 g of salt to the flour. Hit the tar button to zero out the weight of the mixing bowl and flour. Pour salt into the flour bowl until the display reads 11g. It's that easy and means fewer dishes to clean!
