Tip: Adjustable Measuring Cup
I have a very dear friend named Nicki. One weekend, while we were visiting them, she made pancakes. She pulled out an adjustable measuring cup and measured everything with it – wet and dry ingredients. I was dully impressed. Then I forgot all about it. A year or two later, I was at a kitchen products party and saw one and promptly purchased it, trying to figure out just how I planned to explain to my husband why I spent $10 on a measuring cup when I had a drawer full of plastic ones, stainless steel ones, and glass liquid ones in all different shapes and sizes.
But then he saw the magic that is my adjustable measuring cup.
You open the cup to the measurement you want — this is 1/2 cup honey.
Then you push the plunger to push the ingredients out.
If you’ve ever measured honey before, or shortening, or butter, or peanut butter, or anything sticky you know that it’s a mess to measure, scrape out, and make sure you got it all. This has a rubber base thing that pushes the ingredients out and scrapes the side of the cup so that it all gets into your recipe.
Mess free honey measuring.
It’s a beautiful thing.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.

My mom has one. And it is so amazing.
Whenever I dig through my drawer for the right size measuring cup, I always wish I had one.
And then I forget about it…
Maybe I should make a list…
Or maybe I should just go order one now…
i love the one i have from pampered chef. they just came out with a smaller version too that i wanted but did really NEED another measuring cup? i still have the reg. ones, plus the liquid ones, and yet i still don’t have enough of them when im baking a bunch of stuff it seems!
I saw that at the Pampered Chef party. I want one!!! They are super awesome. AB on Good Eats on Food Network uses one pretty often as well.
I’ve always wanted one of these, but never want to spend the $ on it. My measuring cups are disappearing one by one so I may have to break down and get it now.
I may need to get one of those! I hate measuring out PB or honey because of the mess/stickiness.
