Measuring Spoons and Cups

Since a large, glass measuring cup was broken today (breakage is a common occurrence), it started my brain wheels turning. We all have to eat and some of us have to cook, so why not learn how to use our kitchen utensils properly and enjoy looking at them.

A measuring cup or spoon is a kitchen utensil used primarily to measure the volume of ingredient, either liquid or dry, when cooking. They come in all shapes and sizes, but still serve the same purpose as an aid to determine the proper amount of all ingredients.

Liquid measuring cups have the amounts listed on the outside of the cup. When measuring a liquid, fill the cup to the appropriate indicated line while keeping the cup on a level surface. Always read the amount with eyes level with the appropriate line.

When measuring dry ingredients, fill the spoon or cup to over flowing, tap lightly, and run a flat surface (spatula) across the top to level the surface. Return the excess to the original container. It is important to use the appropriate cups when measuring to ensure accurate amounts.

Here are some examples of measuring spoons and cups.
