Nuscup Adjustable Measuring Cup and Scoop
These adjustable measuring cups (or scoops) are a must-have for every kitchen. They are clear so you can see exactly how much of an ingredient you've got in there. You can throw them in the dishwasher and store them in a drawer or on the side of your refrigerator - there's a magnet on the back! These would be a great gift for anyone who loves to bake or cook or for someone who just got their first place and needs some essential kitchen gadgets.
NuScups are some seriously smart design. Take a scoop. Add markings to the side so you can use it as a measuring cup. THEN add a swing-able 'door' connected to a rubber knob - so you can change the volume of the scoop with the flick of a switch. There are 2 versions - MIni and Regular. The Mini measures from 1/2 tsp. to 2 full tablespoons - perfect for scooping coffee and tea. Mine is hanging from the side of my coffee machine, thanks to the handy-dandy magnet included on the back handle. The Regular measures from 2-9 tablespoons (1/8-1/2 of a cup). The solid, rubber grip switch is a cinch to use - just slide it forwards or backwards till it lines up with your desired amount, indicated on the handle. Then scoop (or fill with liquid) away! It works for both wet and dry ingredients. Check out the pics to see detailed photos of the measurements you can take. The side of the scoop itself features measurements in mL's just to cover more bases. The whole thing easily comes apart in 3 pieces, just in case you need to clean it thoroughly (dishwasher safe). it snaps back together just as easily. Color options include clear, Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue, Emereld Green, and a nice steel Metallic version. The Mini is $12, the Regular $14. Add $2 for the Metallic finish. Great product, wonderfully executed - no more dangling sets of measuring spoons!
