100 Cotton Solid Color Matching Sling Midi Dresses Review
Aaron Contorer: I'm a fairly serious cook, so I need to measure a lot. I use this beaker whenever I can, for both wet and dry ingredients.It has several advantages: (1) it's narrower at the bottom, so when measuring a small quantity you get extra accuracy; (2) it has a curved lip for perfect pouring with literally zero drips; (3) it is marked in many different units such as cups, ounces, ml, etc.; (4) it is very light in weight yet unbreakable; (5) it feels really good in your hand.It also has disadvantages: (1) it's not a good choice for hot liquids because it's plastic (I use Pyrex for that); (2) the wonderful big foot tends to be full of water when emptying the dishwasher. I solved #2 in 10 seconds by drilling a teensy hole near the top of the foot, so water drains out of it when inverted in the dishwasher.If you are a serious cook and you buy this item and don't use it often, I'll be surprised.
Adrian Black: It looks weird to most american kitchens. A beaker, you say? But once you use it -- you'll never go back. Ever.I measure things and then shake to mix. Great for drinks, but also especially for cooking. Alton Brown on the TV Show Good Eats uses a similar one (not sure if they are the same). Pouring is a snap. Measuring is a snap.A godsend for anyone whose hands shake too much to pour into a small spoon, or measuring cup that might tip over on the counter. Its sturdy base assures free-standing pouring, even for those of us with carpal tunnel or other folk of uncertain hand movements.Once I used this, I found that many other tools became replaced. It has some classy looks going on too -- nice as well as functional.
Adrianne P: I have had this item since 2007 and still use it weekly. Works great for people who cook a lot. I have always hand washed it since it is so small. None of the markings have work off and it has not cracked anywhere. Only irritations are the hollow bottom collects water when upside down to dry and it is quite scratched. Still fantastic for adding TBS to a cup which is often something I have to do baking at high altitude.
A Gal from Sunny California: I have to admit, after watching many episodes of "Good Eats" with Alton Brown, I looked for the beaker he used. While this is a handy gadget, it is made out of plastic. I hand wash mine, as it is a little too tall to fit on the top rack of my dishwasher and I wouldn't recommend washing on the bottom rack. The lid is handy, but I don't store anything in mine, I just use to it to measure liquid ingredients and occasionally mix items together. Overall it is handy.
Aspasia: This is the most handy measuring unit I've owned. Measurements are clearly marked for teaspoons, ml/ccm, pint units, cups, tablespoons, and ounces. The beaker's design is sturdy and it's deep enough to securely hold a long thermometer.If you're into cooking and baking, this beaker is a must.
