A "measuring spoon" often used when cooking. Many people have three sizes, 2.5cc, 5cc, and 15cc. I've been using it for a long time, but the other day I found a product called a "mini measuring cup" at the 100-yen shop NATURAL KITCHEN. It was so easy to use that I thought, "I don't need a measuring spoon anymore?", So I would like to introduce three advantages.
Advantage 1 You can measure seasonings with one handWhen using a measuring spoon, both hands tend to be occupied, with the right hand being a spoon and the left hand being a bottle of soy sauce. However, if you have a "mini measuring cup" that you can leave on the counter, you can use it with one hand! You can easily weigh it even during cooking.
Merit 2 Less worry about spillingWhen measuring liquid with a measuring spoon, we promise to pour it so that the surface rises. But if you do that, you may inadvertently spill it. With a "mini measuring cup" with a capacity of 50 ml or more, you don't have to worry about that. You can prevent the rough phase during cooking.
Advantage 3 Weigh several types at the same timeEven when measuring multiple seasonings, the "mini measuring cup" makes it easy. You can add soy sauce to the "2 tsp" scale and then add lemon juice to the "3 tsp" scale. You can also save the trouble of preparing a container to mix the seasonings.
So far, I have praised the "mini measuring cup", but it is not perfect. For example, if you want to measure a small amount such as "1/2 teaspoon", a measuring spoon may be more convenient. Also, in the scene of scooping up the sugar in the container and weighing it, it seems that the measuring spoon will be better served.
A "mini measuring cup" that makes weighing work much smoother, although it does not eliminate the need for a measuring spoon. If you see it at the store, please try it. The price is, of course, 108 yen per piece (tax included).
