Have you ever tried to measure really small amounts of liquid, sugar, almond essence or alcohol before? It can be tricky can’t it? Measuring jugs nearly always start at 50ml or 100ml. What if you need 30ml of brandy? Or you have tripled a recipe and need 6 teaspoons of vanilla essence? I know you can just measure it out individually, but wouldn’t it be easier to just pour and measure in one go? Well now you can.
Last night I was on a cake propping mission at Sainsburys for a photo shoot I am doing this week and I seemed to wander away from the flour and eggs and found myself in the kitchenware department. I had popped into the Savercentre in Sydenham which is their flagship store so this section is pretty large and there is a lot to whet your appetite. It took all my will power not to buy another sieve/spatula/cookie cutter!
No sooner did I see this shot glass than it was in my basket. It’s by Eddingtons. It has four measurements on the sides (as you can see in the photos) teaspoons, tablespoons, ounces and millilitres. It’s a steal at just £3! I bought one for my mum at the same time as we have often discussed this mini measuring dilemma. I used to use the girls baby bottles when they were little and no longer needed them as they had small measures on the side, but they’re long gone now.
This little glass made me very happy. What’s the saying” Simple things amuse simple people!” I rest my case!
