There’s something magical about baking, when you stop to consider it. How is it that these lowly ingredients- a cup of flower, a bit of sugar, a little butter, a nice fresh egg- all can be whisked together with slight variations, in endless combinations to make so very many delicious confections? It seems an impossible, alchemical feat.
And while my grandmother taught me the old-school method of baking, which was done largely by memory and feel- learning your ingredient so intimately that you know exactly how much is in a “pinch” or a “dusting” or a “handful”, it’s also nice to have shiny tools at your disposal. I know some people can find the mere thought of cooking from scratch highly intimidating. Having the proper tools to start with might go a good way toward eliminating their fears.
These Stainless Steel Measuring Cups from KitchenMade are certainly an auspicious beginning to any baker’s path. They’re made of high quality polished stainless steel, which is immediately apparent when you lift them in your hand, They have the weighty feel of a well-made item.
They are engraved on the handles and along the side of the cups, not just printing that would rub off over time. They also have a lip to help easily pour ingredients. One thing I love is that each cup features not only its own measurement but also has the next smallest size marked, so you don’t have to keep switching back and forth or dirty more dishes.
This is just a beautiful, gleaming set that I can tell will hold up to a lifetime of use. Tools like these make it a real pleasure to spend time in the kitchen.
