I have never heard of digital measuring cups but after I saw them I was intrigued and figured a lot of other people probably would be to. These are pretty intuitive and can actually come up with a very accurate measurements for both liquid and dry materials such as water and flour.
These not only struck me as very cool and very functional but also pretty sleek in design and would blend in pretty seamlessly with most of today's modern kitchens. Let's dive in and take a look at some of these digital measuring cups to see what they have to offer and if they are something you may want on your wish list.
Most of these digital measuring cups are primarily made from the transparent plastic or glass and come with some sort of plastic handle or are constructed from stainless steel metal and plastic. The model we're looking at uses a plastic container and has a digital display readout right on the handle. This measuring cup only comes in red but I did notice other models have color options that you can choose from if this is not a color you want in your kitchen.
How They Work:
- STEP 1: Make sure you have a level, hard surface to place the measuring cup on.
- STEP 2: Hit the on/off button.
- STEP 3: Select your unit of measurement from the pre-programmed units integrated within the digital measuring cup itself.
- STEP 4: Pour in whatever ingredients you want to measure out and verify the correct amount via the LCD panel on the handle.
I did go over some of the features of this Taylor digital measuring cup but wanted to thoroughly talk about some of the other features that really make it a neat tool. The overall capacity of this particular measuring cup is 4 cups in total or 32 ounces. There are reference marks on the sides just like an old school measuring cup would have and go up in quarter Increments and 2 ounce increments.
There is a pour spout for liquids, a digital LCD display screen, on-off button, a function button and they tend to run around $20 to $30, depending on which model you go with.
