It can be challenging to find just the right gift for everyone on your Christmas list, and it’s a good idea to start making a list of ideas early.
The foodie who wishes it were easier to get an accurate measurement for wet and dry ingredients will find the Talking Measuring Cup intriguing. This product announces the volume you have added to the container, which eliminates the guesswork when cooking.
A clear, female voice announces how much you have placed in the cup, and you can place multiple ingredients in it if you wish. The cup is able to compensate for the different densities of flour, sugar, milk and oil in a single combination if necessary.
The $59.95 measuring cup also allows you to set whether you would like to have the reading stated in volume (ml or cups) or weight (grams or ounces).
