No perfect volume? No problem with Bodum's measuring jug

Measuring cup1 (1 of 1)Some people have perfect pitch. I happen to have perfect volume. I know, I know. It's an odd talent, and I have no idea how I do it.

I can look at a pile of flour and tell you whether it's a cup or a cup and a half. I can eyeball a container for leftovers and everything fits in perfectly. My husband can show me a bowl of chopped ingredients and I'll tell him exactly how much he has in there. Weird, but true.

For times when he’s cooking and I'm not around to consult, I just bought him this nifty glass measuring cup from Bodum. Actually, they call it a “measuring jug.” 

Made of heat-resistant borosilicate glass, the Hot Pot Gourmet jug measures not only the usual cups and ounces, but also liters and imperial pints. And it also measures sugar and rice by the ounce or gram, the same with flour. It's genius. And I have to say quite handsome as well.

It's a good investment for the kitchen that will set you back just $24.95 for the 34-ounce size. It also comes in a smaller version that holds 17 ounces, at $19.95.

Available at cookware stores, many online retailers, and Broome Street General Store, 2912 Rowena Ave., Los Angeles; (323) 570-0405.
