I have funnels in a variety of sizes and shapes in my kitchen. I don’t use them that frequently, but when I do, I really appreciate how useful they are in transferring things – dry ingredients, wet ingredients, liquids – from one container to another. They give you control in a way that a pour spout on a measuring cup just doesn’t because they control the flow of your pour into your target. They don’t really give you control over measurements or volume, as regular measuring cups do, however. This set of flexible measuring cups by iSi is the first set that I’ve seen that really combine all of these features – making a very easy to use set of tools for the kitchen.
The set is made of silicone that can be pinched and bent to create a spout of any size where ever you might need it. It includes three measuring cups, with 1 cup, 2 cup and 4 cup capacities, and all are microwave-safe, dishwasher-safe and generally heat resistant up to 490F. These measures would be a good choice for any liquid ingredients, and a great choice for things that need to be melted, like chocolate, which often need to be transferred from container to container while you work.
