Bakers have to have good math skills because there is very little room for error with many baking recipes. Baking is definitely a science, where you have to be a little bit more precise with your measurements than a “pinch of this” or a “dash of that” – especially if you want to ensure that your recipes turn out perfectly time and time again. This isn’t to say that we bakers never “eyeball” our ingredients, but we do measure things out a lot more often than our non-baking culinary counterparts.
This Pop Cuisine Measuring Set is a funky set of measuring cups and spoons that is perfect for any math lover. The set includes five measuring cups and five measuring spoons in various sizes. The sizes are printed on the handles as mathematical equations and there is no cheat sheet – so you’ll have to do the math to figure out that the cup labeled “.5 x .5 x .5″ has just a 1/8th of a cup capacity. The plastic cups and spoons are black with white writing that really stands out and makes it easy to read the numbers printed on the handles. Both the spoons and the cups stack, so they don’t take up too much room in your kitchen, and hand-washing is recommended to ensure that they stay looking perfect after every use. We won’t tell if you have to grab your calculator the first time that you go to use them.
