One of the first places I saw the Adjust-A-Cup measuring cup was Alton Brown’s TV show, Good Eats. It caught my attention – and the attention of many other viewers because it was such a flexible tool. It can be used for dry ingredients, liquids and, most importantly, sticky ingredients that might otherwise be difficult to get out of a measuring cup, like peanut butter and honey, because the plunger design simply pushes everything out of the cup with no fuss. This Mini Adjust-A-Cup has the same design as its bigger brother, but is designed to work for smaller quantities. It measures from 1 teaspoon up to 6 teaspoons (or 2 tablespoons) and has measurements given for both wet and dry ingredients to ensure that you get the exact amount of whatever you’re measuring into your recipe. It gives measurements in teaspoons, tablespoons, milliliters and ounces.
I find these smaller measuring cups are handy when it comes to measuring out small amounts of oil, honey and other ingredients, things that I might otherwise be tempted to “eyeball” simply out of convenience.
