There are all kind of ways to save space in the kitchen. The most common is to use nesting cups and bowls, minimizing the space required for a set by allowing them to nestle inside one another. Wilton Twist’n Measure takes this concept a step further by eliminating the stack and getting you down to just one cup for most of your measuring needs. The Twist’n Measure is a measuring cup with an adjustable base that can go from 1/8th of a cup all the way up to a whole cup, simply by twisting the base. The sliding base locks into place for each measurement, and can easily be reset when the cup is empty so that you can start again for the next ingredient. It is definitely a space saver, and it can also be a time saver since you won’t need to scout around for a missing 1/3 cup measure the next time you realize you need one. The scoop is plastic and disassembles easily to that it can be washed, and it’s machine washable, too.

My favorite thing about this measuring cup (which I bought on clearance somewhere) is that you can easily do a 2/3 or 3/4 cup measure.

Wow, if this really works, it would be great for my drawers. I hate having to fight with all my measuring cups just to shut the drawers.

I tried using adjustable measuring spoons and had the same challenge I think I’d have with this: I was constantly washing it, sometimes several times in one session of cooking. This could be just my cooking style — I keep two sets each of measuring cups and spoons handy, even in my tiny kitchen — but I found it more work than it was worth.
