Here's an interesting idea from Lee Valley Tools: Bottle top pourers that do the measuring for you! Do you use pour tops in your kitchen? I buy my olive oil in big bottles, then transfer smaller amounts to a dark green glass bottle with a plastic pourer stuck in the top. I am about to do something similar with my vinegar, too. These pourers take that idea to a new level, and are probably designed for the precise and the health-conscious. If you find yourself constantly measuring out teaspoons or tablespoons of oil, these pourers promise to measure for you. They have ball bearing valves that automatically release a certain amount of liquid when they are tipped over. They are color-coded by amount and they also have flaps that cover the tip of the pourer when not in use. • Measuring Pours, $6.20 What do you think? Would you use one of these? I just realized that these could be fabulous for the home bar, too! You could put a 1/2 ounce pourer on all your liquor bottles for quick and accurate cocktail-mixing.
