Take a look at this new measuring cup, about to be released by Taylor. It’s such a great idea; now that we’ve seen it we’re shocked that we haven’t seen this done before. It’s a measuring cup that has a built-in scale!

The measuring cup can measure up to about 4 1/2 pounds 3kg/6.6 pounds of weight and 1 liter of volume, with measurement markings in both cups and milliliters. The scale readout is a digital display built into the handle, and it’s pre-programmed to convert the weights of some common ingredients (oil, sugar, flour, water, milk) into volume equivalents.

We think this is a fabulous idea, and we’re very curious to see how this combo scale and measuring cup works. It could be very helpful for those of us who do a lot of baking and like to use recipes with ingredient quantities listed by weight. It also could be a convenient way to get into the habit of measuring ingredients by weight and to doublecheck weights as we measure things out by volume.

• Find it! Taylor Digital Measuring Cup and Scale, $29.99 at Amazon and available for pre-order. We know that this will also be carried by Broadway Panhandler, who says it will be available in September. It will also be carried by Sur La Table and Bed, Bath & Beyond starting October 1.
