Newbie Bakers Will Love These Visual Measuring Cups

It is good to have an option to the standard set of metal measuring spoons or cups on a ring found in every kitchen's silverware drawer for those of us who enjoy cooking. We've already seen attractive solutions like the self-leveling measuring spoon and the cooking spoon with measuring lines, but now you can add these sleek and well-designed visual measuring cups to your collection!

These brilliantly designed measuring cups, created by Chicago-based design firm Welcome Industries, are simply shaped like their corresponding sizes. This means that a one-cup spoon is a full circle, a 1/2-cup spoon is a half-circle, a quarter-circle spoon is a quarter, and so on! You receive exactly what you see!

The visual measuring cups appear to be one of those concepts that should have been thought of years ago, as they use fundamental geometry to solve a frequent inconvenience. It's not only a simple solution, but it's also a really important tool for visually impaired people.

Are Measuring Cups Accurate?

Certain measuring spoons have a difference of more than 30%, some dry measuring cups have a difference of up to 6%, and at least one liquid measuring cup has a variance of more than 2 tablespoons per cup of water (about 13%).

The visual measuring cups nest easily and are constructed of medical-grade Tritan, a high-quality, robust, and BPA-free substance that is widely regarded as the world's safest plastic.

Welcome Industries' visual measuring cups and measuring spoons have received rave reviews from customers. In a 5-star Amazon review, one buyer named Abby wrote:

“I.. bought these for my mom who is legally blind. She can see well enough to know there is a measuring cup but not well enough to have any idea what size it is. These allow her to cook on her own... It may seem small but this is huge for her. They are cool-looking and all but the real gem here is the amount of help they offer to people who cannot read the tiny print on most measuring cups. If I ever see them in tablespoons I will be buying them for her as well.”

What a great invention!

Melting a precise amount of butter has never been easier thanks to the dishwasher and microwave-safe measuring cups. Because of their propensity to nest, visual measuring cups and spoons may be stored in any conventional cutlery drawer. The spoons, which are made here in Chicago, even include a retractable loop for added convenience.

Conclusion

On its own, the clean, modern design is remarkable of these visual measuring cups, but the reality is that this kind of invention can truly change the world not for us but for the visually impaired ones!
