Having the right measuring tools is the first step to cooking success. It’s important to take the guesswork out of measuring ingredients, particularly when baking. Use graduated measuring cups for dry ingredients and liquid measuring cups for liquid ingredients.

Types of Measuring Cups & Spoons

Like most items in the kitchen, it’s important to have the right tool for the right task. Don’t bumble around with liquid in a cup for dry ingredients or flour in a glass cup. Here’s a tutorial so you can succeed in the science of cooking.

Graduated or dry measuring cups

When baking, use dry measuring cups only for dry ingredients such as flour, sugar, and oatmeal. Most sets include 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup sizes. Extra cups can sometimes be purchased as a set and may include 2/3 cup and 3/4 cup.

Glass measuring cups

You’ll probably use one of these just about every time you cook or bake. Cups in 1-cup, 2-cup, and 4-cup sizes are essential for measuring liquids. An 8-cup measure comes in handy for large amounts of liquids when making soups or combining multiple liquids.

Measuring spoons

Most sets of measuring spoons have 1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, and 1/4 teaspoon sizes. Because the amount they measure is small, these spoons can be used to measure both dry and liquid ingredients.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

In your lifetime you’ll go through dozens of these fairly inexpensive items, so don’t sweat the purchase. Buy the essentials, and replace them as needed. You can have fun with colors and styles, but at the end of the day, measuring cups and spoons are everyday workers in your toolbox of kitchen necessities.

Size

Most cups used to measure dry ingredients are sold as a nested set and range in size from 1/4 cup to 1 cup. Liquid measuring cups come in a variety of sizes, most commonly ranging from 1 cup to 8 cups.

Material

Dry measures are typically made of stainless steel, plastic, or silicone. Liquid measures are generally made from transparent glass or hard plastic, making them easy to see through and read. Sure, there are adorable pottery or ceramic cups available in both dry and liquid measures, but these are more for decor and not everyday function.

Design

Dry measuring cups are typically round to oval in shape, with long handles for easy grip. New versions made of silicone are collapsible and easy to store. Liquid measures generally have an easy-to-hold handle, as well as a spout for pouring. Some versions of the liquid cup have an angled side so you don't have to bend over to see the measure; instead, it can be seen when looking straight into the cup.

Colors

These kitchen tools come in vibrant colors; the hues you choose are a matter of personal preference. Measuring cups can feature colorful designs and unique styles. Shake it up with some of each in your pantry.
