Measuring Cups Buyers’ Guide

How to read a measuring cup?

Start by placing your measuring cup onto a steady and flat surface, then pour the ingredients to a desired amount into the cup. Then lean down enough so that you are at eye level with the measuring marks that are indicated on the cup. The liquid should be right at the indicated mark and not above or below it. Disregard any bubbles that are forming and use the main liquid surface to read the amount. For dry ingredients, use the end of a spoon to flatten out the surface of the contents until it is relatively flat. Make sure the surface is equal to the mark. You can add or remove ingredients as needed while you are at eye level with the markings to be certain that you get your desired amount.

How many ounces are in a measuring cup?

Usually, a measuring cup is equal to one cup, so 8 fluid ounces. If you are baking at home without professional tools, it is recommended to use more specific-sized cups, which are usually more precise because you can just fill them to the top instead of trying to make the substance equal to a line marking. When reading the cup, make sure the ingredients are right on the marking and not above or below it and that the cup is on a steady flat surface. Never pack the ingredients firmly, unless your recipe states to do so. For example, flour is usually measured loosely, and packing it may lead to using too much flour and messing up with the final product.
