Scales or Measuring Cups?

hi I’m Katie May and this is Katie my
bakes cakes is my channel to share
weekly videos that could explore a
baking topic or process a recipe of my
own as well as share tips and tricks
that I’ve learned along the way since
it’s my first week and I want us to get
to know each other better I’m releasing
two videos today this one that explains
a little bit about me and how I do
things and the second which is my recipe
from rocky road brownies we’re getting
into the recipes I wanted to explain to
you that you will see me in my videos
and in my recipes that I weigh my
ingredients instead of measuring over
the longest time I was very resistant
you know I’m a born American I was
raised using measuring cups this is what
I know this is what I’m comfortable with
but the more and more I thought it
speaking and reading about it the more
and more I saw people who were
encouraging to weigh your ingredients
instead of measure and so finally I just
got very fed up and was like whatever I
was gonna buy like this $11 scale off of
Amazon and test it out and as soon as I
started using it I was completely
converted so this video I want to show
you the reasons that led to me choosing
to weigh my ingredients instead of
measure and why I think you should too
reason number one so one of the great
things about measuring cups is that they
come in all different shapes and
materials I mean looks like a cat how
awesome is that
now they’re come in plastic like he is
and they can also come and stainless
steel like this one now the problem with
this variation is that these all say
that they’re one cup
Sherman’s but they’re all weighing out
different amounts that means that
there’s going to be a greater variation
between what your recipe is stating and
the amount that you’re actually using
which can have a huge effect on your
final outcome compare these differences
to scales if I guess I’m going to weigh
out this bowl see here it comes up as
446 those balls here it comes out to 446
reason number two is the amount of time
I save and less utensils I have to use
when I’m way versus measuring so fun
facts about me is that as much as I love
baking I hate cleaning and if I had my
way I would have an endless amount of
bowls and utensils at my beck and call
so it just so I didn’t have to clean a
single dish on your way ingredients you
have to clean all your measuring cups in
addition to any other utensils you might
be using to help you measure whereas the
way it’s so simple I’m just going to
pour the ingredient into the bowl or
plate that I’m using and maybe I’ll use
a spoon if necessary to remove any
excess and I don’t really mind cleaning
a spoon spoons easy to clean but a
measuring cup especially one that’s
shaped like cat although I love this
give you a really pan to exemplify this
point further I’m going to measure and
weigh out three common baking
ingredients for flour and brown sugar
I’m going to use a cup and four honey
I’m going to use a tablespoon I will of
course weigh out the equivalent amount
for each one so the proper way to
measure flour is to first aerate the
flour with a fork then you’re going to
take a spoon and spoon the flour into
the measuring cup as you can see is a
really messy process then from there
once you
got it all filled up you’re going to
level off your flower with a knife and
then pour into your bowl to wave flower
I’m going to put my bowl on the scale
then I’m going to press the tare button
and that will remove the weight of the
bowl then I’m going to pour my flower
into my bowl and if I pour in too much
it’s no big deal I’ll just use a spoon
to get rid of the excess to measure
brown sugar I’m going to use a spoon to
take the brown sugar and put it into my
measuring cup and as I do this I’m going
to pack the brown sugar into my
measuring cup so that it’s very dense
once it’s all measured in I’m going to
use a knife to remove the excess brown
sugar and then I can pour it into my
bowl too way out brown sugar it’s very
simple all I have to do is again tear
out the weight of my bowl and then pour
the brown sugar into the bowl if I’ve
got too much simply again just going to
use a spoon to remove the excess so I’m
using honey here but it’s really
represents any ingredient that’s really
sticky so I’m going to pour my honey
into my tablespoon and then once it’s in
the tablespoon I’m gonna have to use
another spoon to try and scrape out all
that honey into the bowl and you can see
that even with scraping out there’s
still so much ingredient that you’re
wasting on your tablespoon if instead
I’m just weighing out my honey
all I have to do again is just tear out
the weight of the bowl that I’m using
and then pour the honey directly into
the bowl it’s so simple there’s no extra
silverware required and I don’t have to
worry about wasting any ingredient it’s
pretty darn clear to see that overall
weighing your ingredients versus
measuring takes far less time and uses
less additional utensils not to mention
how much easier of a process it is for
each of these ingredients to be weighing
versus measuring reason number three is
price now you might be inclined to
believe that scales are more expensive
than measuring cups but the truth is
pretty evenly priced and both run from
the very inexpensive to the very
expensive my skills this one was $11 and
this one was 15 and it was reduced from
a price of $30 now found that both
scales are credibly accurate reliable
and consistent and for any home baker
who’s not measuring pounds and pounds
and pounds of flour either one will suit
all of your needs measuring cups also
run wildly in price but I found that the
cheaper you go the more likely you are
to get a plastic set which is a show
before can vary in accuracy now a good
set of stainless steel measuring cups
including all the tack cups quarter cups
table spoons tea spoons those generally
start in my experience around $30 but
when it’s the same price as the scale
here or even the scale is cheaper why
don’t you go with the option that is
easier to use is more accurate more
reliable that requires less things to
clean that’s that you know even if every
stone this whole spiel about why I weigh
my ingredients I do have the exception I
will use tablespoons and teaspoons in my
recipe just because sometimes it’s just
easier and I’ll be afraid of a measuring
baking powder or baking soda about
accidentally pouring too much in because
that’s an ingredient when you’re only
using a few grams it can be really hard
to fish out of a bowl you pour too much
in and these are really small and easy
to clean so I do not mind it at all so
that’s an over
why I choose to weigh my ingredients
instead of measure hopefully this video
is not you thinking about method that
you use to prepare your ingredients if
you’d like to see me of way ingredients
in action you can go check out my second
video today where I’m making rocky road
brownies super easy and super delicious

Disposable Measuring Cups Buyers’ Guide

When to use disposable measuring cups in the kitchen?

Disposable measuring cups are very affordable, easy to use, and have clear and accurate measurement markings. They are only intended to be used once and then must be thrown away. For this reason, disposable measuring cups are often used for ingredients that are sure to stain a regular measuring cup or have a strong unpleasant odor that will stick to the measuring cup. If you know you are going to be preparing something that has to sit in your measuring cup for some time while you make the other ingredients and you can already see it staining your cup, then you must use a disposable measuring cup. These measuring cups usually come in sets of 50, so it is handy to keep one set in the kitchen, even if you already own other measuring cups.
