How to Use a Dry Measuring Cup?

Measuring cups are typically used to measure a dry weight product. For example, rice or
beans, something of that sort. You don’t want to do a liquid measure in measuring cups because
they’re not made for that and that is a measuring cup.

Dry Measuring Cups Buyers’ Guide

What are dry measuring cups used for?

A dry measuring cup is used only for measuring solid cooking ingredients such as flour, sugar, oats, etc. These measuring cups are often made from either plastic or metal and usually come in 1 cup, 1/2 cup 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup sizes. When you are going to use a dry measuring cup for an ingredient, the capacity is measured to a level top of the cup. So, when you pour out the ingredient into a cup, use the edge of a knife or a spoon handle to even out the top of the ingredient as much as possible to receive the most accurate reading. When measuring ingredients such as herbs or greens, just pile it into the cup, and you will not need to level it off.

What is the difference between wet and dry measuring cups?

Generally, wet and dry measuring cups can hold the exact same volume, but they are specifically designed to measure their respective ingredients as accurately as possible. When filling a dry measuring cup with a wet ingredient, the reading will be very accurate, but you are very likely to spill even a small amount of it on the counter before you get it into your recipe. The wet measuring cups are designed so that the measuring lines are slightly below the rim, so you will be able to move it around a bit without having to worry about the accuracy of your measurement. Dry measuring cups also are almost never bigger than 1 cup, so if your recipe requires 4 cups of liquid, you will waste a lot of time using that 1-cup dry measure. Wet measuring cups, on the other hand, can be bigger than 1 cup and measure more liquid.
