Maxim 2-in-1 Jug and Scales
For those who love cooking, surely you must have a plethora of devices and gizmos in the kitchen. Not only that, you are fully stocked up on all the cooking videos of the latest celebrity chefs. These tools are there to aid you in your quest to be the all conquering chef in the neighborhood, simply because you can’t stand your kid coming home and complaining to you that Joseph’s dad who lives down the street churns out the best hamburgers in town, and cooks a mean sirloin steak to boot.
Well, if you are missing a jug or a scale in your kitchen, or are looking for a replacement, what better time than now? After all, the Maxim 2-in-1 Jug and Scales will be able to kill two birds with a single stone – letting you measure not only volume, but weight as well in a single device. If you need to measure volume, just pour the liquid into the cup, taking special note of where the surface is on the side markings. This is pretty much dummy proof and works just like any other standard clear measuring cup. The Maxim 2-in-1 Jug and Scales is capable of holding up to a full liter – translated to the equivalent of four cups.
If you happen to need to weigh your ingredients to that Aunty Rose’s secret sauce mix will be perfected, and nobody would realize that you have actually mastered her recipe, then the Maxim 2-in-1 Jug and Scales would also be the perfect device to handle such a situation. All you need to do is empty your bevy of ingredients into the cup, albeit making sure those are solids.
The integrated scale will let you know the total weight on its LCD display which is conveniently located on the handle itself. Just make sure that whatever you want to weigh does not go beyond 3 kilograms, (6.6 lbs) and it ought to be a faithful servant for many, many years to come. There are volume markings on the cup itself which displays metric as well as imperial measurements, so it doesn’t matter which side of the pond you’re on – you can still use this without any hassle. Not only that, this nifty little kitchen assistant is capable of converting five commonly-used substances from weight to volume, how neat is that?
The only drawback? This $35 device isn’t fully waterproof, so make sure it doesn’t end up in a dishwasher once you’re done with your cooking! Best to tell whichever good natured soul who wants to go the extra mile this lest you end up with a short circuited device.
