Next, I put it on flour mode. I measured out one cup in a dry measuring cup. I tamped it down quite hard and it measured 1 1/8 cup on the digital scale. I thought "Oh NO!". But I realized I had tamped it down too much so I re-measured in the regular dry measuring cup and then dumped that in the digital and it measured exactly at 1 cup.
Just to be clear, I measured items first in regular dry and liquid measuring cups to just test the accuracy of this item. Now that I am satisfied that it is accurate, I will just measure only with this digital scale (not measuring in other cups first).
I think this is a great idea. It has the water mode, oil mode, milk mode, flour mode, sugar mode and a regular digital scale mode so you can measure whatever you want in this cup.
This item turns off automatically after 5 minutes if it is not being used.
I like the easy to read aspect of this. Having older eyes, it is easy to read.
I would definitely recommend this digital measuring cup. It is a good size. Probably would handle any measuring job you would have.
11/08/09 - updated. I love this digital measuring cup even more than I did when I first received it in September. I have now figured out that this has a TARE function so that you can measure one item in there and then tare out the measurement, add another ingredient (and it will measure only that new ingredient) and you can keep adding in more ingredients into this one large measuring cup. It is very handy. No more countertop full of dirty measuring cups. Then I just stir it all up in the cup and pour the batter into a baking pan. Could not be simpler.
Also, you can hold down the on button for several seconds and it will automatically turn off the digital scale.
Love this item!
After unpacking then reading the instructions, the first thing I did was compare the dry measures with my current measuring cups. They were perfect. Then I compared liquids to my liquid measuring cups, ounce per ounce. Again the measurements were perfect. I would then measure suggested serving sizes from box foods that I would prepare, again the measures were accurate to the cup and ounce.
I found the more I used the cup, the more I liked it but I was still concerned about using the liquids with the electronic device being on the bottom on the cup. I found a way around that. I just put a quart size freezer bag inside the cup before I add the liquids. This keeps the interior dry and eliminates the need to wash the cup out. When using dry ingredients there is no concern, I only need to wipe with a dry cloth and put the cup back on the shelf. I find this works for me.
Another big factor I like is that you can add by weight more than one ingredient at a time without blotching your recipe. Measure store the measurement then measure again as many ingredients as you need. This is really a cool idea.
I have even used my cup to weigh my outgoing letters to be sure they have the correct postage. What a very multi-functional item! NEAT!!
I am not sorry I took the plunge to buy this cup. This is an asset to my kitchen gadgets and my health. I am finding I take more care to eat better balanced food proportions these days. That in itself will more than pay for the cost of this measuring device!
HOWEVER (and here is why this is now a 1 star review, down from 5 stars), after a couple of months of using the measuring cup, it stopped working correctly. It no longer TAREs to 0. I am very frustrated with this purchase. I recommend NOT purchasing this product.
