The Dry Cooks Measure is an invaluable kitchen tool. Simply pour ingredients up to the desired level for speed and accuracy without using weighing scales. The measure is calibrated in both metric and imperial so it is easy to follow favourite old cookery books as well as recipes passed down from a mother or grandmother. It measures in ounces grams American and English cups and pints with the extra ingredients of couscous bulgar wheat and Arborio rice. The measure is also calibrated for fluid measurements and can be used to measure liquids for immediate use but it is not watertight. The Dry Cooks Measure has been made by hand in England in which the production method remains the same since the 1920s.
