Any cook worth his/her sea salt knows that weighing ingredients results in better, more consistent food. It’s a pain, though, to have to drag out your digital kitchen scale, tare the cup, measure the ingredients, then start again for the next ingredient. With the Taylor Digital Scale & Measuring Cup from Williams-Sonoma, you won’t need a separate scale. The base of this tool is a digital scale that can measure up to 6.6 pounds. Although the cup looks like a liquid measuring cup, you can use it for dry ingredients, because you’re weighing them. You can easily use this scale with American recipes (cups, ounces, pounds) or international recipes (grams and milliliters) with a simple setting change. “Preset functions automatically convert five commonly used baking ingredients (flour, sugar, milk, water and oil) from ounces (weight) to cups (volume).” Clean-up is easy, because the cup is top-rack dishwasher-safe when removed from the base. This measuring cup/scale is available exclusively at Williams-Sonoma for $39.95.
