If you’re an idiot-savant (or autistic-savant these days) with a flair for cooking you’ll love this measuring cup from Fred & Friends. The Equal Measure not only includes measurements in ounces, millimeters and cups, but it also provides an interesting comparison of random amounts to various objects. For example, did you know that just under 1 1/4 cups is equal to about 10 billion grains of powdered icing sugar? Or that 15 ounces holds about 10,000 grains of rice? Not only did I not know these facts, but I never realized how much I didn’t care!
The glass itself has a capacity of about 6.8 billion grains of flour, or exactly 2 1/2 cups and is made from heat-resistant, dishwasher-safe borosilicate glass. They’re available from Fred & Friends but once again, I can’t find pricing information anywhere on their website.
