Bakers tend to favor precision when they measure ingredients, citing that baking is simply chemistry in action. (Baking soda volcano, anyone?) As such, it is often recommended by the pros to weigh dry ingredients; when you consider the volume differences between packed flour versus sifted flour it is easy to see that having a scale is important to achieve consistent results.

The Taylor Digital Measuring Cup Scale is a convenient measuring cup that doubles as a scale. The measuring cup has a volumetric capacity of four cups and is able to weigh up to 6.6-pounds. The volume markings along the side are clearly readable, while an integrated LCD shows the scale results. Complete with an auto-zero reset function; you are able to weigh ingredients as they are added to the cup. Just like your current measuring cup, volume measurements are given in cups, fluid ounces, and milliliters; however, this one adds pounds and grams into the mix.

The cup is also capable of converting common ingredients to volumetric measurements. It is preprogrammed with the capability to convert not only flour, but also water, milk, oil and sugar. One cup of flour can weigh surprisingly different amounts depending on how densely packed it is. With a measuring cup that also acts as a scale, you will be able to get the same consistent results as the pros do when baking.
