Where top chef meets trivia night

Equal Measure measuring cup shows fun facts that correspond to your cooking measurements

When I was a kid, I used to read volume after volume of the Guinness Book of World Records. In my later years, this quest for knowledge of the world and the people in it developed into a love of science and experimentation, Trivial Pursuit, and Ripley's Believe It or Not. If, like me, you grew up loving random bits of trivial knowledge, you'd be just the type who'd love this Equal Measure measuring cup.

Not only does the cup provide you with the measuring accuracy needed for premium baking and cooking, it teaches you a few fun facts about the world and the human body, volumetrically speaking.

OK, so the prospect of finding out how many body cells die on an average day might not be the goal you had in mind when you began to bake chocolate chips cookies. But the cup also tells you how much water is in a cloud the size of a bus, how much corn oil you can use to run a biodiesel vehicle, and how much salt is in an average human body (you can even try to bake a human body if you can find the other ingredients).
