A cup of flour, a quarter-cup of sugar, a teaspoon of cinnamon – it sounds like something delicious is happening in the kitchen. But before you can turn that recipe into something tasty, you’ll need to measure those dry ingredients – and you probably want to get those measurements just right.
Here are some tips and tricks to help you get the right amount of flour, sugar, spices, and other dry ingredients – no matter your level of vision.
Most measuring cups and measuring spoons have their sizes printed or engraved on the handle – but the numbers are usually small, and they can be hard to see.
There are several products available that have solved that problem. If buying new equipment is a good option for you, look into measuring cups and spoons that have braille, tactile, or large-print numbers.
You can also find measuring cups and spoons in dark colors, which work well for measuring light ingredients like flour, sugar, and salt.
