I need some better techniques -- and these measuring cups and mixing bowls from iSi are just what the baker ordered. They’re different from most measuring cups and bowls for one main reason: They’re made of flexible silicone. Here’s why that’s so nifty:
- You can pinch the rim to form a big or small spout to pour with total precision (less mess, particularly when you’re pouring directly into a narrow space, such as the chute of a food processor);
- You can fill them with boiling hot liquids, then grab them right away with your hands (no burns);
- The rubbery outside surface is easy to grip (no butterfingers); and
- Unlike typical hard plastic kitchen tools, food-safe silicone won’t break down in heat and doesn’t react with foods.
Would you ditch your old measuring cups and mixing bowls to try something different? These tools will change the way you work in the kitchen.
